Wired Takes iPad to Task With Impressive Tablet App

Wired Demos Impressive Tablet App
The Apple iPad is just around the corner and it's time for developers to start showing off their wares. In particular, magazines and newspapers are lining up to unveil ideas about how we'll interact with "print" content in the 21st century.

We've already gotten a look at the iPad specific version of the New York Times, and now Wired is demoing its new tablet app as well. It might not be a finished product yet, but already it's impressive. It combines the beautiful and unique visual layout of the magazine with many of the interactive and multimedia elements of the Web site.

3-D models, videos, photo slide shows, and interactive advertisements live alongside the magazine's regular copy. Navigation is executed through swipes and taps, as opposed to mouse clicks or page turns.

However, most notably, the Wired Reader, like the Times Reader, is built on Adobe Air, which means it will be available for Windows, Macs, and Linux, and can easily be ported to Android and the iPhone. Check out the video of it in action below. [From: Wired]
