The Indian Express is now available on iPad. This application, was among the top 10 free applications on Apple iStore in November, 2011. The reader-friendly app has much more than the regular newspaper app - it also has the day's e-paper, an electronic version of the print edition.
The application has been designed, developed and managed by Mediology Software, and it leverages the existing content which resides on the Indian Express site.
The e-paper on app, the first of its kind, allows readers across the world to read the day's newspaper on their iPad just the way they would read a printed copy. The e-paper has pages and sections of the paper's different editions. There is a dedicated photo section for all the image galleries, which allow you to cover the news in pictures.
The app integrates easy sharing of content on social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Readers can also forward links of articles they like to their friends through e-mail, besides saving the articles for future reading.
Readers also have the convenience to save their favourite news articles for subsequent reference and reading.
Since the application caches the content locally on the iPad, even if you are not connected to the internet, you can browse through the downloaded content. Thus it's ideal for a journey, or while on the flight, where most times internet access is limited.
