    I am just wondering what magazines, catalogs, comics or books people are reading on their iOS Device, and do you read more on your iOS device now then you were reading before?

    I find that since I always have my device with me I tend to read more of the content I have downloaded.

    Books, mostly non-fiction. Probably the last 30 books I've read were in iBooks and the Kindle app on my iPhone.

    Yep I do. There was an article out a couple days ago that stated people over 50 read faster on tablets than books.

    Interesting...any idea where you saw that? I'd like to read their correlation and causation on that one. (I do think people in general, regardless of age, read faster on e-readers of any type, but that's based on anecdotal evidence.)

    Anyway, on topic--I read EVERYTHING on my iPad and have for almost eighteen months now. If I don't have the iPad on me, I'll read on the phone; the Kindle app syncs perfectly between the two, and with my Kindle on the increasingly rare times I actually use that device anymore. With the iPhone's retina screen being so easy to read on, toting the Kindle around became less of a necessity.

    But to me, content like magazines and graphic novels really aren't a good fit for the iPhone. The screen size just isn't really adequate. They're typically gorgeous on the iPad, though.

    I've has my iPad since day 1 and the first book I read was Steve Jobs's biography last month. Since then I've downloaded lots of books and love reading on it. I never thought I would. I also never thought I'd love reading them on my iPhone. I seem to read slot faster on the iPhone since I'm turning the pages quicker. I also read comics through the Marvel app and ComicZeal. I haven't gotten into magazines yet, but I hope to when a few I actually read are in there.
