- iChat now Messages; iCal now Calendar; Address Book now Contacts. Reminders and Notes on OS X.
- integrated social with Twitter
- Airplay from OS X
Today's theme is...... ADDRESS BOOK-GATE!
SO, THAT HAPPENED.
This is the first time I'm interacting back, so let me start off saying I love the show! Newsstand apps are apps, but it's more than *just* a category in the App Store:
- They only go into the Newsstand folder (duh!)
- They have rectangular icons, either horizontal (newspaper) or vertical (magazine)
- They can change their icon daily, (something only the Calendar app can do otherwise)
- They can push data once a day, where other apps can only push notifications.
Cheers, Matthew "
"Quite a lot of the magazines have links and other interactive content - it just depends on the publisher. For example, National Geographic is also on Zinio, and has video, audio, interactive maps and other great features.
One more thing - the Zinio app has a great feature that no one ever mentions. In the Explore section on the app there are full articles you can read from a variety of different magazines. It's great if you're someone who doesn't want to spend money on a full subscription just for the occasional article you want to read.
