What you can see here is an accelerated consumption of content from our iPhone and iPadusers since 2009. The reason for this is packaging. You read a newspaper cover to cover, a website you never read cover to cover but an app can be read cover to cover. It gives you the feeling that if you read all this you are up to date. There is an opportunity to improve brand recall by buying frequency on these devices. Source: Omniture SiteCatalyst

Long Tail Mobile (2008) If you want to reach users with the older handsets then this is the place to be. This is our “Lite site” due to the data charges associated with these devices and the speed at which they can load content. It is text heavy and quite basic in its appearance.

By this point the market had caught up to us and the application rush was in full flight. Next Generation Mobile SiteThe NGM site was built for your smartphones – iPhones and Galaxies for example and is one of the main drivers of traffic for our mobile platforms. It’s a full HTML5 site. iPad appWe launched our iPad application in July of 2010 and received a medal at the Asian Digital Media Awards for our efforts. We were recognised by the International society of publication designers and the Asia Pacific newspaper association and we were even featured in Apples TVC promoting the iPad. I guess you could say we are quite proud of this one. iPhone appOur iPhone application was well received by the market when it was released in April last year. It is image rich and includes some nice features like swiping and the customization of the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. The iPhone app has received 195,000 downloads to date.
