Game Informer Comes to iPad and Android Devices
I get Game Informer magazine in the mail but I never read it, I just give it to my kids. I got it for free with that PowerUp Rewards membership from GameStop. Anyway, you can now get it on your iPad or Android device for $4.99 per issue or get a subscription for 12 months for $19.99.

I’m curious: I have never tried digital susbscriptions, so are the issues persistant? (That is, can you access them after that particular month?) My husband has the free sub from GameStop, too, and I’d LOVE to not having them lying around for a year afterwards… If we can just get a digital, and he can look at them months later that way, it’d be a great way to try to tame the crap lying around the house.
Oh wait, 10″ or more? Darn; so the Fire is out. Phooey.
