Newsstand Functionality for Catalogs

Product:iPad SDK Product Version:N/A
Classification:Feature (New) Reproducible:N/A
At present only paid subscription Magazines have the benefits of the Newsstand APIs:

- automatic background delivery
- subscription
- setting a cover on the Newsstand shelf

Modern catalogs are for the most part designed just like Magazines, but they are typically free. So they are excluded from Newsstand.

This feature request is for the Newsstand shelf to have a second tab "Catalogs" that shows the subscribed catalogs. New editions of catalogs would then also get delivered to the Newsstand shelf just like Magazines.
