While U.S. networks continue to struggle to find ways to keep viewers glued to their television sets, they would be wise to learn something from both ABC and HBO. Both networks have long recognized the importance of the ever-evolving media landscape and in particular, the joys of iPad viewership.
NBC Universal, Inc. has finally released an official app for the iPad, simply called NBC. The app provides video highlights and clips, among other features. Unfortunately, the app isn’t all it should be.
Just fourteen months after its introduction, the iPad has become a one-stop shop to purchase and view movies and TV shows. However, it wasn’t until the release of Fanhattan that iPad owners needed only one app to access all of that entertainment.
The App Store contains no shortage of news apps for the iPad these days, so choosing just one to run on your special large-screen device can be a daunting task. Each one offers something a little different but nothing substantially. That is until ABC News for iPad came along, with its snazzy 3D interactive news globe.
