MyNews.is launched on the 12th September, 2012 at Techcrunch Disrupt as a web app.
As signups on the web version didn't took of as expected, MyNews.is decided to change strategy and focus everything on the iPad. In September 2013, MyNews.is relaunched as a paid app on the iPad; while closing for new signups on the web version. The strategy paid off: MyNews.is quickly took of and reached the top of the app stores (top #1 news app in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria).
