Lub iPad Hype… Vim Li Cas Koj Tom ntej no

flipboard ipad

flipboard ipadWe had a couple folks complain that the blog had an issue on the iPad where they actually couldn't read the posts. This was about the tenth person that complained about our blog and the iPad so I finally broke down and we purchased a few. One is for me, one for Stephen, peb tus tsim tawm… thiab ib qho yog rau ib qho ntawm koj tus muaj hmoo nyeem.

A few days later and I'm totally hooked. The iPad is a little heavier than I thought it would be, but it makes for a much lighter laptop bag when I head home each night. The screen definition is quite amazing and the interface is much, if not exactly, like the iPhone. I scoffed at purchasing one… it seemed like a waste of money without the phone and the camera (I heard the camera is coming out in March). It hasn't been.

I've already written about Lub Hnub and my intrigue with this application that's delivering the news in a really cool way, but most of my love for the iPad is just the way developers have taken advantage of the touch and the real estate to provide a far better interaction.

Qhov piv txwv uas kuv nyiam qhia yog Flipboard, daim ntawv thov uas thawb tag nrho koj cov ntsiab lus rau hauv cov nplooj ntawv tsim zoo uas koj tuaj yeem tig mus tau. Koj tuaj yeem ua tau zoo li lawv, teb on Twitter, forward, or send the article via email. The application is so simple to use that I've actually returned to my RSS feeds and am now devouring them each morning.

The key for marketers here is understanding that, again, user interaction is changing with your site. I'm not expecting everyone to go out and optimize a unique user interface just for iPad (even though we're looking into it now), but I would recommend you do more than simply make your site readable on one of these devices. As an iPad user, I'm officially bored with the typical site and I'm looking for the next great user experience.

    Doug, txais tos kom tog!

    Thaum kuv yog ib tus neeg hloov siab thaum ntxov (thiab tseem nyiam qhov tshaj plaws), Kuv nkag siab lub zog tiag tiag uas tau tsim thaum kuv txiv muaj 74 xyoo txiv tau txiav txim ib qho ua ntej kuv tau ua ... thiab tam sim no xaiv lwm yam vim tias ib qho tsis txaus nws ob tug neeg hauv tsev neeg. Tsuas yog lwm qhov piv txwv ntawm cov qauv kev tsim kho tshwj xeeb nrog kev txhim kho muaj tswv yim. Zoo li lub iPhone, lub caij txias tshaj plaws yog qhov software thiab qhov tseeb tias cov kev paub tuaj yeem hloov kho tas li los ntawm cov kev siv zoo dua.

    Lub Hnub yog qhov piv txwv zoo ntawm cov txheej txheem no. Thaum nws txias heev, tshiab, thiab tsis tshua zoo li lwm yam muaj, tseem tshuav ntau chav rau kev txhim kho (khiav qeeb dhau, hloov kho siv sijhawm ntev dhau, thiab lwm yam.) Tab sis qhov tseeb yog tias nws * yuav * ua kom zoo dua qub , ua tag nrho cov kev paub nrog cov cuab yeej zoo dua. Cov khoom lom zem!

    Thaum lub iPad tau qhia ua ntej, Kuv hais qhia rau tus neeg uas mloog. Apple thiab Steve Jobs ntseeg tiag tias lawv yuav ua rau netbooks tsis muaj txiaj ntsig?

    Txawm li cas los xij, tom qab tsis ntev los no txhais tes ntawm kev paub, Kuv yog tus hloov siab. Qhov kev paub dhau los ntawm UI yog qhov zoo thiab cov neeg tsim khoom tsim tsim zoo nkauj, cov kab ua haujlwm zoo los tswj hwm lub iPad zoo tshaj plaws.

    Thaum kuv tseem yuav tos txog version 2, Kuv yuav mus tua cov mos txwv thiab yuav ib qho kuv tus kheej, yog li kuv dhau los tuaj yeem yog ib feem ntawm pawg neeg txias. 🙂
