The Rock and Roll band of Apps. for iPad.

A new form of communication.

After taking over the music download market by introducing itunes, Apple are now aiming to conquer the publishing and gaming industry with their new form of communication - The iPad. The future of publishing in the next ten years will dramatically change, and a new generation of independent publishing will emerge. What does this mean for the world and how we interact? Rock and roll apps are here to stay. Now independent publishers and budding gaming enthusiasts can develop their own media and through the Apple itunes store develop their own App.

This new media for the limited budget artist already allows their work to sit alongside the giants of lifestyle publishing including Vogue, Vanity Fair and Interview. In the next two to three years the digital industry experts estimate 30 billion Apps. per year, will be downloaded. Why is this happening? Well the main reasons include customer choice, faster and easier means to communicate and probably one of the main growing factors, the environment. This new form of communication does not need the trees to be cut down, the trucks to carry the magazine, the Aeroplane to transport to global destinations. Now the magazine and newspaper can be downloaded in much the same way as you might download a music file, and the even more attractive bonus is that through the App. as well as reading the article, you can view the video as well. This is the rock and roll of Apps. for iPad.

Uppror magazine - A new independent for the iPad.

Uppror is a new edgy Music, Fashion, Film and Photography magazine that is going to get an even wider audience now it has recently launched a new App. for the iPad. Fashion photographer Ian Davies and designer Jon Cowen joined forces in mid 2009 to begin publishing the title, with the aim of bringing their own sense of raw energy to the design and photography. With their growing list of contributors, Uppror magazine is fast developing a reputation for discovering a new generation of artists. You will also find some stunning photographs of established rock bands.

The magazine has a strong Global Pillage theme with contributions from writers, designers and photographers coming together from all corners of the world. The great thing about it now being out as an App. is that you can really get behind the music and fashion scene. You don't have to wander off to youtube to see if there is an interview with the band or listen to their music. It is all there on the App. Where Uppror leads other mags in this genre will surely follow.

The new Play Thingy from Uppror.

Uppror's new App. was all programmed in HTML and CSS coding so that viewers could get the full benefit of both the current and future versions of the iPad and with the increasing likelihood that higher resolution will be introduced to the iPad's version 2 - text and the comfort of reading is made easier. By also coding the App. Uppror have enabled the viewer to be able to change the image and text when the iPad is rotated, to zoom in and best of all link directly to the artists themselves. These features are often overlooked by the more established publishing houses, in their race to compete with rival magazines. With some magazines they show only a static PDF version of the magazine and you can only view the issue in portrait mode; with Uppror you can view the high quality text and graphics in portrait and landscape mode.

Wow, pretty interesting stuff. At the rate we're going, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if traditional printed magazines and newspapers are fazed out of our society completely within a couple of decades; with the way technology keeps advancing like this.

However, I had no idea something like this existed, so i appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Anyways, I'll definitely be sure to rate this hub up and post the link to my facebook page; since I know my brother would probably love to read this, as he's a huge music fan.
