A short while back, I had the opportunity to sit down with the folks at Gear Patrol to check out what awesome stuff they’re cooking up. Come to find out, an iPad app was in the works. The design was extremely unique and was one of the few designs we’ve seen that brought the published content to light in a different way than its browser-friendly counterparts. Top to bottom, GP made everything from the eyes of the reader, giving us as fans the opportunity to really enjoy reading and finally giving us a solid reason to browse the site from an iPad. The app’s seamlessly integrated with Instapaper, Twitter, Facebook, and much more and even features Viewfinder, a section dedicated to videos.
So, here’s what you get — a kick-ass iPad app for reading a site that’s been dishing out some amazing content from day one, exclusive content found only in the GP app, a reason to buy an iPad app, the next must-have app to show off to all your friends, oh and did we mention this is only version 1.0? The fact that it’s free makes your decision that much easier. Here’s the link to iTunes but for more info, head to Gear Patrol. By the way, they’re giving away two iPads right now in case you want to get in on the action. Godspeed.
