Readly, the all-you-can-read magazine app for tablets and smartphones, has signed an extensive cooperation agreement with INFOMEDIA. When launched in September 2015, INFOMEDIA'S multi-national network of operators will be able to offer unlimited use of the Readly Apps as a Pay by phone service.
The relationship will initially provide Readly the opportunity to be distributed to the 26 million customers on EE, Orange and T-Moble and leverage the INFOMEDIA Mobile Payments Platform to give users a simple way to access the 1,100 magazine titles that are available through the Readly digital magazine platforms.
This is a ground breaking step in the digital magazine revolution and further illustrates how Readly is working together with other like minded businesses to further develop a growing industry.
Ranj Begley, Readly's UK Managing Director, said; "For Readly, the agreement with INFOMEDIA is another great milestone since our UK launch only 15 months ago. For us and our publishing partners to work with such an innovative and effective partner is a fantastic and unique opportunity."
