To bring content from publishers in fifty countries to the iPad
Online PR News – 09-February-2010 – – As soon as consumers lay their hands on Apple’s game-changing “iPad”, they are going to be hungry for content. And, the news industry is itching to fulfill this hunger while it waits for its own “iPod” moment that changed the music industry forever.
Pressmart, a leading print-to-online content publishing service, today announced its support for the Apple iPad. Publishers from over 50 countries use Pressmart service to deliver content to their subscribers in Same-as-Print Online Editions, Web2.0 Interactive Community-Ready Websites, Custom-Branded Mobile Apps and eReaders. Pressmart already supports all major eReader devices like Kindle, Sony, Nook and Cool-er.
Publishers will now be able to use Pressmart’s Software-as-a-Service platform to convert and distribute their print publications in an iPad ready format and Custom Branded Apps. It opens up Publishers to the massive content appetite that iPad will offer.
