It’s packed with over 600 images, in vertical and horizontal formats, with searchable database. The work represented was selected by a jury of visual journalists as the best publication design of 2010. There is a ton of amazing work here, including Magazine of the Year winner GQ. The app was designed by Huffington magazine creative director Josh Klenert. It’s available now in the iTunes store for both iPad and iPad mini.

Fred Woodward invited me up to the GQ offices to have an advanced look at their new version of the GQ iPad app. GQ’s new take on the app goes beyond the previous RSS-feed style. In contrast, the new app is based on the print magazine driven by Fred Woodward’s design direction and executed by the GQ art department, thus reflecting the look and feel of the print publication.

Must Download Magazine App from SXSW: SPIN Play
CD Devin Pedzwater and DD Ian Robinson worked with development shop Bottle Rocket to create the app which leverages the printed magazine, but also adds live news & reviews feeds and what you would expect the most out of a music magazine: music. Users can stream songs mentioned in the magazine in a unique immersive experience. Definitely a must download app (see also: The Cut, EW’s Must List).
