With Twipe we have a hand in 3 out of 8 trends! Mashable recognizes the importance of touch (at Twipe we also add some swipe) and sees the touch trend take a a big amount of future device interfaces. Newspaper & Magazine apps are coming to tablets and tablet publishing is one of the major trends for this and next year.
