Hi all, we have more exciting news from FutureFolio as our very own Jamie Magazine wins a Lovie! Voted by the public, Jamie won The People Choice Digital Magazine of the Year award. This is the second award this App has won following the Top 50 Apps award – voted by Apple – which they won at the end of 2012.
The high level of interactivity, bespoke features and smooth flow of the App helped it fight off competitors such as Harrods and Tate ETC.
Well done to everyone at Jamie on another success! See below for the full press release.
The mission of the Lovie Awards is to recognise the unique and resonant nature of the European digital community – from Europe’s top web and creative networks and content publishers to cultural and political organisations and bedroom bloggers. Now in its third year, the awards reflect the tremendous growth of the internet as a tool for business and everyday lives.
Jamie Magazine Managing Editor Paul Dring says: “Winning the People’s Lovie Award for tablet magazines rounds off a very successful first year with the FutureFolio team. In that year we have built and launched an app that has also won Apple’s App Store Best of 2012 and have been guided throughout by FutureFolio’s expert knowledge.”
Inside each issue of Jamie Magazine are enticing and achievable recipes from Jamie himself, as well as from the cream of the world’s chefs and food writers – all carefully road-tested in the Jamie Oliver test kitchens to make sure they work, time after time.
According to the publishers, the fully HD interactive edition of Jamie Magazine brings its content to life like never before, from simply succulent food photography to its unique Interactive Cook modes, where users can walk through easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions on their iPad as they’re cooking. Alongside easily searchable recipes, the FutureFolio tablet edition takes interactivity to the next step – allowing home chefs to create personalised and emailable shopping lists direct from the recipes for meal planning and preparation – as well as providing a full range of social media share options.
FutureFolio Sales Director Jon Benjamin adds: “It’s a well deserved treat for Jamie Magazine to pick up a coveted Lovie Award – and the icing on the cake that we also won the People’s Choice vote. The Jamie team are a pleasure to work with and the digital magazine is an ideal showcase of just how powerful and effective FutureFolio can be.”
