I do have to question the logic of building of a ‘Forbes Photos and Videos’ iPad app. Who is the audience for this app? Do we imagine people are going to download multiple apps for each magazine they read? There is already a great mechanism for displaying photos, text and videos on multiple devices – it’s called the internet. I think this content could be shown equally as well through a website designed with the iPad in mind.
The problem is that the iPad is a completely new device category and is essentially requiring that we rebuild the web in order to accommodate it. I just question the amount of time and effort spent building iPad specific apps.]]>
