WIRED's first take on iPad magazines is ambitious but ultimately falls short of its goal of redefining the magazine for the digital age.
What's NewNumerous improvements and bug fixes, including a fix for offline reading with iOS 6.1
App DescriptionItâ€™s easier than ever to enjoy this groundbreaking monthly on your iPad. Subscribe to the iPad edition of WIRED or, if youâ€™re already a print subscriber in the US or Canada, download the WIRED app to access the tablet version for free.
In the May issue of WIRED, we devote every page to a celebration of our 20th anniversary: an encyclopedic look at the WIRED world, from Angry Bird to ZeuS crimeware. Twenty years ago, in his very first editorâ€™s letter, Louis Rossetto wrote, â€śThere are a lot of magazines about technology. WIRED is not one of them. WIRED is about the most powerful people on the planet today: the Digital Generation.â€ť Exactly two decades later, the time has come to reflect on this generation of leaders, thinkers, and makers. These people, their companies, and their ideas have transformed the future we live in today. They have made progressâ€”and WIREDâ€”possible. Donâ€™t miss â€śTitans,â€ť a photo essay of the champions of innovation by renowned portraitist Platon; the Internet meme quiz; Biz Stone on faking it; and more! Itâ€™s the WIRED vision of how technology is shaping the future, and it features content not available in the print magazine.

CURRENT APP USERS: Once you install the latest version of the WIRED app and accept an upgrade to iOS 5, the WIRED icon on your iPad will disappearâ€” youâ€™ll now find WIRED in your Newsstand folder. Tap the image of our cover to read the latest issue and access your library. If you choose not to do both of these actions, the WIRED icon will remain on your device and the app will remain accessible through it. In addition, to take advantage of having the latest issue automatically downloaded on to your device, go into your Settings on your iPad, select â€śStoreâ€ť and turn on the automatic download switch for the WIRED app.
