iPad – Old Media Becomes New

Apr 8, 2010

Been having fun playing with my new iPad. Here are apps that make old media new.

The Wall Street Journal – Breaking news headlines, stock market updates & financial coverage, plus business analysis.

Gorgeous layout, well-planned and executed. The only bad thing is that they are charging so much for a subscription.


NYTimes for iPad – Breaking Local, National & World News

Wonderful to see such vivid photos accompanying the articles. Nicely done, though I prefer to see not just editors’ choice of content but the whole shebang.


Reuters News Pro for iPad

They get it. Simple, pretty UI. Option to browse pictures only or news by category.


USA TODAY for iPad

I don’t often read USA Today, but they have done a good job with their iPad app. Bright, colorful, engaging.



Watch the latest episodes of your favorite TV shows such as Lost on your iPad.


Popular Science: The Latest News and Features on the People, Technologies, and Gadgets Shaping the Future

They have pushed their UI to the envelope. Not sure if it’s usable or not – maybe I just have to get used to it. Reminiscent of early WIRED – hard to read but you think maybe because you don’t get it – yet.
