Wired Goes Digital

Sweet: The Wired iPad App: A Video Demonstration. --MM


The most interesting thing about this is at the very end, where it drops the ADOBE logo in there and credits them for the innovation.

So, whoa, wha? Flash?

Adobe could have just helped with an inDesign system to export the files in part.

That doesn't really warrant credit, does it? That's a pdf!

my guess is it's not an ipad

I agree with Gabriel - it's another device.

Oh hmmmm... I guess that's possible. Weird, but possible.

I know that Wired is working on an iPad app, so I assumed this was it.... now I'm not sure.

Alright, here's the answer: both yes and no.

I can't wait for the 360 product view to be the next Photoshop Lens Flare filter, but really where are the live data feeds implemented into those "oh-so-pretty" infographics? Now that would be interesting.

welll... i'd say it's more 'no' than yes... for now at least.

will it be possible for esquire to compile an ipad (iphone) app from their flash IDE that functions just like that and allows you to download new monthly mags? theoretically yes, but i just got the CS5 prerelease so i'll let you know more when i get a chance to try it.

i'm most interested to see just what the limitations of translating AS3 to Objective C are, and how they can leverage certain things like OpenGL.
