Exciting Changes to our App

What is Texture by Next Issue?

  • Texture is the only digital reading experience that gives you an all–access pass to the world’s best magazines.

Why did Next Issue change its name to Texture?

  • With the most recent app enhancements, we’ve reimagined magazines once again. Our new name, Texture, reflects the breadth and depth of our magazine offerings as well as the many layers of rich content customized just for you—including Collections hand-curated by the Texture Editorial Team, trending story feeds, and the latest issues plus back issues of your favourite magazines. Texture makes it easier than ever to discover the content that matters to you.

Is my “Next Issue Account / Login” the same as my “Texture Account / Login”?

  • Yes, your Texture account is the same as your Next Issue account. You can sign in to the Texture app and to the website with your email address and password. 

My app says to login with a “Texture Account”, but I don’t have one…what do I do?

  • If you have been a Next Issue subscriber, you can sign in to the Texture app with your email address and password, just as you did with the Next Issue app.  If you don’t have an account, you can get started here:

Will charges on my credit card statement now say “Texture” or will it still say “Next Issue”?

  • Yes, your statement will read Texture moving forward.

Will there be any changes to pricing or what's included in Unlimited plans?

  • Your Unlimited Basic or Unlimited Premium subscription will remain the same. We will continue to add great magazines to our catalog, as always. 

My Windows app still says “Next Issue” – Is the Windows App not changing?

  • The Windows application will for the short term still be called “Next Issue”.  A new version of the Texture app for Windows 10 and Windows 8 will be available in November.
