ABOUT THE CLIENT
The newspaper publishing house is a daily English newspaper published in Dubai, UAE. It is one of the oldest and longest-running newspapers focused on news and lifestyle.
The newspaper publishing house has one core objective – to get their stories into the hands of the customers. New technologies have changed the way news is disseminated all over the world. There is a substantial paradigm shift in the way we consume content.
While print is still around, there’s no denying that digital is where publishers need to focus their efforts in the present and for the future. The publishing house endeavors to adopt a multichannel presence – print, desktop, mobile, and app. The mobile app is a huge part of the news delivery system and overall strategy, and most of their audience wants to access the content on mobile rather than on desktop or print.
The newspaper is successful because of its prioritization of giving its audience a great reading experience, for whatever device they are on. The mobile app we designed had a simple and clear homepage, including a navigation menu accessible from the upper left-hand corner. As per the electives chosen, stories are suggested relating to sports, business, politics, and much more. In short, delivering the most relevant results right away. The app also makes it incredibly easy to personalize at various points in the mobile app. The native navigation menu defines for users the main categories they want to see. The native app makes it easier to navigate.
Users can also set their own Push Notification preferences and can segment the notifications by topic, in order to make sure that the notifications they receive are always relevant. The app also allows users to save stories for later reading as bookmarks – especially useful for people in a hurry or on a commute. Saving articles for later means you won’t miss stories you want to read later. When users are logged in, this helps the app to determine which kinds of stories would best be served to the user throughout the rest of the experience.
