The Deal, which was acquired a year ago by TheStreet.com, announced Wednesday the launch of a new version of its iPad application and a new iPhone app.
The apps provide news articles and video reporting from The Deal’s newsroom in addition to a new feature for the iPad app that offers information about the initial public offering market powered by NYSE Euronext. Both apps are available to licensees of The Deal’s transaction information service, The Deal Pipeline.
“We’re taking The Deal Pipeline’s user experience to the next level by offering mobile access to our top reporting in a variety of ways. Those who frequent The Deal can now keep abreast of the latest news as it happens, with periodical reports or intraday news by sector,” said Michael Crosby, chief operating officer for The Deal, in a statement. “Our users are interested in the ongoing news of mergers and acquisitions.”
The Deal Pipeline for iPad and iPhone also feature a breaking news tool providing early alerts on potential deals and a preview of events driving the reporting in The Deal’s newsroom, a twice-daily feature with accompanying slideshow on who’s moving up and who’s moving out across the deal economy, and nine pages dedicated to coverage in consumer and retail, energy, health care, industrials, private equity, real estate, regulation, restructuring and telecommunications media and technology.
