Mining Weekly launches international edition for iPad


South Africa-based print and online publisher Creamer Media has launched a new international edition of Mining Weekly for the iPad.


Creamer Media CEO Kenneth Creamer says the international edition consists of a weekly roundup of the most newsworthy articles published on miningweekly.com.


“Over the past two years we have published separate email editions of miningweekly.com for three regions, namely for the Americas, Australasia and Africa and Europe,” says Creamer. “The new international edition packages the top mining and related stories from each of these regions into one edition.”


“It will appear in a magazine-type format and the dedicated online reporters in Johannesburg, Perth and Toronto will hand-pick the week’s most important news items from each region for inclusion.


“Millions of people across the world are now using the iPad to get their news. People are changing their reading habits and ways of accessing information and there is a move by large magazine titles, such as Reader’s Digest and National Geographic, for example, to complement their print titles with iPad editions,” says Creamer.


“The miningweekly.com international edition for iPad takes cognizance of this trend and allows us to reach a far-reaching global audience in a very efficient manner. In time we will expand this content offering to other tablet devices.”


Creamer explains that there were some technological challenges associated with ensuring its content design was compatible with the iPad but that these were quickly overcome. The weekly editions can be downloaded from within the Mining Weekly International application that is freely available in the Apple iTunes store.


“We are making the very best use of Apple’s e-commerce technology and are very confident that those interested in the mining industry across the world will see the benefit of reading Mining Weekly’s International edition for iPad. Obviously, the edition will also open up new advertising opportunities for those wishing to market their products and services to the rapidly growing number of iPad-reading business executives.”
