The Financial Times has registered another digital milestone with the FT Web App seeing over one million users since its launch in June.
Available on the iPhone and iPad by visiting app.ft.com directly from the device’s web browser, almost half of its users have downloaded a shortcut to their iPad or iPhone home screen, replicating a native app experience.
British readers who donate to this year’s Financial Times Seasonal Appeal in aid of Sightsavers will have their contribution doubled by the UK Government.
The seasonal appeal runs from 21 November to mid-January and involves coverage of Sightsavers work, helping change the lives of blind and visually impaired people in the developing world. All donations made by individuals in the UK will be matched pound for pound by the UK Government, in support of the public’s choice to give to this cause.
