Smaller and smaller
For strictly aesthetic reasons, I've never given much thought to LensWork's digital editions on smart phones. Sure, our PDFs can be viewed on an iPhone/etc, but the screen size seems too small to be an important choice. Nonetheless, I've received a number of emails lately from readers who've mentioned that this is precisely how they view our digital versions.
This didn't make much sense to me until I realized that these same people are probably using their iPhone/etc to view photographs they've made with the device. In some regards, the iPhone fan is becoming trained to see images at that scale. I suppose it shouldn't be a surprise that if they view web pages, movies, and their own still images on a 4-5" screen that they would find it perfectly acceptable to view LensWork Extended there, too.
Personally, I'll leave this to younger eyes than mine, but it is interesting how the hardware trends are affecting media consumption norms. Last night I watched a movie on my Nexus 7 tablet with my high-end Sony headphones. I must confess, it was a fantastic experience to have the audio played that way — so engaging that I never once felt uncomfortable with the video experience limited to the 7-inch screen. Visually, it was no different than reading a book at normal viewing distance. I could get very used to it.
