Mobile news app first launches with Canada’s The Globe and Mail

Arc Publishing, The Washington Post’s fast-growing software-as-a-service business, now offers a white label native app which gives publishers a low-lift, turnkey solution for launching a mobile app for iOS and Android devices. Canada’s The Globe and Mail is the first publisher to leverage the technology, unveiling their new app this week.

“Arc technology saves newsroom time and effort by working with a publisher’s existing editorial workflow, increasing efficiency and giving them flexibility in how they present their content and tell their stories within the app,” said Scot Gillespie, CTO of The Washington Post. “We designed Arc so that publishers can augment their existing technology with individual products, such as our mobile app. This ensures that they have the critical capabilities to create a rich and seamless mobile experience without the financial and resource demands that typically accompany app development.”

The app incorporates best-in-class features, including a reader experience that’s been battle-tested in The Post’s newsroom, and can support a publisher’s specific requirements for advertising, subscriptions and analytics.
