Postmedia discontinues evening tablet editions

Postmedia has discontinued its evening tablet editions for the Ottawa Citizen, Montreal Gazette and Calgary Herald in order to focus its resources on its news apps. Postmedia launched its three 6:00 pm tablet editions 17 months ago.

“It was a beautiful product we were proud of, certainly, but it just didn’t reach a critical mass of audience or advertisers,” said Postmedia’s Phyllise Gelfand. “And we’re finding that our news app that’s constantly updated is a better product, it’s a more desirable product.”
