Apple working on Magazine publication tools?
FastCompany reports that Apple may be building templates (or something) to help developers produce digital magazines.
Apple's rumored to be building code hooks and extensive developer guidelines into a future version of Xcode (the software suite that lets coders create apps for the iPhone and iPad) to aid the construction of iPad-friendly digital magazines.
I hope it's true as I really wish there were a better way to publish to the iPad than through the ePub format and iBooks...
