The Economist Group Launches 2012 Election App For Tablets

From MediaPost:

The Economist Group is launching Electionism, a free HTML5 Web app for tablets, including iPad, Samsung Galaxy and Kindle Fire.  It culls content from The Economist and CQ Roll Call, including news and analysis about the upcoming presidential election.

From Paid Content:

Electionism, as the new product is called, includes content from The Economist, its niche Washington, DC, sister title Roll Call, tweets and links to other web election writing.


The Financial Times, which owns half of The Economist Group, last week acquired the development firm that built its web application, which has replaced its executable iOS apps.

Electionism is free., from which some of its content comes, requires a subscription for older content.
