We just released our first news app for i Phone, which you can download from the App Store right now. The app, exclusive to i Phone, is a whole new way to experience Quartz.
We put aside existing notions about news apps and imagined what our journalism would be if it lived natively on your i Phone. It would be something entirely different, with original writing, new features, and a fresh interface. It’s an ongoing conversation about the news, sort of like texting: We’ll send you messages, photos, GIFs, and links, and you can tap to respond when you’re interested in learning more about a topic.
You can pick what you want: haikus about how the stock market is performing, important developments in the global economy, etc.These are notifications you will actually enjoy receiving.And we won’t buzz you unless it’s really important; most alerts will just quietly light up your phone.There are other treats to enjoy without even opening the app.On the Today screen, you can view our most compelling Atlas chart of the moment.
And if you own an Apple Watch, add our complication to your watch face to see how the US markets are faring — in the form of an emoji.
We make it easy to stay up-to-date on investor sentiment without doing any work at all. This is a new kind of business news app, just as has strived to be a new kind of business news website.
We’re excited to add Quartz for i Phone to the roster of ways in which you can get our reporting, perspective, and voice.
The app’s interface may resemble an automated assistant, but here’s the secret about our little news bot: It’s actually written by humans!
Smart journalists who want to keep you informed and entertained.
We’ve assembled a global group of Quartz writers and editors, led by Adam Pasick, to give the app its voice.
