Digital platforms have many advantages over paper. One of the most distinct is the ability to measure and getting data back from the reader. Visiolink's Business Intelligence department Visiolab, have measured key parameters in the European ePaper readers' habits for the third year in a row.
Last week, Canadian telecom Telus revealed that the release of the next version of Google's Android, version 7.0 also known as Nougat, was imminent. And sure enough, it was released Monday.
Does publication time influence how many people read your content? On the web the answer, unsurprisingly, is yes. It is even extremely easy to measure the impact. But does release time affect the impact of ePapers?
Digital media is still struggling with revenue despite an increase in the number of paying readers. For the old media companies, the big money is still in print. But how do you make money on the digital media platform that readers are using?
In recent years Flash has been heavily criticized as an insecure technology. Flash-based sites have been hit by numerous attacks, and vulnerabilities have not always been fixed at the same pace they showed up. Rumors have been buzzing for years and now it seems we’ve finally reached the point of no return. Google is cutting Flash support from its Chrome browser.

30%. The price to sell your items on the App Store. Whether it's an app or products you sell through the app. This is neither new nor surprising. And it comes as no surprise that Apple enforce strict regulations and tries to prevent developers and content providers from circumventing them. Still, it caused quite a stir earlier this summer when Apple refused to approve a new version of the Spotify app. Does Spotify have a case and how does it affect other paid content as news platforms?
A few weeks ago I read this story on the dramatic decline in downloads from App Store and Google Play. Tough reading for a guy who's recently taken a seat in a company that primarily delivers apps to news media around the globe. And even more so for the customers who buy our products.
It's mind boggling, bordering on frustrating. What does this mean for us as software developers and suppliers? For our clients? I took a dive into numbers and trends.
Hidden treasures in the archiveMost newspapers date back tens, if not hundreds, of years. Extensive archives date back to first editions, the last words of a loved editor, some of mankind's darkest days and brightest moments. A lot of this history is hidden in dark basement archives, where it only comes out on request by historians or other research scientists.
Basically the archives have no value until someone reaches in to them, views the microfilms or gently turns the century-old pages in their hunt for source material. But what if newspaper archives were instantly accessible and searchable? What if anyone could tap into the riches of history and discover stories and events as seen by those who actually witnessed them?
User surveys tracks behavior and preference tendencies among newspaper readers, and that can result in an improved digital profile, a more determined sale of advertising and a better understanding of the customer’s demand.
Do readers prefer the ePaper or the printed newspaper? How important is the ePaper layout? How often do the readers read the newspaper? How much time do the readers use to read the paper? Which content areas are the readers generally interested in reading about?

Older versions of software and backwards compatibility will always play an important role in software development. No matter how much you push users to upgrade their applications, some readers will be late to adopt the new version. The same is true for Visiolink applications. There are a number of possible explanations for this behavior; however, for now we will focus on when readers adopt the app versions. We will try to provide an overview of the different versions and their user base.
