Not content with iPad content, a good list of do’s and don’ts for the transition from print to pad at Barac Consulting (via MagCulture). ‘The creatives are not grappling enough with the problems of interface and user experience, or about touch or how the devices are used. Too much is put into making the ipad version LOOK like the print version’. Historically there’s been some confusion when print and technology come together – the short-lived CD-Rom magazine trend, for example (with some even directly comparing iPad to CD-Rom).
Wikipedia’s page on disk magazines is surprisingly light on titles; today, those transitioning to iPad are mostly existing titles, rather than new launches. But… the curiosity that drives online admiration for editorial is a near 50/50 split between design and content; things to read and things to look at. A good article or a great layout endures for decades, as evidenced by textual archives or the many collections of scans that litter the internet. Can a fancy slice of multimedia possibly have the same effect?
