The Stage – Now Available on the iPhone & iPad!17/6/2013
The leading weekly newspaper for the entertainment industry is now available to download from the App Store!
The Stage features the latest theatre news, reviews and opinions from the entertainment world. Readers are able to subscribe to the app to receive weekly issues before the newspaper even hits the shops. Furthermore, readers will have the ability to download articles so that they can read them offline and they will also be able to access recent editions too. The Stage’s app features integrated videos and social sharing options for an enhanced user experience.
Grant Attwell, Head of Marketing at The Stage explained, "The Stage was first published in 1880 and if we have any ambitions to keep publishing we need to be where our readers migrate to. With a third of our online audience now viewing our website via an iPad or iPhone the need for us to produce a unique platform for these devices became perfectly clear. Having a Stage newspaper App not only allows us to cater for the needs of our current readers but also opens up to a new international audience who can read the weekly newspaper on the day it has been published. Everyone at The Stage is very excited about the launch of the new app and look forward to gaining a new global readership base."

Apple Announce Details of iOS 711/6/2013
Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is currently taking place in San Francisco, and last night their CEO, Tim Cook, took the opportunity to announce details of software updates and an overhaul of their mobile operating system during a keynote address… "the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of iPhone in 2007".
Now that we’ve had time to digest their announcements and install the developer release on to our devices, we’ve summarised some of the details below…
- iOS 7 will receive a design overhaul, heavily influenced by Sir Jonathan Ive and his clean-cut, 2 dimensional designs. We’ll see a shift away from ‘textured’ icons and a move towards a new ‘clean and flat’ interface. All of those wooden, material and alloy surfaces have been replaced
- We’ll see the introduction of iTunes Radio – this will offer users themed stations which can be tailored to their iTunes listening history with the ability to purchase any songs directly
- The camera will be completely re-designed with more filters and Instagram-sized auto-cropping
- The notification centre has been re-designed to be less intrusive yet still having the ability to display more information at the flick of a finger
- Multitasking has been improved with a familiar looking "cards" style system to easily swipe between and close open applications
The update will be available in the autumn…we’re looking forward to it!
