ePresse (published by Toutabo SA (FR0010621722 - MLBO), a leading player in the French digital press, is launching a new version of its 'Article' feed to improve the user experience. This new service allows readers to access easily to all the news from the 1,300 press titles (newspapers and magazines) present on the ePresse kiosk.
- A live AFP feed with articles on all the themes updated every quarter of an hour,
- A 'Headlines' page and thematic categories of all the newspapers and magazines updated before 5 am,
- Access to a 'curated' version of newspapers and magazines which respects the editorial line of the titles,
- A search engine on the whole 'Article' database
The service is built on a paywall that starts at the 1st article: the articles are only readable in their entirety as part of the unlimited reading subscription at 9.99 € per month.
A non-subscribed user has access only to the titles and subtitles of the articles.
'Access to an article feed service and to newspapers in a curated version responds to a significant demand stemming from new reading habits coming from information aggregators. It makes it possible to reconcile both the reading of full content from newspapers and magazines and the need to have access to live information 'comments Jean-Frédéric LAMBERT, President of ePresse
