The Daily, noua publicatie digitala pentru iPad


Astazi News Corp. a prezentat lumii intregi aplicatia The Daily. Conceptul este interesant, exista multe elemente unice in aplicatie, insa exista si probleme. In timpul conferintei aplicatia s-a inchis singura iar caruselul cu stiri se misca extraordinar de greu. Conferinta a fost destul de sobra, persoana care manuia tableta de pe care se prezentau imaginile nu se prea sincroniza cu vorbitorul, in general s-a vazut diferenta fata de o conferinta “prezidata” de Steve Jobs. Detalii despre aplicatie gasiti aici.

Rupert Murdoch’s iPad-only magazine The Daily, once described as “The New York Post Goes to College,” is now a go. It pledges to offer “the best of traditional journalism” with “the best of contemporary technology” like 360 degree photos and, naturally, lots of fancy multimedia content that is all pushed directly to the iPad every day. It’s priced at $.99 per week or $39.99 annually and launches today, unsurprisingly with Egypt taking the “cover” image. The team behind the new-age zine showed off plenty of that technology, including a magazine-like reading interface, letting you flip through pages or access a “carousel,” that gives you a higher-level view of the pages for easy, virtual flipping.

The Daily also includes audio versions, with professional voiceover so you won’t have to worry about GPS voice. It also features video overviews of all the content if you just don’t have time for reading or listening. You can share stuff you like on Twitter and you can even access Twitter streams right from articles. The site will offer app reviews and features with links right to the App Store. Sports fans get full schedules and news updates for the teams they like. Again, The Daily launches today, and we’re told that the first two weeks will be courtesy of Verizon. Good on ya, VZW.
