Discover the HUMO iPad App with its brand new Social TV Companion

Today, HUMO released its long anticipated iPad app. The app was developed on the MobileWeb Mobile Publishing Platform.

Download the app now for free in the App Store!

The popular magazine comes to the Apple tablet with a distinct features set, containing three sections:

–          Media Screen, covering the best of HUMO

–          Social TV, your social TV companion

–          Magazine, your HUMO on iPad

After opening the app, you will land on the Media Screen containing the best of Humo’s website articles, with a focus on the TV content. All articles are brought together under topics such as TVreviews, Actua and Video. When tapping on one of them, a flipreader opens which makes it very easy to consume. Moreover, every article can be shared via facebook, twitter or email; recommended articles appear on the right side of the screen. Humo fans will also enjoy the typical content Humo stands for such as ‘Uitlaat’ and ‘Cartoons’.

In the brand new Social TV Guide, HUMO reinvents itself on the iPad. With the Humo app at your fingertips you can discuss, comment and criticize with other peers who are watching the same programs. Also let your twitter and Facebook followers know what you are watching so that they can join you. Very original is the frameset that has been developed to browse through TV programs. Next to the TV guide you will find ‘now on TV’, ‘Popular programs’ and ‘Humo’s selection’ which enables you to discover new interesting programs.

Finally, a Humo app wouldn’t be a Humo app without the Magazine. The app offers the complete magazine in a smooth high quality pdf . Subscribers of the paper magazine can download the iPad version for free, non-subscribers can buy the digital magazine for 2,39€.

After launching De Standaard and NRC Handelsblad, another publisher benefits from MobileWeb’s Publishing Platform to get their content on the tablet. If you wish to receive more information about the MobileWeb Publishing Platform and services, please send a mail to contact@mobileweb.be.

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.

MobileWeb launches iPad app ‘Second Screen – Come Dine With Me’ (Tweede Scherm – Komen Eten) for SBS Belgium.

MobileWeb is proud to announce the launch of the iPad app of Tweede Scherm – Komen Eten (‘Come Dine With Me’ international TV format).

The Second Screen social TV iPad app offers viewers an interactive experience while watching television. First, it gives the viewer additional background information, such as pictures, bios, related articles. Secondly, they can participate to the show: they can rate other candidates with regards to food and atmosphere. Finally and one of the key elements of this innovative iPad app is the interactivity component: viewers are able to comment and chat with each other on what they see, feel and hear. At the same time the Twitter and Facebook conversations are integrated as well. ‘Komen Eten’ is the first format on ‘Tweede Scherm’, other formats and platforms will follow.

 

This ‘social TV’ application is the first in its kind in Belgium, if not in Europe. Last year ABC was one of the first TV broadcasters who started experimenting with second screen applications. Also other American programs and TV stations followed. However, in Europe the trend hasn’t broke through (yet), although experts expect the next few months to be the turning point for Social TV. David Rowan, the Editor of Wired magazine has named Social TV at number three of six in his peek into 2011 and what tech trends to expect to get traction. TV is inherently social – and Social Media is a conduit. Put them together in a workable, ergonomic way and the convergence will have impact.

 

This innovative application has been developed in a couple of weeks time. The development cycle has been short as the application was developed on the MobileWeb Mobile Publishing platform. This platform offers media companies and publishers a fast track to get their content on a variety of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets).
