Onswipe to Redefine Publishing and Advertising on Tablet Devices Starting Today
NEW YORK CITY, NY (June 21st, 2011) – Onswipe, a platform for publishing and advertising on tablet devices, is launching today with an iconic group of publishers including Hearst, Slate, and Forbes. The Onswipe platform lets publishers use the scale of their web audience to provide a beautiful app-like experience in the browser. Onswipe is also joined by Iconic advertisers Sprint with Slate and American Express with Marie Claire.
Onswipe provides the ability for publishers to make their content look amazing on tablet devices such as iPad while providing an advertising platform to make publishers boatloads of money. In under three minutes, a publisher can make their existing content provide an app-like experience within the web browser. The Onswipe platform works with publishers of any size, whether their audience consists of 100 people or 1 million.
“Publishers like Marie Claire and Ziff Davis represent the epitome of what we set out to do with Onswipe and the Icon program. We see tablet devices like iPad as bridging the gap between the beauty of print and the scale of the web. We see publishers as partners, and Marie Claire is the example of a perfect partner,” remarked Jason L. Baptiste, CEO and Co-Founder.
“The Onswipe proposition is different from anything else in the marketplace and will provide us with an innovative new touch point for our consumers.
