Ok I have to be honest right off the bat. I don’t have an iPad so I can’t really say I’ve played with this or seen this first-hand but when they announced it I watched with great interest. I’m not much of a news magazine reader, that is unless it’s about computers, but if I had this I would be really into it because of how interactive it is.
When you buy the collection from the iPad store, you are kept up to date on current events in this ever changing world we live in. It’s important to keep up with current events so that when I make a joke you won’t give me a confused look. Also, it’s just good to keep up with the news so you are always informed. Especially children, because they get quizzed on current events and I remember being a kid and not being current with what was happening in the world because I was too into what was happening in my life. So I got a lot of F’s because I didn’t read the newspaper or watch the news. But I bet you if I could read the news interactively on an iPad, I’d be the first person to know what was going on in the world.
The collection is so easy to navigate with just a swipe or rub of the finger. It has many different features like text, videos, audio, pictures (panoramic and 3D) and animation which is way more than your average magazine can do. It also has rubbings, I have no idea what that means but I’m all for it.
The current issue of the collection is about “The Global Child” which talks about surrogates. It’s an important issue that will help people out who are considering their options when they cannot have children. Also, you gotta see how cool the images are and you have to respond to this post and tell me how the videos and rubbings look because I am very interested.
If you have an iPad, I worship the ground you walk on and I would encourage you to buy this app like right now. Buy it because it is just too amazing to not have in your collection of apps.
