- Knitscene summer 2011 pdf digital edition review Review by NULL NULL
Content Review: There were so many patterns in this edition of the magazine that I bought the magazine in both it paper and digital versions. I was afraid I would loose the paper copy and I wanted the digital copy just incase. I knit one item from the magazine and plan to knit several more. The patterns felt young and modern but not too modern. They are "wearable" designs, perhaps is the best description. Digital Format Review: Things to note: I am a computer designer/developer/programmer, but not a web programmer or graphic designer per sae. And my interaction with the digital copy have been limited, as I was looking for something in particular. That said, I liked the presentation/interface to the content. You have provide the traditional sequential (page by page) access, access to the content from the table of contents, and index access. I think all these methods of access are important and compliment each other. The index is very well done, presenting the project information together under the projects name is very, very useful and user friendly. The table of content access is a very nice tough too. I guess what I am trying to say its I like the fact that it still feels like a magazine but an augmented magazine. You have improved in the original notion of a magazine not destroyed it, making it both familiar and very usable. Note: I have the pdf version of the magazine not the zinio one. I have not had time to investigate zinio and it app yet and am not sure if I well purchase digital magazine if they require zinio.
