I was searching around on the IPAD and found a Milepost App. Once you install the free app, you can download a preview version of the 2012 Milepost guide, or pay $19.99 for the full version. I've been waiting for a Kindle or ibook version, this is just as good.
I wouldn't think it would be as enjoyable to constantly refer to while driving along the highways. There are many maps in the book and viewing them in print would be easier on the ole' eyes in my opinion. Also, we made notes in the book and referred back to pages quite often. It was opened and referred to constantly as we drove. Just our opinion.....

Will have to check this out. A Milepost tied to a computer/tablet would be great, since there are so few actual original Mileposts remaining. Most trips I have two copies with me, one up front and one in the camper. One copy I try to keep somewhat clean for my collection of them. I have somewhere around 50 editions going back to the early 50s. The second copy gets c ut up, marked up, and generally abused.
If the MP crew could tie the guide to the smart device's GPS would be super.

While I love most of the reading apps, I agree that the Milepost is one that would be best read in hard copy. You will do a lot of going back/forth from various landmarks, pages, locations, checking distances, references, sights, etc., and that would be very difficult, if not impossible, on a tablet.
Can't speak to an IPAD version - but we did like the digital version on our laptop - being able to use a search function for pre-planning was great - but the in-car real-time use was still the hard-copy version.

I guess I'm old-fashioned enough that I still prefer the hard copy version of just about any book. As others have said, your copy of the MP will be dog-eared, scribbled on, and highlighted throughout by the time you get through your trip. Take a supply of stick-on page markers or small post-it notes to mark pages as you go. When you buy the hard copy, you get a password to download a free electronic copy to your laptop or computer. I used the electronic copy to print out the maps, then bound them into their own map book using plastic comb binders. That book of maps stayed in easy arm's reach for the entire journey.
