As of last quarter (announced on June 22nd) Apple had sold 3 million iPads and analysts are predicting as many as 28 million will be sold in 2011. Since we watch technology trends closely—for their own sake as a way to deliver digitally to our customers as well as how these trends influence home furnishings and consumer behaviors—I thought I’d do a post specifically about reading our Trend Album™ reports on the iPad.
The crispness and clarity of iPad makes the reading experience a delight. Being able to “pinch and zoom” in to details within an image is fabulous. All that said, it is the personal and comfortable nature of viewing digital content on this device that makes it a great way to consume a publication like a Trend Album at the office, at home or on the road.
How do you get your Trend Album on to your iPad? Though the geeky among us could probably figure out how to buy and download a Trend Album from our Trend Store, it currently is a hit-or-miss proposition to do so directly on the iPad itself. Instead, we heartily recommend you follow a very simple Apple process that works flawlessly every single time. All you need to know to easily transfer your Trend Album(s) to your iPad can be found on this page, “How to Read Your Trend Album on iPad“.
