This is more of a wakeup call to the music magazines out there. You need to stop what you are doing in print. You need to hire an iPad developer and make an iPad version of your magazine stat.
This is just one example of the Wired iPad application and what it is doing. In just one day it is already at the top of the top paid iPad applications Every article is in the magazine, but for the iPad there are some enhancements. Such as music to articles, videos and some interactive elements. It is priced exactly the same as the magazine is priced, which i subscribe to. If they can someday get a subscription, that equals the print subscription or less (minus printing costs). The magazine iPad applications will surely take off.
I love the wired app, and I have already shown it to everyone as a great example of what the iPad can do. And what is possible with some thinking. I can’t wait till my favorite music magazine has an app, and i can listen watch and read the review of the latest wu-tang cd. Think about it, awesome.
