Publishing magazines on the iPad

Posted on 14. May, 2011 by in Tech

We saw a demo of an iPad magazine creation technology.  It was based on Adobe InDesign.  I was wondering if there are better ways to repurpose magazine article and visual content for the iPad.  I asked the speaker about his opinion of Flipboard.  He thought it was not engaging because it doesn’t have the visual bells and whistles.

For my product, I don’t think I will create an iPad application.  The goal of Silly Parents is to provide information to help parents find resources and support in the local community.  Distributing this product through iPads can only reach a limited audience.  Owners of iPads tend to be affluent professionals.  I want to reach as many parents as possible.  Therefore, I plan to focus on a website and email discussion list for distribution.
