Today we’re joined by special guest Jim Dalrymple who shares with us his experience developing The Loop Magazine which appears in the iOS Newsstand. We talk about why he wanted to build an app, the difference between the content that appears in The Loop website and The Loop Magazine, and Jim’s love for Scottish accents.

Finally, we talk a little about pricing Newsstand apps, and why he decided to support The Loop Magazine with subscriptions rather than advertisements.
