AppWatch: A look at what publishers are launching in mobile apps.
Description & Features: Get ready, get set… Future Publishing’s Cycling News HD app is here, a weekly edition geared to lovers of the fast-paced world of international cycling competition. The app offers detailed summaries and stats for weekly road races, event previews, cycling team news, as well as analysis and commentary. A big selling point is the photography—galleries of action shots capturing competition from the French alps to the Australian outback—as well as race routes, maps, and other details. It’s so much like being there, you’ll want to reach for a Power Bar.
“With the launch of Cycling News HD, we’ve created a completely new weekly package of must-have content tailored for international cycling enthusiasts, delivered exclusively to their iPads each and every week,” Richard Schofield, publisher of Cycling News HD, said in a press release.
The app was created with Future Folio, Future’s in-house, Apple-approved app creation software, which the company is licensing to other publishers. PE
