What Is an App?

What is an app? Thousands of people go to Google every day hoping to answer that question.

When we launched eBookNewser, eBooks made up a bare fraction of the publishing industry. Now, digital books have become a mainstream part of the writing world. So we decided it was time for the eBookNewser blog to evolve. We will continue to break digital book and publishing app news, but our focus has expanded to cover the entire app space.

What is an app? Here at AppNewser, we define apps as a broad set of applications that media professionals use in their digital lives. We will cover the complete world of apps: sharing news about smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices that use apps; highlighting the new apps flourishing in social networks like Facebook, Twitter or Spotify; tracking the most popular Android and iOS apps; and exploring the booming world of social gaming apps.

AppNewser will help guide media professionals through this new transition to apps, just like eBookNewser guided readers through the eBooks revolution. If you only want to read our eBook and publishing coverage, you can bookmark this link for publishing-specific news.
