I admit that the feeling of flipping through a book or a magazine can not be replaced by iPadding. However nowadays ipad apps of magazines offer more than a scanned paper copy. Now let's take a look what those iPad apps are about. After reading a few most famous titles, here are my thoughts:
Most of the magazines offer videos of feature stories or cover stories, buttons of online sharing via FB, Twitter and Email, and URL links. There are also differences I can observe so far:
Vogue (UK): Tester -June 2011 issue
Price: GBP 4.99 (paper magazine: GBP 3.50)
Pages: Over 210 pages, no precise page numbers.
Layout: following the transitional magazine, including the final stock list
Multi-media: video of the feature story or cover story
Interface: As it follows the traditional magazine style, you might need to zoom in quite a bit to be able to read the small fonts
Something unique: This is British Vogue (you will find out why I think this is unique later)
Things need to improve:
- a library for all the outstanding issues for readers to choose as for some reason I can't not see the list of the issues after I subscribed the June 2011 issue
- More interactive functions
- compared to what offers on the Vogue website, the App is rather limited in terms of contents
- more friendly price
Bonus: there is a free preview version for downloading
