A Must Have Whether You Like the Mag or Not.
This app shows the true potential of future publications with it intertwining text and media in an innovative layout. The July 2010 magazine surprised me in the way they replaced a traditional picture within the magazine with an embedded media object such as rotating a 3D object or listening to portions of musical beat being created step-by-step. Features that could not be done on paper. In the recent issue, they bring in a live twitter stream with a hashtag related to the article, simply showing off at this point, but really bringing past visions of such content to reality. Handsdown with the vast amount of media embedded within each article the price of this app is easily justified (come on its just $4) since it brings you into a new level of interactivity within great articles. I would easily purchase the digital version of the mag over its $1 more counter part and once you really get a good feel for what the app brings you will no longer value paper over digital.
My only concern is the size of each magazine. I understand that a vast amount of video, etc. is stored within each download but 300mb+ is just ridiculous. Sure if I only used the wired app on my 16gb iPad I could store a little more than 50 issues on here but I have far more than Wired on my device. And it definitely forces you to download from WiFi at home and no possibility for download over WiFi.

All the (major) complaints still apply. You literally can't login with the app. And if you're lucky enough to login, the app still doesn't recognize your subscription and asks for $7.99 to download a magazine. Oh, by the way, none of the online articles are accessible from the app.
I subscribed to Wired through their website only to find out that to use the app, you need a print subscription. That’s ridiculous.
