So, as usual, I have to ask the question.....I downloaded it....where do I find it??? For viewing on my ipad....nothing poped up saying ST..Magazine. Like allmy other little apps I use....Do I need to dig somewhere for it.

 

Yes,  very clueless with all this, so just be patient and help me find it! I am going out of town this weekend and would love to share it with Africa Wannabee Safari Goers

 

 

Thanks!

Only completed one article and a quick scan read of the rest and think it's a very professional layout with some great images from others on here. Bottom line is I'm very impressed.

Assuming you download it by clicking on the Attached File  Screen Shot 2013-10-31 at 08.16.15.pdf   10.79KB   906 downloads link using the Safari web browser, when it finishes downloading the PDF will be opened in Safari as a web page. You can save it to the iBooks library by tapping just above the title to make a toolbar appear. Select Open in iBooks, or Open in... for any other app if you prefer.

Happy to help. My only concern is that there are now 7 different iPads and 7 major versions of iOS with Apple always moving the goalposts. So the screenshots from one iPad may not help with a different model/iOS.

 

Recent versions of Android are a bit easier as they have the Download widget to help find and action downloaded files.

Great effort Matt. The first issue is always the hardest.

Thank you GW for making this readable on the iPad - what a great issue, GW, and all your hard work and creative juices worked. and the idea of using the stunning photos will definitely draw people in.

Next issue will be even more Ipad friendly: I just did not have the time for issue 1 prior to the World Travel Market...

Warning, if any safari camps wish to employ me as a guide, I expect a salary far, far, more commensurate than my actual experience!

I really do appreciate everyone's feedback. Whilst not perfect, it's not bad for a week's work and learning Adobe Indesign at the same time. Issue 2 - bigger, better and easier for me to do.

I think Issue 2 should have an interview from the Founder of ST. Have we ever done that? Would be so cool - for a change someone else will collect the questions, lock the topic ( and please dont answer mid-way) and then questions submitted to you for answers. I think @twaffle @wilddog @kittykat23uk should get going on this. There will be a lot of questions - especially with so many members joining recently in last couple of years and not knowing all the history ( me included ).

Great idea, would be good to hear your views and thought processes on the history and the future of ST.

The only thing of interest about me is the pith. Seriously, we want people to read the magazine...
