Newspaper publishers are raving about Apple Newsstand, saying they have seen a drastic increase in app downloads since its Oct. 12 launch.
(Editor & Publisher 3/1/2012)
Many newspapers are diving into the app business, releasing versions for iPhone and iPad, Android, Kindle and/or BlackBerry. Some publishers are taking a wait-and-see approach, while others want to get the product out the door as soon as possible. Some have in-house programming teams, while others are opting for third-party vendors. Some are focusing on PDF replicas, while others are zoning in on breaking news updates. And some have a combination of the two. The bottom line is, when weighing whether to aunch apps — or which ones to release — each newspaper market is different and needs specific products depending on its audience.
