New templates for De Standaard HD on iPad

Last week, Twipe integrated new templates in the popular app De Standaard HD. Editors have now the option to choose from multiple designs to communicate the headlines via the front page. Other templates include a four column page and the ‘eyewitness’ page which contains multiple pictures.

With these changes De Standaard wants to make the iPad experience more in line with a real newspaper reading experience. Together with new templates there’s a now also a ‘jump to’ feature integrated. When tapping on an article on the front page you go directly to the page which displays the full article.

In addition with the above changes, some graphical adaptations have been made to the existing templates. This brings in the whole a better experience for the end consumer. It is clear that this is not the end point in the evolving transition from print to digital.
