French publication Le Monde has just released a bevy of new mobile applications, including for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
The app is the culmination of a major project on which 25 people worked and attempts to address two diverging goals – offering the news in real time, but also providing deep background coverage.
The app now provides a Direct tab, which will offer real-time updates by editors around the world. A second tab called Headlines will make sure readers are up to date with essentials, while story streams will offer more detailed, curated and organized articles allowing readers to take a deep dive into the news.
The simultaneous release on iOS, Android and Windows Phone is a sign that, in Europe at least, the OS is increasingly being seen as a first class citizen, which should bode well for the future.
Download the app from the Windows Phone Store here.
