Think I'll stick with the website
Thanks for the free app, but personally the website is easier to navigate and read.
Here's a few problem points for me:
There is too much wasted space in landscape mode with the menu bar taking up so much room.
Graphics are haphazard around the article making it distracting to read around advertisements.
The blocky graphics on each page make it nigh on impossible read the key news items. Give me an rss feed or a simple bullet point list any day over this design.
Finally, splitting content over various pages makes it time consuming to read. I just want a list of all the news items together not split out into an iPad related section and a News related section. I just want a simple list of all the news together on one page then let me dig deeper.
I like the option to save an article, but again the screen fills up so quickly with big graphics. If you had a front page of rss feeds then dug deep into your articles it'd work much better for me. S thanks ,but I'll give it a miss.
Macworld Express at last !!
Well worth the wait, this latest app lives up to all expectations and delivers. Love the customizable "My Macworld" page and the "save" feature is great for reading content when you have no internet connection. It's easy to get to the information i want to read and the content displays beautifully in both portrait and landscape. Well done guys.
As a freelancer been looking out for this for sometime and pleased to say it's worth the wait. Previous Macworld UK app was buggy and not formatted for the iPad. On first inspection Macworld Express looks and feels a lot more considered with good sized text and layout and intuitive layout. So far so good!
