New Scientist Review
by on August 30, 2011
The New Scientist has been fairly savvy with technology, with the magazine getting a fully fledged website in ‘96 and the periodical being a champion for anything science and technology based.
The New Scientist app, at a mere 305KB, is a decent one. This is because it is a free resource into the subjects that the New Scientist covers.
Essentially this means that anything on its website can be accessed from the application – which is a bonus for those who want to read about scientific happenings on the go.
As future thinking as the contents of the app is though, the app itself seems to be frozen as a ‘work in progress’. Since it has appeared on the Android Market it has worn the beta tag. To be honest, the app is so slick and easy to use that it could take the beta tag off and you wouldn’t noticed.
While the beta tag doesn’t hamper the app, though, it does make you think that it is not as professional as it could be.
Saying that, the content of The New Scientist is so good that you don’t mind too much that it is a somewhat forgotten beta.
