Belinda may have a point, not sure if she does, or not. I'm not saying she is right, or wrong. Me personally, I like the online edition mirroring the print edition in look and feel. I only have 5 minutes experience with this ap, but so far, I like it the way it is! But this is just one person's opinion!

Great addition -- news that travels with you. And by the way Belinda Wilson, thousands of newspapers around the world are offering digital versions of their print products.

From the ad I've seen on TV, I think the iPad version of The Telegram is flawed. Recreating the the newspaper on the iPad is not the right use of the medium. It goes against the way people interact with tablets/mobile devices. You should be creating new experiences, developing natively for the iPad environment itself, not trying to fit the old school newspaper to the iPad. You'll notice no other newspapers in the world take the approach the Telegram does, because this strategy is already outdated. I don't think the Telegram's digital strategy is gonna work as is for the long term because it is stuck and born from a print perspective.

I agree with Belinda - newspaper publishers have an amazing opportunity to rethink the UI/UX and to take full advantage of the capabilities of the tablets - some are doing that - the FT, The Commercial Appeal (Memphis) by developing a HTML5 mobile browser approach . Putting a replica "under glass" is a best a transient approach designed to save publishers money and to protect their overall (print) circulation numbers. Sure, some readers who love the newspaper format will like this - but they will be in the minority. I'd really like to see companies such as Newspaper Direct release aggregated audience engagement numbers.
