Almost there. Over the past six months we have been hard at work, gearing up for the launch of our new Ipad app. I truly believe we are pushing the envelope for what a news product should look like on the iPad. We have looked at how iPad owners use their devices and when they use it. We have researched what our peers are doing and what they are not doing. In particular, we have looked at what magazines look like on the iPad rather than newspapers. I was reminded of a quote I saw in an ad in Rolling Stone Magazine.
Modified a bit it describes how we see the iPad experience:
You surf on the Web. You swim in iPads.
I can’t wait to show you the results of our labor. We are planning to launch end of March. In my next post I will share some of the research that helped us define our product strategy. For now, here’s a little video that explains some of the thinking behind our product. For more info, visit www.ocregister.com/ipad. Read the official press release here.
