QNA News App is the fruit of technical cooperation with KnowledgeView Ltd of the UK who provided the Publish live mobile technology. The App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store as ‘QNA News’.
Qatar News Agency (QNA) was established in 1975 to be the first news agency providing comprehensive Gulf news coverage. Since then QNA has invested in advanced technology for digital editorial as well as for news delivery, including video streaming, online publishing, social networks tools and media monitoring.
The iPhone App is powered by advanced Publish live mobile server technology from KnowledgeView, integrated with QNA’s editorial system, thus enabling QNA to have effortless delivery of news on the Apple iPhone. Apart from serving different groups of users, QNA uses the App to send editorial advisory on planned coverage to subscribers.
“Qatar News Agency is striving to give value to the society through its state-of-the-art digital services. The iPhone app will help QNA broaden its clients base and outreach to Qatari people in the country and abroad. 5 million visitors are flocking every year to the QNA digital platforms and we found it crucial to enhance their experience and offer them seamlessly news, photos and videos on their iPhones. Qatar News Agency believes in furthering the partnership with KnowledgeView that offers solid pioneering technologies to empower news providers, editorial practices and content exchange in the Arab world and beyond. There is a mutual trust and a line up of promising projects with KnowledgeView to give our community value linked to social media.”, Eng. Khalid Mohammed Al-Motawa, Director of Technical Affairs, QNA, said.
“It is a great pleasure for KnowledgeView to work with QNA on this iPhone App and other technologies. The development of this App was done in record time thanks to the great spirit of technical cooperation between KnowledgeView’s and QNA’s technical teams, we look forward for working together on future advanced mobile and tablet delivery technologies.” Ali Al-Assam, Managing Director, KnowledgeView.
