A veterinary publication gets it right!
I have purchased many iPad magazines and for the most part have been very disappointed. They should all follow your example. Outstanding interactive content. Way to go!

One of the better ones out there.
Is it perfect? Nah, but it's one of the better e-pubs out there. Firstly, the design has been made with a tablet in mind. It's not torn straight from a magazine page and then directly reloaded into the app. The images and text are the appropriate size to keep you from having to zoom in and out on the screen all the time. I also like the length of the two issues I've seen so far. Some mags like Wired or (heaven forbid) a fashion mag clock in at 100 to 150 pages +. It's a mountain of content you never quite get around to. The 360app run in the 40ish page range. It's a lot more digestible, you won't find yourself shutting the app down before you get to the end. On certain subjects, the content appears to be edited with a shorter "highlights" approach in mind. It works well for this format, and facilitates the distilling of information quickly. The space requirements on your iPad needed to download an issue are small. This is a pro and a con in the same breath. The issues will take up little space on your tablet, which means you can keep lots of them downloaded with no size penalty. But the trade off is the interactivity requires an internet connection. That means this app wouldn't be a very good "airplane app" as most of the meaningful benefits of the app are wrapped up in the interactivity portions of it. Some of the interactivity is a little gimmicky, but most of it is appropriate for the content. You'll find built in Facebook feeds, pop-up videos, audio snippets, show-hide info, and even a Twitter short cut link for articles which I thought was nifty. A few things could be tweaked to make it better. There's too fine a fine line between touching to activate the page browser (a very quick "tap") and using the interactive elements (a slightly slower "press".) The app also crashes from time to time. (But not egregiously more than any other app I use.) So far, for only two issues in, it's pretty good. And of course, it's free. Can't beat free. I look forward to more issues.

Love this app
Great stories. Full of video and pictures. Information tucked under your finger tips. Can't wait for the next issue.
