Rappler releases iOS app
MANILA, Philippines (2nd UPDATE) - The wait is over. You can now get the Rappler experience on your iOS-powered device.
Today, February 15, we're releasing the official Rappler app for iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads running iOS 5.1.1 and higher. It is available as a free download on the iTunes App Store.
With the Rappler app for iOS you can read Rappler stories; watch our newscast, web shows, and other videos; vote on our Mood Meter and help crowdsource the mood of the day; share stories with your community on social media, and submit tips, stories, and photos.
According to Rappler CEO Maria Ressa, while the app is great for consuming and sharing Rappler content, "it is also about creating a community that sees a better future ahead and isn't afraid to demand and work for it." Over the course of the next few months you will see more and more of that functionality built into the app.
Hours after it was released the Rappler app climbed to the top of the Philippines iTunes App Store's bestselling apps list. As of posting, it is now the bestselling news app and is among the Top 50 bestselling free apps on the Philippines iTunes App Store.
Rappler is also working on an Android version of the app set for a release on a later date.
