Another N°1 app

StuBru app reached N° 1 free app in the Belgian iTunes Store after just 1 day!

Reviews (Dutch):

  • iPhone app van @StuBru is een topper ! Meteen multitask ondersteunig. Twitteren en StuBru op de achtergrond. #omdathetkan
  • Nieuw: Studio Brussel heeft een IPhone app. Nu nog een goeie roadtest bij een treinreis of zo… #StuBru.
  • eindelijk… de stubru app die op geen enkele ipod touch/iphone/ipad mag ontbreken 😉 werkt perfect! Great work 😉
  • Zeer mooie applicatie, letterlijk dan. Volledig geoptimaliseerd voor het nieuwe Retina display. Makkelijk te navigeren en zeker voldoende lees- en kijkmateriaal.

MobileWeb develops an iPhone/Android application for StuBru

Studio Brussel (StuBru) launches today his new mobile application developed by MobileWeb.

You can find more information on the website of stubru

The iPhone application is already in the App Store. You can find the Android application later today in the Android Market.

VRT launches beta version of DeRedactie & Sporza Mobile

Yesterday, the flemish VRT launched the beta version of the mobile site for their news site DeRedactie and the sports section Sporza.  After the launch of De Standaard Mobile, this is the second large mobile news initiative in Belgium. You can visit these beta versions at m.beta.deredactie.be and m.beta.sporza.be.

DeRedactie mobile on an Apple iPhone

The mobile internet site of De Redactie visualizes on its first page the latest headlines.  A drop-down menu leads to other news articles in the sections politics, economy, culture & media and the regional sections.  Interesting feature is that you can listen to the latest news bulletin and the latest newspaper headlines.  Too bad this feature is hidden so deep in the drop-down menu.

Sports news is separated into Sporza Mobile, but can be reached via the top navigation of DeRedactie Mobile.  Same concept there: latest headlines and pictures on the first page, other sections in the dropdown menu.

DeRedactie mobile also contains the latest updates on weather and traffic info in pure text form.   The weather map and the traffic jam map (filekaart) that are visualized on the website have disappeared on the mobile version.
