Rogers Media Tablet Apps Reach One Million Downloads

Rogers Media is Canada’s first major magazine publisher to have every one of its consumer publications on iPad, Android, and BlackBerry.

Thanks to the breadth of this reach, the company this week revealed its tablet magazine apps have reached a combined one million downloads.

“The last few years have seen revolutionary change, innovation and digital growth within the publishing industry. From the start of this digital evolution, we have worked to deliver our premium branded content to our audiences on their preferred platform. Our successes—on the tablet, as indicated by the million downloads, and on other platforms—demonstrate that we are ahead of the curve in giving our audiences what they want,” says Ryan Trotman, Digital Publisher, Rogers Digital Media.

In December 2010, Maclean’s—owned by Rogers Media—became the first major consumer magazine in Canada to create a tablet edition. Since then, the company has published nearly 40 apps, including 22 publications on the iPad, such as Canadian Business and MoneySense.
