Tammy Mendoza: "We fell in love with this format the minute we laid our eyes on it."
PageSuite’s latest app CMS, PageSuite Live, enables them to utilise their existing content feeds for a multi-platform publishing strategy.
Selected editorial content feeds are input into the app directly from The Philippine STAR’s website and then divided into sections before being laid out in
the unique template tool. Publishers then have the ability to re-order the page flow within the app or edit live content if headlines need amending or
images need updating.
Tammy Mendoza, Philippine Star VP-Operations said, “We fell in love with this format the minute we laid our eyes on it and are quite happy to deliver the
new PS Live Philippine Star app to our readers. This app is the best of both worlds as it lets readers access the replica edition as well as article feeds
that are easy to read in one go.”
To access content within the app, readers have the option to purchase a 7-day, 1-month, 2-month, 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription. All subscriptions
come with a 14 day trial enabling readers to access the Digital Edition and live feed content.
The Philippine STAR’s new feed-driven app includes the PDF replica edition for readers who prefer to read the news in the traditional format. This can be
downloaded and then content can be accessed offline.
The Philippine STAR is the flagship title of the country’s largest media enterprise, the STAR Group. It provides readers with the latest news and
entertainment stories from across the country. You can currently download the new app for iPad and iPhone devices.
