The iOS and Android app versions are also available for people using tablets and smartphones.
Paul Winston, Associate Publisher and Online General Manager for Business Insurance, said, Our readers around the world can now experience the interactive digital edition of Business Insurance anywhere, on virtually any device, including their laptops. With these apps we can bring insights to life like never before through our magazine content enhanced with interactive charts, graphics, video, audio, and photo slideshows. Its a brand new way to see Business Insurance. We not only are able to better serve our readership with the new apps, but also will provide our advertisers with new opportunities to engage with our readers within the apps.
App Studio: Create Once, Publish Many
Before launching the new iOS, Android, and Web apps, Business Insurance created a digital replica app for the iTunes Store, which was a PDF with page flip functionality. Winston said, It looked gorgeous and faithfully reproduced the printed page, but it was pretty flat. It wasnt exciting.
