Fortune Prepares Fortune500+ Web App

Fortune is taking a different route than most magazines: It’s launching a web app instead of a platform specific app. Called Fortune500+, the web app works across all Internet browsers, unlike apps that are built with something specific in mind, like an iPhone or a tablet.

Ad Age reports that Fortune500+ will launch tomorrow and offer users information on companies, such as where they rank in the 500 listing, and live headlines related to each business.

Who knows if people will actually use this, but maybe because it’s for something so specific, it will be a hit with Fortune readers. It’s worth a try.
