Ratings and Reviews
I like reading the news. Always have. Not that I'm bored with the regular daily news, I'm not. The Wider Image is exactly what it says. It covers stuff that other news agencies just don't have the time for. If The Wider Image does cover a current case, it's not about the upfront info, but behind the scene.
The photos are a true joy to look at. I have several "favorite" stories. One of my favorites is about women who are in jail and have been allowed to keep their children with them until the child is 4. The original writer of the first story went back after 5 years to do a followup story. Fascinating and well done. It made me cry. Another is a man who is a transgender dancer in China. It was a story that surprised the writer and to me it was a story that showed me another side of China.
Get the app. Read the stories. Look at the pictures. It will definitely give you The Wider Image.
My favorite photo app!
This is a wonderful app. It is photography at its best and allows you to research the photographer, the social issues in the picture, the geographics and statistics of an area or region featured in the photograph, and just amazingly well done! This reminds me of national geographic on steroids. What I really like is the many ways you can view the photographs – sliding, slideshows, one at a time with extensive captions printed below the photos and the photographers' names. This promises to be something like a Flickr with a social and global geo-political consciousness. I believe this is an app that everyone will want to recommend to their friends who have iPads or similar devices. The quality of photography is outstanding. ***** Five Stars+
In the sad news times we have, this is a shining example of how to widen cultural perspectives in a creative and visually brilliant way….this is what learning about our world is all about. WOW! I just love this app. The photography is exceptional, each and every picture has such a high standard. The imbedded videos are so cool too (making Gruyere in Switzerland to cow bells was a really moving well crafted piece of documentary journalism). I'd so much rather see pictures and read a piece about Chavez in Venezuela on this app than ANY mainstream news organisation will provide. Kudos for such brilliant work!!!
