OfVancouver is a local luxury guide curated by experts and features lifestyle topics such as real estate, food, drink, and premium products. The iPad application will be offered in both English and Chinese, tailored for the most discerning residents and newcomers. The iPad application, created by Vancouver start-up OfCity Guide Inc. and Flat World Applications, will be available internationally this September.
One thing to note is OfVancouver’s sleek and modern design that takes rich-media content to new heights. The application fully maximizes the iPad’s display capabilities and engages readers with a true interactive browsing experience. Many traditional publishers have not been able to rid themselves of pdf-like magazines offered on the Newstand, often recreating print experiences. OfVancouver is what rich-media content should look like on tablets – offering not only recreational value for readers but also tremendous opportunities for media partners and advertisers – especially those with an interest in capturing the Asia Pacific market.
With OfVancouver’s hyperlocal luxury lifestyle focus, readers can expect to find editorial features that help enrich their lives and experience the city. By working with a team of local lifestyle experts in order to curate the best content, OfVancouver allows readers to discover the city with ease. Making it even more convenient are automatic content updates sent directly to your device so you don’t have to download new issues that take up space on your iPad.
OfVancouver is a Canadian venture founded in 2011 with the principle that “every design element they create has to be from the future,” the OfVancouver Team boldly claims to give readers the most beautiful iPad app they’ve ever seen.
