Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
SPIN Play is a new concept in music discovery from the publishers of SPIN magazine and SPIN.com. The app is free to download and includes a steady feed of news and reviews delivered directly from SPIN.com. For $1.99 per issue (or a $7.99 annual subscription), users receive 60-plus streaming songs and 30-plus streaming videos—curated by SPIN's editors—along with every page of SPIN magazine redesigned for the iPad, the kind of forward-thinking, authoritative editorial content and stunning photography on which SPIN has built its brand. Each issue enables consumers to watch and listen to artists as they read about them, resulting in a totally immersive experience. SPIN Play represents the next generation of SPIN as a cross media platform company and a premiere resource for music discovery.
SPIN Play features a steady feed of news and reviews delivered directly from SPIN.com, as well as all of the content from SPIN magazine. But SPIN Play is more than a magazine app. It takes advantage of iPad's inherent abilities as a music and video player to create a complete music discovery experience.
Monthly issues feature a SPIN-curated playlist of 60-plus streaming songs, which can be played on the app or over Airplay. SPIN editors sift through the musical clutter to deliver a concise package of the best new songs — and the app's advanced features let you listen to the artists as you're reading about them.
You can also view dozens of exclusive video interviews and performances with featured artists in the app or via Airplay.
You can share your discoveries with your friends via Twitter, Facebook, and email.

AUTO RENEW: Subscriptions auto renew, management of subscriptions and the auto renew option are through the user's Account Settings in iTunes - not through the Spin Play App. Any changes to the auto renew option take 24 hours to take effect.

Beware "SPIN = THIEVES"
I paid for this for a year, then they renewed my subscription for another year "charging me again" .. then they made the magazine free. I only received (1) issue, they took money out of my account to pay for a FULL year. Return my money!!! BEWARE of this company! This is not the way to get readers. This is how you destroy a fledging brand.
Multimedia Doesn't Work
It'd be brilliant if the music and videos worked. A majority of the issues promote and introduce new music, but the multimedia related to the articles doesn't stream making it hard to take interest in the article. However, those articles and features are excellently written and the layout deserves an A+.
Paid Subscription yet nothing
I paid for a subscription in Feb and haven't received any new issues. Without new issues, what did I pay to subscribe to exactly?On top of that, the most recent update said 'issues are now free'. Does that mean I spent $7.99 a year long subscription that days later became free?
