This sets the standard for the future of magazines.
Wired magazine has released its iPad edition in the Apple iStore (converted by Adobe from Flash to Apple approved Objective-C).
The June iPad edition of Wired costs $4.99.
The App is a 527MB download.
It’s intended for ages 17 and up. (Note the terms of agreement when you download it.)
Chris Anderson, editor in chief of Wired, says this is what he has always dreamed of. “It has all of the visual impact of paper, enhanced by interactive elements like video and animated graphics.” “We can offer you a history of Mars landings that lets you explore the red planet yourself. We can take you inside Trent Reznor’s recording studio and let you listen to snippets of his work in progress. And we can show you exactly how Pixar rafted each frame of its new movie, Toy Story 3.”
Wired released a video showing off the features of the new digital magazine. (View above.)(The video is encoded in Adobe Flash thus unplayable on the iPad.)
Apple Insider has more on the inside story on how Wired was impacted by Apple’s decision not to support Adobe’s Flash.
