Architizer, the online source for new architecture, is now on iPad. Tens of thousands of buildings are represented with huge pictures, all in a constantly updated stream.
Every week, hundreds of new buildings are added to Architizer.com by the architects who design them. No more waiting for a coffee table monograph or a monthly magazine in the mail – the Architizer app is a new kind of glossy magazine showcasing the best examples of architecture in magnificent resolution with an elegant iPad interface.

What's New in Version 1.3
* General improvements
Great content but bad app
This app has GREAT potential but it needs so much more care. The content is excellent. But please make this more then just an awkward mobile website.
There are several issues:
1) I can share to Facebook and twitter but there is no other bookmarking system except of email. An in-app like button that creates a favs list would be very much appreciated.
2) post to twitter is buggy. You can't cancel out of the post to Twitter dialog. Bad!
3) Not optimised for retina display
4) not much gesture support. Pinch to open and close images? No.
5) Interface is ok but not very iOS like. Consistency please.
Look at applications like Instapaper (with which it should REALLY integrate IMHO) and Flipboard. That's how a real app looks like. I would not mind paying a £1 or £2 if this fulfilled it's potential!
Love the app, everything seems to work perfectly for myself on an iPad Air, running IOS 7.1. Only downside to the app so far is you cannot remain logged in when you exit the app. This is also the same for website version too, all my passwords are stored in Keychain but the pop up to login in doesn't support this.
I think it needs iO6 update, email is not working.
Also favourites option and retina update would be nice.
