USA Today iPad Edition

USA Today for iPad, the iPad edition of the popular dialy newspaper, was updated yesterday – to Version 2.1.0.

This update brings a design refresh that includes a new ‘easy-access navigation bar’ along with a couple other items:

– Join the Nation’s Conversation around Election 2012 in our NEWS sectionUSA TODAY for iPad Icon
– Design updates, including an easy-access navigation bar
– Bug fixes and stability improvements

The app also has a simpler new icon that has very ‘webby’ sort of feel to it.

I did a review of USA Today for iPad back in 2010 and thought it was a stellar iPad edition and one of the newspaper titles that had adapted best to the iPad. The same still holds true today. It may not offer the most heavyweight content and it’s not a New York Times competitor, but it’s a slick, easy to use iPad edition that’s very nicely designed and a pleasure to read.

I like the design refresh in this latest update. The new navigation bar is very handy and makes moving through the paper’s sections even smoother.

Here’s an App Store link for USA Today for iPad; it’s still a free, ad-supported app with no subscription plan required.

  1. The old app was perfect – the new one sucks. It has just a little more than 1 star for 1900 reviews on iTunes App Store.

  2. Please bring back the older version of USA Today for the iPad. I would give the new one less than one star. I looked forward to doing the crossword but it has been ruined.
