NatGeo IPad AppNatGeo IPad App, No doubt about it, the iPad has changed the way we consume media and altered the way in defining what is a magazine. Those of us who use Apple’s incredibly popular gadget have come to use the idea that our “magazine” now includes audio, video and interactive elements that are simply not possible in the print versions. This is demonstrated perfectly in a new implementation of the National Geographic, which highlights its list of 50 places of a lifetime compiled by Nat Geo Traveler.

As its name implies, this application further outbreaks some of the best destinations in the world, broken down into five categories. These categories include “Urban Spaces,” “Wild Places,” “Paradise Found”, “Field of consolidation” and “Wonders of the World.” Clicking on any of these items will present a list of 10 places, that style will appear in full screen animation and music. From there, simply browse through individual targets to hit to the left and right. Scroll up and down has the full article on the location, offering views to the site, and why it deserves a place on the list. Everything is very intuitive and easy to use, with gestures that are second nature to any owner of IPAD.

Individual items that accompany the different locations are typical of Nat Geo rate. That is, they are well written, deep, and are likely to inspire a wish to visit the places described. The stories are written by the likes of Bill Bryson, Jean-Michel Cousteau, and George Plimpton, among others, who share their personal thoughts about what makes these places so magical. Places like the Serengeti, the Seychelles, and Venice, Italy.

The national brand of geographic photography makes an appearance and, have course. Stunning images accompany the travel essays, which each destination to glimpse the life and tempting offer what travelers can expect in these places of a lifetime. As expected, the photos are one of the highlights of this application, and many of them have been drooling all over the screen.

Other application features include videos, interactive “fast facts”, extended photo galleries, and maps of Nat Geo always popular. I have much sympathy for the 360?? Degree panoramic images that maximize the iPad Touch Screen and built in checklists that allow you to highlight the destinations you’ve visited, while adding others to their own personal bucket list.

The application weighs a whopping 464 MB in size, which means that it takes a while to download. If you intend to read it while on your next vacation, be sure to download and soon. Once installed, all that is autonomous, however, which means you do not need an Internet connection to take advantage of all it has to offer.
