Flyp Out

Okay, seeing as just about everybody on the Feed is involved with the web, I thought I'd pose this question: What do we think about Flyp?. For those who haven't seen it yet, it's a webmagazine that uses Flash to replicate the magazine experience. You click through and get a nifty page turning effect.

I like it, though I don't think it anything revolutionary. It's still going to depend on the actual content, and like many around here I prefer my interwebs clean and unadorned.

Yea, it's kinda' pretty terrible. I like my websites to be snappy not animate-y. Keeping the web the web not print is key for me else I may not read anything at all! ;)

meh. It's hard to read, which should be the point?

I hate post-literate design.

Pointless. If I want to wait for a page to turn I'll read a real magazine. There's something to be said for a tactile reading experience, but this just seems to take the worst of both worlds. It doesn't take advantage of the things that make the web useful.

That said, it is pretty slickly made and technologically sound. Just... pointless.
