G+J International launches GEO iPad application

Hamburg, 06 July 2010 –

The reportage magazine GEO is launching a GEO iPad selection based on its English-language edition – a monthly selection of three reports from the current international print magazine in a multimedia format for the Apple iPad. The first issue will appear in early July and is priced at 2.49 EUR in the AppStore.

The application was developed by G+J International Brands and Licenses in cooperation with the software vendor Mobilinga GmbH of Bremen.

They also each contain further information via web links added by the editorial team, which the readers themselves can add to or customize. In addition, readers can also post comments and notes on each page.

The features magazine GEO is Gruner + Jahr's most international magazine brand: besides Germany, Austria and Switzerland, local editions are currently published in Brazil, Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, India, Italy, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey and Hungary.
