Since its start almost two years ago Readly has offered digital reading of a growing portfolio of national and international magazines. Today the service offers unlimited reading of close to 1 000 titles and 12 000 issues for a low fixed monthly price. Now the app is also available in a Windows Phone version, complementing the existing versions for iOS (Apple), Android, Windows 8.1 and Kindle Fire.
- We want to make digital magazine reading available to as many people as possible, says Per Hellberg, CEO of Readly International. Our “all-you-can-eat” subscription model with full access at a fixed low monthly cost is the basis for this, but at the same time it is important for us to be present on all major platforms and create partnerships in order to extend our reach. Introducing a Windows Phone version of the app in cooperation with Microsoft is a good example of this.
-We continue to see considerable interest in Windows Phone among both consumers and developers. The fact that Readly now makes its service available on Windows Phone is yet another confirmation of that, and we are extremely pleased to be able to include Readly in our range of apps, says Thomas Floberg, Business Group Lead for Windows and Surface in Sweden.
