As reported by a recent GfK Starch survey, the average level of reader recall for both print and digital magazine ads last year was 52%.  The highest digital magazine scores topped out with 80% recall scores.  The best digital magazine recall categories were Home & Building, Department Stores and Candy & Mint ads.   Readers also claimed that the interactive features helped them learn more about products/services and ads in digital magazines are a valuable source of information for them.
