Magazines Look Terrible on The New iPad

Over the past several days, complaints about how bad magazines look on the iPad have been rolling in. The reason, according to Mashable, is that the older magazine apps simply weren’t built to handle the new iPad’s high resolution “retina display,” so everything looks blurry.

Publishers are now racing to update the apps so that they’re compatible with the technology, but there are drawbacks: the new apps will be significantly larger files, which means longer download times and less memory available for other things.

For new iPad owners who want to read magazines, it’s going to be a hard knock life.
