Here’s a short list of iPad news, reviews and how-to articles I’ve discovered in my recent reading.
About one year ago, I pointed you to a study by the Nielsen Norman Group (NNG) on iPad usability. NNG recently published a followup to that report. This new research shows the usability of iPad apps and display of Web sites have improved substantially, making them easier to use. But their research also shows there is still plenty of room for improvement. Here’s a link to the PDF downloads for both studies.
Imano, a digital marketing company, surveyed 2000 iPad users in the UK. A clever infographic illustrates the results of the May, 2011 survey.
From Gigaom comes a how-to article on controlling a Keynote presentation remotely with your iPhone.
Jessica Roy at Mediabistro suggests five apps for consuming the news.
Here’s my quick take on the five she suggests:
One of my favorite apps, highly recommended for saving articles to read later.
A darling of reviewers, I tried it but just didn’t find it compelling.
I was an early adopter of this news aggregator, but later gave it up due to too few articles of interest or value among those displayed.
Gave this one a quick look, but I still prefer my current favorites. See below.
Have not yet tried this one.
