Wired magazine launches iPad app: 'Wired is finally...wired'

If anything can tell us whether the iPad is going to have a major impact on publishing this will.

US technology monthly Wired has launched an Ipad version.

Editor Chris Anderson says on his blog today:

The tablet is our opportunity to make the Wired we always dreamed of. It has all the visual impact of paper, enhanced by interactive elements like video and animated infographics. We can offer you a history of Mars landings that lets you explore the red planet yourself. We can take you inside Trent Reznor’s recording studio and let you listen to snippets of his work in progress. And we can show you exactly how Pixar crafted each frame of its new movie, Toy Story 3.

He goes on:

The arrival of the tablet represents a grand experiment in the future of media. Over the next few months, we’ll integrate social media and offer a variety of versions and ways to subscribe in digital form. We’ll learn through experimentation, and we will watch closely as our readers teach us how they want to use tablets.

There is no finish line. Wired Magazine will be digital from now on, designed from the start as a compelling interactive experience, in parallel with our print edition. Wired is finally, well, wired.

I thinked iPads are wireless aren’t they? Any ho, the Wired iPad app is available to download here and costs $4.99
