Touchscreens, smartphones and the haptic future of games | Technology | guardian.co.uk | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
The arrival of touchscreen technology must be one of the most intuitive computer interface transitions in history. From the Nintendo DS to the iPad, people have just got it. Physically manipulating onscreen items with our fingers is natural. It delivers users from the tyranny of abstract button operations.

Can’t ask for a better authority on the browser vs. app debate than Mr. Netscape himself. Spoiler alert: Marc Andreessen says that everyone’s right–but that in the long run, it’s going to be browsers, again.

Why Windows 8 Is Fundamentally Flawed as a Response to the iPad - Daring Fireball

It’s a fundamentally flawed idea for Microsoft to build their next-generation OS and interface on top of the existing Windows. The idea is that you get the new stuff right alongside Windows as we know it. Microsoft is obviously trying to learn from Apple, but they clearly don’t understand why the iPad runs iOS, and not Mac OS X.

A quick look at the new Zinio magazine app for Android tablets

A quick look at the new Zinio magazine app for Android tablets | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
Already somewhat popular on iOS devices, Android users can finally download Zinio for their new, fresh tablet devices. The app is free, and if you act quickly (e.g. before June 15) you’ll be able to download a bunch of the magazines on offer (their choice) for free. After that, you’ll need to pay for individual copies (priced similar to the newsstand counterparts), or splurge for a full subscription.

Net Applications: iPad's web usage share 53x that of "nearest competitor" (read: Samsung's Galaxy Tab) | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
Net Applications is out today with a new survey that paints iPad’s web usage share 53 times greater compared to Android slates. As always, their findings stem from tracking browser and operating system usage across their global network of more than 40,000 websites so you should take them with a pinch of salt. Of course, iPad’s web usage lead might progressively decrease as the Android camp carries out their tablet carpet bombing. For now, though, iPad is king.

Microsoft Shows Off Metro-themed Windows 8 for Tablets - DailyTech

Microsoft Shows Off Metro-themed Windows 8 for Tablets - DailyTech | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
Apple's iPad may have a long head start in the tablet market, and Google is slowly starting to get its footing in the market with Honeycomb, but don't count Microsoft out just yet. The boys from Redmond today showed off what they've been working on when it comes to tablet functionality in Windows 8.

The entire Windows 8 operating system has full touch support and will scale from small screens (i.e. tablets), to notebooks, to desktops with their massive screens. Windows 8 can be interfaced using the traditional mouse and keyboard -- this is the "base" Windows 8 environment -- or completely through touch-based gestures.

Content-focused iPad apps value form over function, study finds | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
A report released by the Nielsen Norman Group shows that many iPad apps are confusing users by being too subtle about the gestures needed to navigate them, and some are not sensitive enough to the accuracy limit of fingertips. The authors also found that many companies with perfectly functional websites are wasting their time making a less-functional iPad app.

Will Publishers Choose the Open Web Over Apple's Walled Garden?

Will Publishers Choose the Open Web Over Apple's Walled Garden? | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
More and more magazine publishers are signing up with Apple to offer subscriptions through their iPad apps, including Conde Nast — which rolled out in-app subscriptions for Wired and GQ today — and Hearst. The appeal of that method is obvious: Apple handles the details, and publishers get to keep (most of) the money. But there also seems to be a growing wave of interest in doing an end-run around Apple and using HTML5 and the open web to offer a magazine experience. As other tablets emerge in the market, will more publishers decide to keep their options open and go with the web instead of Apple’s walled garden?

Playboy and Aside: the wave of web apps grows - Editors Weblog

Playboy used to be a revolutionary magazine, and the publication is once again in the vanguard. Because of Apple's no-nudity policy, Playboy hasn't been able to take its content to the iPad. Now, thanks to HTML5's potential for web apps, it has been able to expand to the tablet.

By launching a web app and selling it itself, Playboy can ignore the restrictions that Apple sets for App Store content. Moreover, it avoids paying Apple 30 percent of subscription revenues and is able to create a relationship with its subscribers directly, which means that it gets an automatic access to customer details.

Right Tools Can Unleash iPad’s Creativity | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
The iPad is great for activities like watching movies, surfing the Web, playing video games or reading digital magazines and newspapers. The rap against the iPad is that it is not as useful as a computer for creating.

But with the right tools — and the ability to control the urge to play one last game of Angry Birds — the iPad can also be a hefty workhorse.
