TabTimes for iPad, a business news magazine entirely devoted to tablets and delivered as a free iPad application, hit the App Store today.
The iPad has already changed the lives of tens of millions of people. TabTimes for iPad will report on the front lines of this revolution with a business perspective. It will focus on how tablets are used for business, work and productivity, with a mix of news, features, reviews, interviews and how-to articles.
TabTimes for iPad’s content is produced by a team of seasoned and passionate journalists, who previously worked for PC Magazine, MacLife, PC World and Infoworld. Our content team also includes columnists Ben Bajarin, a tech columnist for Time.com, Dan Rowinski, a writer at ReadWriteWeb, and Christina Tynan-Wood, a tech columnist at Family Circle magazine and a previous columnist for PC Magazine and PC World.
The intuitive interface of TabTimes for iPad combines the best of print magazines (depth of content, clean design and pleasant page flipping) and the best of news blogs (timeliness and straight-to-the point analysis). Every time users open the app, they will discover the latest published article. They can then either dive into the article by swiping vertically, or jump to the previously published article by swiping horizontally.
Users can bookmark articles within the app, comment on them, save them for later reading in Instapaper or Pocket, and share them with colleagues and friends via e-mail, LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook.
TabTimes for iPad is updated throughout the day, with a main feature “cover story” to be published every evening at 8 PM (Eastern time) on work days, and early in the morning on weekends – just when most people are ready for a reading experience on their iPad.
Written in plain English for a global audience, TabTimes for iPad highlights the technological trends which will shape the tablet ecosystem. Primarily geared toward managers, IT professionals and business people, TabTimes’ mission is to help them utilize tablets to do more, work smarter, push their career further and better their business.
In addition to continuous news coverage, TabTimes for iPad will interview leaders of the tablet industry and professionals who have already initiated tablet projects in their workplace. TabTimes for iPad also reviews tablet devices, accessories and apps, and guides readers on how to get things done with their iPad through tips and how-to articles.
