For Brides-to-Be: The digital version of Brides magazine is now available for download from the App Store.  The digital version comes with all kinds of interactive features for excited brides-to-be, like bridal fashion show videos, digital shopping guides, and direct links to iTunes for individual songs and “BRIDES playlists,” oh and “mood videos” (not sure what those are). In case you brides need some more product placement, the app is introduced by the cast of Bridesmaids (in theaters now).

Also, after the buzz at Google I/O, the Galaxy may become much more popular in the near future, which would attract more app developers. Will it outshine the iPad? No, probably not, but it may catch up to it. TechCrunch
