My first article for Thaddeus Publishing, makers of iPhone Life, was printed in 1992 and it was entitled "On the road with my HP 95LX." I am about to go on another road trip, for Voices That Matter iPhone Development Training in Philadelphia. Technically, it's a train trip, and with a nearly ten hour commute each way, I want to be prepared. My iPad is not the 3G model so I am looking for apps that let me load up on reading material for the ride. I could get some books via iBooks, but I'm more of a magazine guy. So of course I'll have Zinio with iPhone Life and some others, but I'm really interested in PressReader.
PressReader delivers the look and feel, not to mention content, of 1,500 newspapers from 90 countries in 47 languages. While PressReader is available for the iPhone, it really shines on the iPad. In fact, PressReader is a good app to show people when they dismissively say that the iPad is just a big iPod touch.
Here's a link to another article, by iPhone Life reader Liz Nutt, listing additional apps, such as InstaPaper, that I might find useful. I will test them out, as well as the iPad's battery life and report back to you!
