In this context, having an iPad app seemed logical for Kinetik and for its users, its CEO Raul Moreno tells us: “In the last 6 months we have seen in our analytics an increasing number of users using Kinetik for iPhone on an iPad, so we decided it was time to expand into different platforms.” As a matter of fact, there’s more coming, as Kinetik now plans to launch its Android app in October.
As the iPhone and web versions, the iPad app is entirely free, and gives recommendations from your friends, peers, the press and Apple itself. Here’s what Kinetik’s iPad home page looks like when its menu is displayed:
You can also choose to display individual user profiles and app descriptions, while keeping other content in the background.
As you can see, these screenshots look fairly different from the iPhone version. Instead of a single image column, the iPad app displays multiple apps and related images on its home page to make the most of the tablet’s larger screen.
Update: Kinetik has just let us know that the app will only be available on September 11.
