A CASE STUDY:
HOME SCREEN DELIVERY FOR PUBLISHERS
Bauer Media is the world’s largest distributor of newsstand
magazines. Their InTouchWeekly Android app uses Mobile Posse’
s Home Screen Delivery platform to offer its readers the ability to
receive InTouch Weekly’s full interactive editorial delivered to the
home screen of their mobile device (see right image).
At install, users can choose to pick a time each day when InTouch
Weekly web-based content would “float up” to be what the user
would see when they woke their phones (see left image).
