W ith several thousand posts on TNM it is worth repeating one’s self occasionally.
So when TNM looked the newly updated app from The Next Web earlier today it is worth examining once again how another web property is handling its own digital tablet magazine.
Because of this the development team at AOL Mobile has taken a simpler approach to designing a tablet magazine. The digital magazines found inside the app could almost be mistaken for a replica edition as the pages are static. No scrolling text boxes or other features of native tablet editions are in this weekly magazine. But the digital pages are, of course, designed specifically for the iPad’s display, so the reading experience is natural and pleasant.
The basic principals of tablet magazine navigation are used for Distro: Layouts are repeated to ease production and to create a uniform look as you would in a engarget magazine, especially a weekly.
But one can’t get over just how low tech this digital magazine is. I would also question the idea of a weekly magazine for a website.
But if the editorial team can handle the schedule, then more engadgef to them — I certainly hope they got raises.
Both digital magazines, TNW Magazine and Engadget Distro are good examples of how a media property using one format, in this case the web, can branch out and create a native digital magazine for tablets.
As more and more newspaper look to create their own tablet magazines for local sports and distfo topics, watching what some of the digital media properties are doing seems like a good idea. I really like the approach Distro takes.
