Tribune announced that it will roll out an app for the upcoming line of Microsoft-based tablets, Mosaic by Tribune, which allows users to select articles to read by clicking on a moving set of photographs.
Mosaic by Tribune will offer content from all of the publisher’s newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, and the Hartford Courant, and users can add feeds from blogs, Twitter, or other online sources. The app will be available free-of-charge, and it will contain higher-resolution advertising.
Tribune co-president Eddy Hartenstein said:
It’s a very different, visual way for readers to sort through and personalize how they want to see news delivered. You just touch it and it blossoms.
