Expect to see more ‘lean forward’ work being done on tablets

StorifyStorify has gathered momentum as a great way to put together topical articles in aggregate from social media. And now the service takes another leap forward by bringing out an iPad app.  The mobility of the tablet, along with the fact tablets are heavily used at conferences and meetings, lends well to the type of content you might push into Storify.

Unfortunately, the walled-garden of Facebook prevents that medium from being fully explored via Storify.  Twitter, on the other hand, is a fantastic vehicle for Storify, and I’m convinced that those who underestimate Twitter might gain a better understanding if they see more well-crafted Storify embeds.

 

Please jump through this hoop needlessly

TabletAre you a big media company? Do you look at the iPad , turn to your cohorts and say “now here’s a place where we can finally make some scratch!”  Well, first make a brief stopover at  All Web Developers Should Stop Doing This Immediately.  Tablet apps are nice, might even be a great idea for you, but forcing your readers on tablets to get an app instead of using the open web is a one-way ticket to suckville.
