Toronto’s Polar Mobile has created mobile apps for well-known brands including Sports Illustrated, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Time magazine. It has advice for other businesses thinking of developing a mobile app – do it.
Not only will a mobile app help connect you to your audience in a new and more personal way, it will actually broaden your audience and find you new users. Case in point, Transcontinental’s The Hockey News, a 60-year-old magazine has circulation of 100,000 in Canada and the U.S., and have 300,000 readers per month online. But its mobile application has reached 1 million users in 65 countries, many of them in Eastern Europe, the biggest hockey hub outside of Canada.
