Situation: We have a client who will publish free folios to a free multi-viewer app. The client wants the app to live outside of Newsstand.
What we know: Free folios show up in the app as soon as they're published. But, Apple offers the ability to configure free subscriptions.
Our question: What's the benefit in configuring free subscription for non-Newsstand apps? Or, does Apple simply require free subscriptions for free-folio/free-multi-issue apps to live in Newsstand?
Thanks, as always.
