“Add another startup to the list of those under Apple’s wings: PRSS,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac. “The company launched in 2012 and gained coverage in 2013 as a simple tool for creating magazine apps for the iPad and Android tablets.”
“Essentially, this is a web-based version of iBooks Author that is oriented toward magazines. It’s no secret that Apple’s Newsstand platform, originally launched in 2011 with iOS 5, has not taken off to Apple’s largest ambitions,” Gurman reports. “While the money piece may be one side of the issue, another could be the ease of use for creating iPad-optimized titles.”
Gurman reports, “Apple nor PRSS have confirmed the acquisition, but Netherlands-based Apple blog iCulture says it confirmed the acquisition.”
