Magazine Journalism to Tablets: An analysis of the iPad app's of the magazines Wired and Katachi

By Marcelo Freire.

Magazine Journalism to Tablets discusses the migration process of magazines for mobile devices. To this end, it tries to identify the "DNA" of this type of publication, identifying what passes through it to a digital means and the changes caused by being in this new environment. By analyzing a native publication of the tablets’ environment and an adapted one, respectively Katachi and Wired, the comparison allows the author to construct a definition of digital magazines and the proposition of a typology. Set in the transmedia production scenario, the work seeks to update discussions and look over the content and practices of digital communication in the present tense, contextualizing it as a gradual construction and influenced by devices, by the digital environment and by the uses that are made of them.
