Here is an update to our iPad application NewsMix by sobees – and a meaningful one. There has been a great deal of improvements and we implemented new features, the major of which is the possibility to read and share your magazine on the web!
We already offered our NewsMix users the possibility to pick and choose their favorite articles and view them in a separate section. A section which they can now access on the web as well! The website – which uses HTML5 and is optimized for all browsers including mobile devices and iPads – brings NewsMix to a new level: it is the first application which offers aggregation together with semantic enrichment and sharing/read it later functionalities. The website is available at http://newsmix.me. As an example, you can check out François’ NewsMix http://newsmix.me/francois or Vincent’s NewsMix http://newsmix.me/vrithner.
For the webpage, beside the traditional Twitter and/or Facebook sharing options, we partnered with Joliprint (www.joliprint.com) in order to provide PDF magazines as well. That way, any reader will be able to get a PDF magazine directly from the website, whether it be for offline reading of or to keep/share articles.
This new release also includes a larger array of background pictures for your home page, the possibility to update your status on both Twitter and Facebook simultaneously and the addition of thumbnails in the Photos and Videos sections. In addition, we improved the performances of the app as well as the categorization process.
Lastly, the price of the application has been lowered to $ 0.99 as we will move to a subscription model in the next release – happy downloading!
