I eagerly downloaded the Wired iPad app to check out how it worked. I was disappointed with the layout and navigation. I found myself lost at times as well as innundated by an overwhelming number of advertisements.
I’m finding the translation of magazines to iPad to be underwhelming to say the least. It’s not as simple as running content through an inDesign translator in order to prep for distribution. A good discussion of layout can be found on the information Architects blog.
