Our Rating: ★★★½☆ :: NOT QUITE WIRED FOR THE IPAD :: Read Our Full Review >>

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 New

Fixed an issue that caused some back issues to appear blank.

App Description

In the February issue of WIRED, Jessi Hempel profiles CEO Satya Nadella and his warm, fuzzy, and slightly bonkers plan to make us care about Microsoft. The Redmond giant has had to face up to the reality of mobile apps, cloud computing, and the decline of the PC. From embracing his competitors to giving away software for free, Nadella has steered the company 180 degrees on multiple fronts. Its most ambitious effort: Project Hololens, a new computing platform built around crazy holographic goggles.

Featuring:
• How skateboard legend Rodney Mullen became a Silicon Valley superstar
• Dumpster diving for fun and profit (lots of profit)
• Why Jane Goldman is Hollywood’s secret weapon
• If we want to keep the gadgets flowing, we’ll have to mine Greenland
• What it’s like to see for the first time ever
• Wearables don’t have to do everything—just one thing really well

It’s the WIRED vision of how innovation is shaping the future, featuring 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 disappear— you’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 “Store” and turn on the automatic download switch for the WIRED app.

SUBSCRIBERS’ AUTOMATIC-RENEWAL FEATURE: Your subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your iTunes account will automatically be charged at the same price for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period (another year for annual subscribers, another month for monthly subscribers) unless you change your subscription preferences in your account settings. You can manage your subscriptions through your Account Settings after purchase. No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period.
