Ratings and Reviews
Decent content, poor presentation
This magazine has some pretty good stories and features in it, but it's presented in a wholly unimaginative way. As opposed to every other magazine developed for the iPad, this one does not take advantage of the the fact that this is a digital device and presents you the articles and images as if you were viewing a PDF document, rather than content on a dynamically changing screen. You must manually zoom in on content you can't see, and the experience is the opposite of immersive. I'd like it see the presentation match the content of this publication.
So I love .net in print, every issue is an experience... And the designers love their tiny type and creative layouts, so it can't be easy to translate that to an app on a 10" screen. And I sincerely appreciate that each issue is less than half of the in store price!
But setting the excellent content aside for a moment, the app is almost painful to use. All the things that make the print mag great like the multi page spreads and frequent inserts hamper the digital experience badly. I find myself zooming way in to be able to read the text comfortably, and then quickly loosing the flow of the content. It's ironic how much all these and other issues (in a magizine on online design) exemplify difficulties in translating from one medium to the other.
And just because I can only be objective for so long: Acceleromiter support? Really??? YOU CAN'T EVEN CLICK ON A URL TO OPEN IT IN THE BROWSER!!! Nor can you copy and paste it! And they add acceleromiter support... Thanks.
I expected more from a web design magazine. None of the features of the iPad are utilized to make the reading experience unique and enjoyable. Expect nothing more than a scanned version of the print edition. The text is so small when viewed on the ipad that you constantly need to zoom in on to read the content. Lazy development all around. The developers are so lazy that touching a plain hyperlink in the text won't open your browser and take you to the linked article. At the table of contents you can't click an article you want to read. Instead, you need to scroll through each article and advertisement to get to what you want to read. What an embarrassment to release this digital edition in its present form. I expected much better and would have gotten the print edition had I known the digital edition would be so terrible. The only redeeming aspect is that some of the articles are interesting.
