The new revamped IOL App is a result of feedback from numerous user groups, user experience specialists and analytics gathered from how the current users utilise certain features.
The key focus areas of the new app has been to provide our users with immediate access to IOL's breaking news streams, whilst maintaining the traditional edition based newspaper title's in depth curated editorial packages.
Going digital is seen as a transitional journey for the Independent Media group that has over 20 newspaper brands, where learnings are applied to ensure our users can expect innovation and also quality experiences when utilising our digital offerings.
There is a lot of free news content, coupled with an option to subscribe to more in depth reporting in a traditional editorial sense across regional and national brands such as the Cape Times, Cape Argus, The Star, Daily News, Pretoria News, The Sunday Independent, Sunday Tribune, DFA, POST, Daily Voice, The Mercury, Isolezwe, and many more.
We are continuously working to improve your reading experience so let us know by providing feedback either on the Play store or via our www.myindependent.co.za.
We believe that news should be affordable and available to everyone, by launching this digital news app platform we hope to reach more people and provide them with professional and high quality journalism.
