Mens Health Upgrades to More Interactive iPhone Edition

first_imgSean Bumgarner, Rodale’s interactive design director, says the company’s history with developing branded spinoff apps,  such as Jimmy the Bartender and a variety of magazine-branded exercise and recipe apps, has helped prove the market for a full Men’s Health brand introduction for the  iPhone and iPod Touch. Plus, when readers download a tablet version of the magazine, they automatically get the iPhone version as well. Of that audience, Bumgarner says usage went from six percent to 16 percent on the iPhone since June—a market of users that Rodale believes is very different from the iPad. “It’s a separate market opportunity from the tablet,” says Bumgarner. “In addition to the tablet, people want the latest iPhone, too. They are significantly different experiences.”Men’s Health’s enhanced iPhone edition uses a color- and icon-coded system to help readers navigate the content using standard scrubber and swipe motions.  With the notion that readers tend to interact with content on the iPhone while doing other things, like waiting in line, Bumgarner says a premium was placed on quickly conveying a section’s meaning on the first page. iPhone usage, he says, tends to mimic the flipping and browsing habits readers have with the print magazine. “It’s not a lean-back experience like the iPad. They need a quick flash and dive in and out of the content. We decided to use the full screen and then use a tap to show the text. We wanted to maintain a sense of scale and maximize what you’re getting in the screen space,” he says. Despite the screen limitations, the full content of the magazine is available in the iPhone version—except for the ads. Gillette is the exclusive sponsor for the first enhanced version and Bumgarner says that if there isn’t a single sponsor for the issue, advertising will be limited. “People want to use their phone for everything,” says Bumgarner. “So it’s not as much about replicating as much as finding a way for telling the stories. The tablet is such a great way to showcase content and photography, but from a design point of view this was a much more conceptual challenge to figure out how people were going to use this content.”A pull-out exercise poster that appears in every issue, for example, was recast as frame-by-frame animations for the iPad. On the iPhone version, however, a video shows the content with a fitness editor providing instructions with a voiceover. Again, the iPhone version leverages its take-along characteristic for the gym. “If you’re in the gym, you don’t want to be noodling around using the scrubber on the tablet to go frame by frame,” says Bumgarner. An essay written by Garrison Keillor includes an audio version narrated by the author, with a slideshow featuring images of subjects noted in the essay for further interaction. Plans include a Women’s Health version to launch in October, but Bumgarner is taking a wait-and-see approach on the other Rodale brands. A single issue is priced at $4.99 and a one-year sub is $23.99. Rodale says Men’s Health has sold about 60,000 digital copies, with more than 51,000 digital subscribers. Rodale’s Men’s Health, which launched a PDF replica for the iPhone in June, has significantly stepped up the mobile edition to be, in a sense, a mini-iPad version of the magazine with greater interactivity and navigation. But rather than squeezing the tablet edition into the iPhone format, the mobile version has been reimagined specifically for the small screen. last_img read more

Woman gets clawed by jaguar while trying to take selfie

first_img Random Culture Wellness Now playing: Watch this: The jaguar (not this one) was temporarily removed from the exhibit after the incident. Martin Sachse/ullstein bild via Getty Images A woman survived a close encounter with a jaguar after trying to take a selfie with it at a Phoenix-area zoo on Saturday.The big cat apparently got its claws around the woman’s hand after she crossed a concrete barrier at the Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park and stepped near the cage to take the photo, a witness and authorities told CBS News.Another visitor to the zoo in Litchfield Park, Arizona, reportedly managed to divert the jaguar’s attention by jamming a water bottle into the cage, allowing the woman to pull her hand away. Cellphone video showed her writhing in pain on the ground in the aftermath.The woman later characterized the incident as a “crazy accident” rather than an attack, but didn’t admit to crossing the barrier, CBS noted. Her injuries were reportedly stitched up and she got out of the hospital Sunday, when she also apologized to the zoo owner. When ‘doing it for the gram’ ends tragically Comments 2:09center_img Tags Share your voice 3 The jaguar was removed from the exhibit as the zoo investigates what happened, and officials said it won’t be put down because it wasn’t to blame.The zoo didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment.It’s hardly the first time someone’s been attacked while trying to take a photo with an animal. A woman got too close to a Yellowstone National Park bison in 2015, and an Instagram model got bitten by a shark while swimming with it last year.last_img read more

first_imgAFP/Getty ImagesThe Asian Development Bank (ADB) has reportedly promised to provide a loan of $250 million to help Kerala get back into shape after the 2018 floods. It comes a month after the World Bank sanctioned a $250 million loan for the state.According to reports, the money provided by ADB will be used to provide 24×7 drinking water in cities like Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram.”While the financial assistance from the World Bank and KFW have been completed, the discussions with the ADB are in the final stages,” a government official was quoted as saying by The Times of India.Kerala is expected to make its first withdrawal from the fund by September 28. The loan from World Bank, ADB and KFW, a German agency, is Rs 9,700 crore while the estimated cost of damage incurred by the state during the 2018 floods was Rs 39,000 crore.The water resources department is batting for the funds provided by ADB. They have submitted a proposal for projects worth Rs 700 crore. “The water resources department has submitted a proposal for projects worth Rs 700 crore that include post-flood repair and maintenance of dams, regulators, canals and irrigation structures, replacing energy inefficient pumps and electrical systems in KWA with solar energy-based systems and completion of ongoing KWA schemes,” B Ashok, the Secretary (Water Resources) told TOI.On the other hand, the public works department will fully avail the funds loaned by KFW. The PWD will put the Rs 1,750 crore to widen roads and build bridges.”As many as 55 roads have been selected from Pathanamthitta, Idukki, Alappuzha, Kottayam, Wayanad and Thrissur. These roads will be climate-resilient roads. The DPRs for these have been prepared,” G Kamala Vardhana Rao, the Principal Secretary (PWD) had said.The forest and wildlife department is set to receive Rs 400 crore from the funds. The forests also saw a massive amount of devastation in the floods.
