Montpellier, France – Aquafadas, innovative developer of digital publishing solutions, announced that the French division of Metronews, the largest international newspaper in the world, today released a digital version of its free daily newspaper created using the Aquafadas Digital Publishing System. The new app, Metronews: le journal, is available now in the Apple Kiosk for viewing on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Readers are able to subscribe for free to any of the seven local editions of Metronews France – Paris, Marseille, Lyon, Toulouse, Nice-Cannes, Lille or Nantes – which will then be delivered to their device each weekday before 7am.
From their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, readers will be able to view up to 15 back issues of the paper. Leveraging Aquafadas’ award-winning digital publishing technology, each French local edition is converted automatically from the print PDF, requiring very little additional work to achieve this technical feat and providing immense value to both Metronews France and its readers.
