Knoxville News Sentinel launches iPad edition

Our new iPad E-Edition is in the app store, though it’s still a Beta version, so we won’t officially announce its launch for a couple of weeks.
The app is a replica of the print edition, but it has some neat interactive features. You tap a story to zoom in, or tap with two fingers to switch modes. The links to websites and e-mail addresses are hot, so you can launch them with the touch of a finger. And the app retains several editions, so you can go back if you miss a day.
Within a couple of weeks, we will begin including videos and photo galleries with each day’s edition. They, too, will be launched with a finger tap. After that, we plan to add an RSS feed so the app will include breaking news in addition to the news from the print edition.
Right now the app is free to anyone who wants to check it out. Within a couple of months, though, it will be available only to readers who have some level of print subscription. If you have have an iPad and get a chance, check it out. It takes a while to load the first time, but it’s quicker after that. Then let us know what you think.

    Can I donwload the APP on my computer? If so, where is it? I’m a recent subscriber to the KN-S. Why did I quit?
    1. You raised the subscription rate.
    2. You tricked me into believing–at first– that I was subscribing to both the Oak Ridger and the KN-S.
    3. You are now throwing that pesky free part of the paper that contains nothing but ads and TV news into my paperbox, a act which will only make me angry and vow never to subscribe again. Anne
