The Indian Express has launched its app for the iPad, allowing readers to read the e-paper on the Apple handheld. Within days of its launch, it was among the top ten free applications on the Apple iStore on Monday. The reader-friendly app has much more than the regular newspaper app – it also has the day’s e-paper, an electronic version of the print edition.

 

“There’s a growing need, across the world, for news and analysis from India that’s insightful, credible, and trustworthy. That’s what the Express is all about,” said Shekhar Gupta, Editor-in-Chief, The Indian Express. “And we are committed to delivering this content to readers wherever they are, whatever device they use. The Indian Express iPad app is the logical next step after our print, web, mobile and Kindle editions.”

 

The e-paper on the app, the first of its kind, allows readers across the world to read the day’s newspaper on their iPad just the way they would read a printed copy. The e-paper has pages and sections of the paper’s different editions. There is a dedicated photo section that carries swiftly downloadable pictures of the day.

 

Launched by the Express Group’s online division, the app is free. The app also allows readers to browse through live news stories and articles from The Indian Express’s web site too (www.indianexpress.com.) It includes dedicated sections on business, sports, fashion, editorials, opinion pieces and a photogallery.

 

The app integrates easy sharing of content on social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Readers could also forward links of articles they like to their friends through e-mail besides and save the articles for subsequent reading. An app user guide has been put up on the newspaper’s website, too.
