I LOVE being able to read National Geographic magazine on my iPad! In so many ways, the iPad version of National Geographic defines the possibilities of engaging multimedia content on digital tablets. I recorded a five minute screencast today to explain and SHOW what I mean when I say, “The iPad app version of National Geographic magazine is AMAZING!” National Geographic on the iPad shows how powerful the combination of print, image, video, and hyperlinked media can be.
Check out the portions of the January 2013 issue I showcased in this video on:
I specifically highlighted the article “Risk Takers” and “The Moment: Fireside Spirit” by Karla Gachet. For more about Karla’s adventures in Ecuador, check out the 4.5 minute NG video, “Amazon Adventure—Documenting Life in Ecuador’s Yasuní National Park.”
An annual print subscription to National Geographic, which INCLUDES the iPad version free, is just $15. What are you waiting for? This is digital journalism at its finest!
