Wired for iPad Issue 2

Wired Magazine for iPad has had an update, to Version 1.1.  This latest version is now a free app for those newly acquiring it, and a free update for those of us who purchased the original app / June issue.

The app itself is free, and now offers in-app purchase for current and back issues of the Wired Magazine iPad edition.  If you had already purchased the June issue it shows up as a free download in the new version of the app. 

The price tag for the July issue has been dropped by a dollar, to $3.99.  Still missing is a subscription option for the iPad / digital version of the magazine. 

I’ve updated the app and purchased the new issue, but haven’t had a chance to browse it at all as yet.  The app took quite a while to download – it was stuck at ‘Waiting’ stage for several minutes, I assume due to heavy traffic given the popularity of the first issue.  Once it got past the waiting stage the actual download was quite quick, as was the July issue which weighs in at 337MB.

Wired is the best magazine title I’ve seen so far on the iPad, the one that best embraces what the iPad can do.  You can check out my review of it here: http://ipadinsight.com/ipad-app-reviews/review-wired-magazine-for-ipad/

And you can find the latest version of Wired Magazine for iPad in the App Store now.

  1. I've been a subscriber of wired magazine in print for several years. I would like to move away from paper to the iPad version. Why can I not move my print subscription to iPad? It seems ridiculous that I can only purchase one month at a time for the iPad at 3 times the price of each magazine on a one year print subscription.

    1. I know Wired's publishers have said they will be looking at subscription options over coming months – hopefully they'll do something good for existing / future print subscribers.
