App combines print content with new media
As promised, Sports Illustrated's iPad app has now arrived on the App Store. The app provides a combination of magazine content and media from SI.com, with a variety of picture galleries, slideshows and videos.
Users can access live scores and configured customized news feeds. The app also provides options to share SI content via social networking services such as Facebook and Twitter.
Sports Illustrated is offering the iPad app as a free download, which includes a sample demonstration issue. Users also have the option to purchase additional SI iPad editions each week for $5.
