IEEE-CS Introduces iPad Application for Computer Magazine

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 6 April, 2012 – It's now easier than ever to keep up to date on new developments in computing. The IEEE Computer Society has introduced a free iPad application for Computer, its flagship magazine.
"This app permits us to provide the magazine to mobile users and enhance the reading experience in many ways, including interviews with thought leaders, videos, slideshows, podcasts, and extra written content," said Computer Editor in Chief Ron Vetter, a computer science professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
Each issue provides easy navigation through a clickable table of contents and links to its peer-reviewed articles. In addition, readers can easily search and share, and a library puts past issues at readers' fingertips.
