As expected, subscription-based magazine service Texture has shut down following the launch of Apple News+ in late March.
Apple acquired Texture last year to serve as the foundation of Apple News+ and later announced that Texture would cease working after May 28. On cue, the app no longer functions as of today and points users towards Apple News+.
Unfortunately, while Apple's notice in the Texture app says "don't worry, you can continue to read your favorite magazines" on Apple News+, the service is only available on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac. Texture supported multiple platforms, including iOS, macOS, Android, and previously Windows.
With all due respect to Apple News+, I am going to miss Texture, which no longer works as of today. pic.twitter.com/yelanbPEsz — Harry McCracken (@harrymccracken) May 29, 2019
Apple News+ costs $9.99 per month in the United States, the same price as Texture charged, and $12.99 per month in Canada.

There is a really small number of publications available, it's almost impossible to search for publications, publications you have viewed seem to sit side-by-side with those you follow. Overall, it feels like a great big mess.
I hated the old news app because I felt like I had had no control over what I saw and this new incarnation feels the same. I'm canceling my sub until they sort this thing out. Ugh.
News+ is poorly organized and hard to get the magazines you want at your fingertips. May have to drop it. Needs a lot of work.
I can choose a category and view the 5-10 available publications. Now that I think of it, why would anyone need to search when there’s hardly anything available?
