MobileWeb develops De Standaard iPhone app, first paying news app in Benelux

De Standaard has launched its own mobile application for the iPhone. This app was developed by MobileWeb.be, Belgian specialist in SMS and mobile internet solutions. MobileWeb.be was previously also responsible for the creation of the successful mobile site m.standaard.be.

The app of De Standaard, now available in the Apple App Store, is the first paying iPhone news application in the Benelux. After only 1 day, the app already ranks first of the paying apps in the App Store.

De Standaard, pioneer in the European mobile media landscape
Corelio strongly believes in the mobile platform. After launching specific mobile sites for De Standaard and Het Nieuwsblad in 2008, this media group now also launches an iPhone app.

The iPhone app of De Standaard has the advantage that one can download the many news articles onto the mobile device and then read them in offline mode. An Internet connection is only required to update with new news items. The app also offers lifestyle news, opinions, photo wall browsing and a TV guide. The app can be personalized, resulting in more possibilities and a better user experience.

The app of De Standaard can now be bought in the Apple App Store for € 3,99. This makes it the first paying iPhone news app in the Benelux. The paying aspect of the iPhone app means a new source of revenues for a media company like Corelio. This makes the company one of the pioneers in the European media landscape.
