Hey there, time traveller!

If you are an iPad owner who frequently checks the app store for Winnipeg content, you have likely already noticed the new trial version of the iPad E-Edition that we “soft-launched” last week.

The e-edition format allows you to view the print edition of the paper in a scalable, easy to navigate manner. We wanted to offer a trial version to get our product out there and to gain feedback on this version before a full launch. Well, as it turns out, version 1.0 was a “little buggy” as early adopters pointed out on iTunes and in blog posts.

While we continue to debug and tweak that version, we are also working in the background to create a more robust, dynamic app for tablets of all stripes going forward. This app will feature functionality you’ve likely become accustomed to on other top media sites: embedded video, slideshows, linked content, etc.

This work is part of a larger plan to develop a complete package of multimedia delivery channels to ensure you get the content you want in the format you prefer.

Stay tuned for more details in the space as we progress on the development side.
