Texture launched back in 2010, and is now owned by Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, Rogers Media and KKR. His talk came the same morning that Apple announced that it was buying a digital magazine distributor.

Texture is the "Netflix for magazines", bringing subscribers digital access to more than 200 of the world's top publications.

US tech giant Apple is buying magazine aggregating service Texture from a consortium of publishers including Rogers, for an undisclosed sum. Within its large catalog, the app curates magazine articles based on the user's interests.

Apple's purchase of Texture signals the Cupertino tech giant's expansion of its services segment, which includes Apple Music, iBooks and other services.

The Texture app is available for iPad, iPhone, Android devices and Amazon Fire tablets.

Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services: "We're excited Texture will join Apple, along with an impressive catalog of magazines from numerous world's leading publishers". It's likely that the app will operate as is at least for the time being, but Apple could eventually integrate magazine subscriptions directly into Apple News.

You can download Texture from the App Store for free. "We could not imagine a better home or future for the service".
