New York To Launch Redesigned iPad App Next Week


New York
 is working on a redesign of its iPad app which is slated to hit the newsstand on April 1st.

The app, which was designed by mobile development company Wonderfactory, has a totally new interface which is designed to let iPad readers access the weekly issue of the publication, as well as daily news feeds.

Apple Insider has the scoop:

This split design is accomplished by a movable bar — a UI element referred to internally as the “window shade” — that divides the page into an upper half, featuring the latest news curated from NYmag.com, and a lower half, which offers access to the weekly magazine issue. Users simply drag the bar up or down to choose which material they wish to read, and the bar can be quickly pulled to the other side of the screen to switch.
