What's New in Version 3.0.2
Not ready for its iPad debut
As someone who has subscribed to Texas Monthly in the past, I love reading every issue for its great writing and content. However, Texas Monthly is not ready for its iPad debut although it's available for purchase through the iTunes Store. Essentially, the digital version is nothing more than a pdf of the printed magazine.
Unlike other magazines who have made the jump and have transformed the digital versions of their magazines with interactive content and formatted to fit the iPad's screen, Texas Monthly is not as enjoyable to read on a tablet with its pixelated photos and pages that alternate between having to be read either in portrait or in landscape mode. Not to mention, like most other digital magazines for iPad where the entire article can be read continuously without ad interruptions or page flipping, you're stuck with reading an article on TM and having to stop midway to "continue to paged xx..." at the back of the magazine to finish reading just like the printed version -- a major drawback in my opinion.
I think Emmis Communications should go back to the drawing board, yank the digital version from the iTunes Store, and just sell the print version until the digital iPad version is properly formatted. It'll make the iPad version a much more enjoyable experience and worth the purchase.
