Long overdue!

This is great news for Design News and our readers, and it's long overdue. While DN has always made it's content easily available to readers, now our non-print subscribers can see the work our art directors and edit team do to make the magazine look great. It's a win for everyone involved. So, like Alex said, please let us know what you think, and how we might be able to make Design News even better.

Shouting aside, may we expect to see an Android port of the app?

TJ, I would like to see that as well.  On the other hand Alex could just get us an iPad.  What about it Alex?

TJ, We are looking at doing an Android app but I don't have a timeframe for you right now. As for Naperlou's question about the iPads, I say we buy two and charge 'em to him :)

I agree, Jenn. The timing of this is particularly good now that Design News is putting an emphasis on digital and interactive content. I would imagine there is pent up demend for high-quality mobile access to Design News content.

Looks like the big advantage is the ability to see a feature article as it's shown here (as a spread), as opposed to the way feature articles now appear on our website. For those who like to read the longer feature articles, this should be a big step up.

HTML5 Tablet Optimised Site Would be Better

As opposed to focussing on and wedding DesignNews to a particular (overrated) platform, an HTML5 tablet optimsed site that could be deployed similar to an app on multiple platforms seemlessly would be preferred. That way BlackBerry PlayBook and Android users would be brought into the fold and you would be future protected.

Latest Analysis
More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Kevin Gautier of Formlabs describes the making of a carbon fiber mold for an intake manifold, using a $3,300 3D printer, during Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
