a technologically advanced international network of online auto racing
content with operations in 15 countries, today announced the expansion
of its media brand with the launch of an all-new mobile publishing
platform for iPhone users – Motorsport.com News Digest.
“This brand new Motorsport.com News Digest iOS app is part of our
larger focus on innovation and technology and recognizes the important
role that mobile and social media play in our expanding motorsports
digital platform,” said Eric Gilbert, vice president of operations,
“Our Motorsport.com web platform being responsive and adapting perfectly
to any device, it was important for us to develop an app that goes
beyond the standard mobile content browsing,” added Gilbert. “We wanted
something with features that are unique and can only be found in an
application, such as custom notifications.
“The Motorsport.com News Digest is all this and more: it packages and
pushes news twice daily, in the morning and in the afternoon. We target
the audience that has a busy lifestyle and does not necessarily have
time to browse Motorsport.com online every day or hour, but yet wants
its daily dose of racing news.
“This app is the first one of many that will be released in 2016, each
of them focusing on a specific experience and with their own features,”
The Motorsport.com News Digest offers two daily news roundups delivered
in the morning and evening. The need-to-know, quick form news service
from its world-class editors and writers will package up the top
editorial content from Formula One, NASCAR, Moto GP, IndyCar, World
Endurance Championship, IMSA and all other major forms of motor sports.
The app is available in multiple languages including: English, French,
Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, German, Dutch, Chinese and Arabic.
Developed by its in-house Motorsport
Network technology team, Motorsport.com News Digest app is a
feature-rich, interactive environment, which includes motorsports news,
embedded videos, photo galleries and more.
The mobile app can be downloaded via the iOS Apple Store (https://itunes.apple.com)
and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch systems, iOS 9.0 or
later. It will be available for Android on Google Play in January 2016.
Formed in 1994, Motorsport.com is a technologically advanced
international network of online motorsports content featuring
world-class digital distribution, video and interactive multimedia
worldwide with news bureaus in 15 countries in 11 different languages,
24 hours a day, seven days a week.
