Toronto’s Pressly launched today at the TechCrunch Disrupt 2011 conference in San Francisco.
Pressly is an online service for converting online publications to more readable tablet versions.
By bringing the great design and touch interface of tablet apps to your website, Pressly makes your publication more engaging, gives your readers a more delightful experience and makes it easier than ever for your content to be shared and loved by a growing generation of tablet users.
Because Pressly’s HTML5 apps live online, and not confined to an app store, you benefit from web traffic and SEO in a way typical apps don’t, and get more control over your business and insight about your readers.
Pressly is currently working with Canadian Living Magazine, Transcontinental Media Group and The Toronto Star as well as with the The Economist’s digital team in New York.
Pressly’s founders include CEO Jeff Brenner, CTO Peter Kieltyka, Marketing and Media Lead Tobin Dalrymple and Business Development Lead Chi Chen. Brenner and Kieltyka previously founded dev shop NuLayer.
Pressly was founded in April 2011 and has raised $800k to date.
