Apple recently released the news that with its next update to iOS 9 this fall (September), and it will include a new app completely streamlined and and made for iOS with a customizable news feed. This is a boon to WordPress users because your content can be submitted ahead of time for inclusion. Like right now.
Publishers interested in signing up can visitÂ www.icloud.com/newspublisherÂ with additional publishing tools available later this year. iOS 9 will be available this fall as a free software update for iPhone 4s and later, iPod touchÂ® 5th generation, iPad 2 and later, iPad miniâ„¢ and later. Features are subject to change. Some features may not be available in all regions or all languages.
One thing I would suggest is that you have your image/logo ready to submit. Also, they will ask for your name, business name (if you’re an individual adding a blog, your personal name), blog name and address, contact information, language and audience choice. I chose “general” since my topics include more than just genealogy. If I’m accepted I would think I could change that to a specific audience if needed.
In the Apple Press Info they also intimated that at some point the app can be monetized by publishers.
