Spanning 40+ titles and six standalone apps, the one million paid app transactions signifies Bauer’s commitment to deliver more opportunities for consumers to connect with the content and brands they love.

On Bauer’s mobile developments, Marcelo Silva, Bauer Media Group’s Head of Mobile said, “The milestone of one million paid app transactions signifies a new phase in our digital strategy. We have invested in research to better understand our audience and are dedicated to developing digital and mobile products that provide incremental audiences for our brands.

“Our pipeline for the next 12 months will see an expansion in our mobile offering of magazine based content, as well as a substantial increase in non-magazine mobile products using both paid and ad funded app models.”

The investment in growing Bauer’s mobile footprint comes off the back of an extensive quantitative research survey conducted in conjunction with Nine Rewards. The research insights enable us to better understand the mobile media consumption habits of Australians and their appetite for content.
