MobileWeb launches De Standaard on Android

After the ‘Komen Eten’ app we are launching a second app this week: De Standaard on Android. In 2009, De Standaard was the first Flemish newspaper with an iPhone app. One year later, they were also the first with an iPad app. Both apps developed by MobileWeb counted for 23.000 paid downloads. The Android version is based on the iPhone app and adapts itself to the many different Android mobile phones and tablets.

The app is available for 3,99€. In this package, five newspapers are included for free. Next to the newspaper content, the online news is just a few clicks away. These articles can be shared easily via Twitter, Facebook or mail.

Also subscriptions are integrated: 15€ for a month and 159€ for a full year. Single copy sales are not possible yet due to limitations in the Android Market.

Related to this launch Samsung offers a special promotion. If you have a Samsung phone or tablet you can download the app for free in the Samsung store from march 11th until april 11th.
