Future US Releases Issue #2 Mac Life iPad App

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 16, 2010) - In an effort to improve user experience for Apple consumers worldwide, Mac|Life magazine has released Mac|Life Essentials Guide for iPad -- the ultimate handbook for mastering the iPhone and iPad. Fresh from the leading independent Apple-focused magazine, the new app was created based on feedback received from the over 450,000 iPad users who downloaded the first edition of the Mac|Life app. The app is available for $1.99 through iTunes.

Ideal for rookie and veteran Apple users alike, the new edition pinpoints the most exciting, useful features of iOS, the operating system behind iPads and iPhones. Like the first Mac|Life app, which nabbed an Advertising Age 2010 Media Vanguard Award for "Most Promising Magazine IPad Edition," the app focuses on interactivity, allowing users to read Mac|Life's live Twitter feed; share stories via Twitter, Facebook or email; and provide their own ratings for the apps that Mac|Life has reviewed.

The Essentials Guide for iPad features:

  • Tips for the Beginner: Master your iPad and iPhone with a Beginner's Guide and learn the accessories you'll need to make the most out of your iPad with the iPad starter Kit.

  • The Must-Have Apps Collection: Find out the very best free and paid apps that every iPad and iPhone should have the productivity, games and lifestyle categories.

  • Maximize Your Mobile Productivity: Learn how to work effectively from an iPad or iPhone.

  • Real-Time Interaction: Tweet, Facebook "Like," and send emails about the stories users are reading and the products covered, all without leaving the app.

  • Overall App Improvements: Enjoy updated features like the reader-requested pinch-zooming, place-saving bookmark, faster loading and transition times and improved responsiveness of swipes. Other enhancements include an in-app browser with an "Open in Safari" button, the ability to purchase apps directly within the Mac|Life review and cleaner presentation of videos and screenshots.
