    Hmm, I’m not so sure. The Wired app looks very slick but it’s not really a new interactive experience. The fact that some transitions are up/down and some are left/right and there’s no way to tell which is which is a problem but the main issue is that it’s 500Mb. Per. Episode…! They’ve made all the animations including the loading status bars as stacks of individual images that are loaded one after the other when needed.
    It’s not a slick web2.0 programmer’s way of doing an interactive magazine - it’s a print designer’s version of what an iPad app should look like.
    I fail to see what the app gets me that just going to their web site doesn’t. I read the Toy Story 3 article on my iPad from their web site for free.

No public wish lists :(
