The team at Condé Nast around Scott Dadich made a great job transferring the longform experience to that smaller screen. NewYorker’s content adapts greatly to the new formfactor, and has all the features and more:
They introduced persistent objects that don’t move on screen and a drawer that appears on the bottom of the screen that you can tap-open and share your article from.
This is possible because The New Yorker is using HTML for most it’s articles, instead of creating them in InDesign originally.
They even made a great introduction video featuring Lena Dunham and Alex Kaporvsky. This short clip was written by Dunham and Produced by Dadich.
