Cyclepedia iPad App Shows 100 Iconic Bicycles, Blows Minds

This is why you bought (or will buy) an iPad. Heuristic Media’s Cyclepedia App takes their print volume and does everything a book like this should do when it goes digital.

Featuring 100 iconic bicycles, it lets you zoom, pan and rotate them 360º. It shows origin, specs and details and it does it all with a polished interface that’s simply gorgeous. It also features films, original advertising, links, engineering drawings and still photos. Folding bikes feature swipable folding animations, and many include original owners manuals and more.

Get it on iTunes for $9.99, which is a real bargain considering the non clicky-flicky print book is about $23. Now you know what to do with those iTunes gift cards you find in your stocking! Screenshots after the break…

I have the book and it is one of my most prized possessions, truly beautiful.
The App is great too and I’ve discovered different ways at looking at the bikes but the book is by far and the best way to own this collection.
It has been very interesting though to see how the two compare especially given how excellent the implementation of the App is. They have done an amazing job on it but when it comes down to it print is definitely not going to die out.
