If there is no charge, would there be a limit to how many times you could make revisions to the same issue?Matthias Guenther (Quark) wrote:the pricing is easy, you basically pay a one-time fee per issue
You have to distinguish between the app and the issue. Even if the app contains only one issue and appears like a single app, there's still an app an an issue. When you do substantial changes to the content, of course that's "republishing" and you need to pay for the issue (but not the app!) again. When you do minor changes (like removing a typo), it will most likely be free of charge, we are currently investigating the possiblity on how to allow this. I can give you a definite answer and more details on this when we ship App Studio.

Could you clarify this please?Matthias Guenther (Quark) wrote:Issue charges currently are between $188 and $349 per issue (depending on how many issues you plan to publish).
It's a volume discount. So if you buy only one at a time, the price is $349. If you buy e.g. six, the price declines to $302 per issue, etc.

You can create a single app, a kiosk app or a multi-title apps and completely customize its appearance.
I am not sure what additional information you need. A single app is an app that can only contain one issue (e.g. like an interactive book maybe). A kiosk app is an app that you can load with multiple issues, e.g. a book stand, several issues of one magazine (01/11, 02/11 etc.). A multi-title app is an app that can contain multiple publications with mutliple issues each, so a "Magazine A" wih 12 issues and "Magazine B" with 52 issues etc. Does that explain it?
