Regularly $4.99 the Wired magazine iPad app is now available for free for a very limited time. The app comes with a free preview from the June and July issues of the magazine.
The interface is professional, basic and easy to use. Exactly what we've come to expect from magazine apps on the iPad.
The Wired app was a hit from jump, selling 24,000 copies in 24 hours, and still sits comfortably high in the iPad app kingdom, whilst other magazine apps did not do so well.
Of course it didn't come without critics, InterfaceLab suggested the app was nothing special:
‚ÄúThe only real differentiation between the Wired application and a multimedia CD-ROM is the delivery mechanism: you download it via the App Store versus buying a CD-ROM at the now-defunct Egghead store at your local strip mall.‚Äù
Whatever. We like it. Especially at this price!
