NCE’s cutting edge iPad app launches this week, bringing you more news, more images and more technical detail, when and where you want it.

With support from our launch partner Vinci Construction UK and Vinci Construction Grands Projets, its NCE but paperless and with more interaction.

The app will be free to download from the Apple store in the next few days.

Available immediately will be this week’s NCE.

  • Apologies, but a few last minute glitches and gremlins needed ironing out. As you see, the App is now in the Apple store and is freely downloadable. Currently live is the 10 February issue - the 17 February issue will be going live this afternoon. Apologies for the delay!

  • I have downloaded the App and so far so good. However I have a couple of questions.

    1. Will it continue to be free to those who subsribe to NCE either directly or as a result of ICE membership, after the initial promotional period?

    2. I am a big fan of recieiving this sort of publication electronically but has any work been done on how sustainable it is? e.g. from a baseline point of view I recieve a paper version and an ipad version by simple inspection that can not be as efficient as just the paper version.

  • For those of us without access to ipads (I guess the majority) why was the investment/contribution from vinci not directed towards a digital edition, which has been available in the past on odd occasions. Surely a more "sustainable" approach as it would hit a wider target? (or even an android app to suit my tablet!).

  • My curiosities are similar to David Hobson's ^^. Why is the NCE advertising this iPad app all over the place? Not to mention Anthony's editorials... I know the iPad is all "modern" and "cool" but most people don't own them. If you're going to develop a device specific app... at least do it on the worlds largest smartphone (and now tablet) platform - Android. Then I can read it ;)

    Even better, develop a HTML5 based website or app so it can be completely cross platform, like this:
    http://www.nytimes.com/chrome/
    (might need Google Chrome)

  • Matthew<br/>NCE is the first magazine in the built environment sector of offer an iPad specific version. My goal was to create an electronic product which is a true magazine, browsable experience and so distinct from our existing on-line, information-seeking offering. <br/>Why iPad? Well, the iPad is the benchmark tablet and a very fast growing platform. While it is true that not everyone has one, it is certainlystill the market leader and so a logical place for us to start.<br/>It may well be that as we go on the service may expand to Android - we have the capability but it is simply a matter of cost and time each week versus demand. <br/>And to be honest this is very much the start i hope. I have no idea how this form of publishing will develop, if it will become more popular or even the norm eventually or tomorrow. <br/>All I can say is that NCE is there, working, investing, learning and attempting to keep ourselves and our readers at the vanguard.<br/>All feedback is welcomed.<br/>Antony Oliver, editor, NCE<br/>

  • Dear David and Matthew,

    Maybe a lot of people don't have iPad (yet?), but there are also a lot of people who own one and enjoy the good job done by NCE. And the good news is that they are also working on a new Mobile version of their website.
    Hope that helps,
    Kind regards,

    CM

  • The app does not appear in the app store under either NCE or EMAP. What is it called? Why not issue a version for iPhone to allow more members access.

  • Alan<br/>The NCE iPad app is certainly available from the Appstore. Download it for free and there are five issues to choose from with lots of iPad specific features and slide shows.<br/>We haven't produced an iPhone version in the same way as firstly, the screen is just too small to really make it a readable magazine experience and besides, our new smart phone web service is coming along very soon. <br/>Best wishes<br/>Antony Oliver, editor, NCE
