The BBC has unveiled its new look news website this morning, with a cleaner design and more social media integration the most obvious changes.
The site has only been live for a few hours, but has already attracted a fair amount of criticism from users. I've been taking a look at the new site...
When the New York Times tried to have Apple pull the plug on the hit iPad news reader, Pulse, I noted that as newspapers like the New York Times attempt to 'save' their businesses, it would be wise of them to figure out how they can work with creative third parties. After all, individuals outside of these organizations may be able to do more for them in some areas than they can currently do for themselves.
But if emails between an online publisher who wanted to license content from Dow Jones is any indication, news organizations may be better at talking about getting paid for their content than they are at actually accepting money from businesses that are ready to pay them.
The App Store is certainly not going to be a panacea for print publishers looking to reverse their fortunes, but The Guardian is proving that getting into the App Store is a worthwhile exercise as the new Guardian iPhone app has been purchased 9,000 times since launch.
At a price point of £2.39, that amounts to over £21,000 in the first 48 hours (before Apple takes its 30% cut). Good enough to give the app the top spot on the list of top UK paid apps, and the second spot on the list of top US paid news apps.
Tis the season to redesign. CNN recently launched a new look for CNN.com, and now news service Reuters has launched a new look for Reuters.com.
But while CNN.com's redesign was all about the content, Reuters' redesign is all about the focus. The new Reuters.com design is all about one thing: making the website a much more attractive destination for consumers.
CNN is one of the world's leading news organizations and it's website is arguably one of its most valuable assets today. In an effort to make it even more valuable, CNN has launched a new design for CNN.com over the weekend for both its U.S. and International versions.
According to Nick Wrenn, Vice President of Digital Services for CNN International, "We had a look on how our users use the site, and put a lot of thought and research behind it". The finding: "Breaking news is our core brand and will continue to have a prominent spot. But we wanted to showcase a lot more of the deep, rich content we have. It was falling off the main page too quickly and people couldn't find it".
Earlier this week I came across a link to Trendsmap.com. On the surface, it's just another program that incorporates a function of Twitter into creating another service. But spend a few minutes with the site and you will quickly realise it is so much more.
Across much of the western world, news organisations are in a fight for their life. Between Google 'stealing' their news and bloggers 'stealing their readers', things are not well in the land of news. The next challenge to news's authority is a 19-year-old kid from the Netherlands.
Brands interested in reaching women online should know that while social networks offer the most reach, blogs have the most influence.
ITN has just launched a news app for the iPhone and iPod Touch, which provides the latest news and sport in a more accessible format.
News organisations in the UK have been pretty slow to adapt their mobile sites or provide apps for smartphones; FT.com has a useful mobile site, with an iPhone app on the way, but others, like the Guardian, need to improve the user experience on mobile.
FT.com has been giving its mobile site a makeover, launching a new version which matches the pink look of the website, and has also been optimised for smartphone users.
I looked at a few mobile newspaper sites recently, and haven't been all that impressed so far, especially with those from UK publishers, so how well does FT.com translate to mobile?
