Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely Amazing, but....
Get this Magazine. A great way to learn about and experience the apps we want. It's done in engaging and fun manner. I wish all magazines were done this way.
Now all that being said, there is still room for improvement and I hope that the developers will try to improve their creation with every issue. Also, apps and iPad news come out so fast that I wish they would make this a bi-weekly rather than a monthly. And more content is definitely needed. More pages and articles would be nice. I'm sure that will come though.
I love that it is free, but if they did have more content and did make it a bi-weekly, I would even pay to get this. But for the amount of advertising they have in the magazine it really should be free (gain more customers being free, and make more on the backs of advertisers, not us fun loving app addicts).
Lastly I would just like to say "great job on your first issue. Not bad as first helping. Now knock it out of the park with the next issue".
Quality content, wonky interface, why not in news stand?
Here's the thing about the iPad: it doesn't take a tutorial to use the device, so it shouldn't take a tutorial to use a Magazine app.
The other problem: not in news stand. I don't want separate magazine apps, I want them all in the news stand, especially since I can't put the news stand into another folder. Use the designated space. And the way the last page is worded, it looks like issue two will be a separate app as well. Another mistake. Please don't do that.
The good stuff, you ask? The content is excellent. Smart graphics, smooth navigation. Articles are pretty good. I like the rating system for the reviews.
Five Star Quality
This app/magazine is what the iPad is all about. Stunning visuals, extremely interactive, very user friendly. Ignore the complaints in the reviews. This is what exactly what magazines for the iPad should really be like. Hopefully this sets and raises the bar for all the other iPad magazines. I would absolutely pay and subscribe for Swipe. Looking forward to the next issue, and I must say, how considerate it is to give the first one away for free considering how much time and money had to be poured in to even get Swipe started. Beautiful, a masterpiece. Cannot wait for more!
