The iPad is an ideal animated photo album, with perfect photo reproduction, and all of us users like very much to look at photos on the screen. Now the first photo magazine app created in Mexico exclusively for the iPad is available and it is noteworthy.

Designed by Daniel Esqueda, the app is attractive, full of visual surprises, and with a vibrant color palette that says Mexico at a glance. Daniel and his editors have also selected some exciting photography to carry us in this visual journey via our iPads.
