Gourmet Magazine for iPad Gets it Right

Looking for the best magazine experience for the iPad? Sure we have flashy titles like Times and Wired, but Gourmet Live for the iPad helps you reveal your inner cook by providing users with an incredibly clean format.

When it came to Wired’s debut, one of the biggest complaints was about the column layout. Gourmet does away with such silly jitter and flashy animations. In fact, there’s nothing completely broken or confusing about Gourmet - it captures the essence of the iPad by being linear, simple, and elegant. I’m not a cook, nor am I interested in learning how to make a great Pumpkin Pie, but Gourmet Live may at least encourage me to try.
