The Verge targets an affluent, tech-savvy and mobile target audience. They needed a sophisticated app to exceed the demands of their tech-hungry readers, mostly men ages 25 to 40 who care as much about how they get their news as the news itself. High expectations of The Verge readers included social sharing and a brand-worthy, media-rich experience. The Verge also needed to ensure cross-platform continuity by leveraging the internal API’s of parent company, VOX Media.
WillowTree Apps developed a high-quality mobile app for iOS and Android, enhanced with social sharing capabilities, rich media, and a user experience worthy of The Verge’s tech-savvy audience. Through client collaboration, we ensured internal “Chorus” APIs were successfully incorporated into the apps, delivering best-in-class audio and video experiences to users.
