Lekiosque.fr becomes lekiosk and launches in Great Britain
During a press conference, Lekisoque.fr announced this morning its launch in Great Britain by the end of May. As part of this European development, the digital kiosk changes its name to become lekiosk.
Created in 2007 by young entrepreneurs, the kiosk gives access to more than 600 press titles from any PC, smartphone and Apple and Android tablet. Since last November, the application has also been available on Sony tablets. LeKiosk also offers a subscription, which allows you to acquire 10 magazines for € 9.99 / month.
When officially launched in Great Britain, the kiosk will offer access to nearly 200 magazines, including the titles of the groups Condé Nast (Wired, GQ, Vogue…) and Dennis, (The Week…). As part of this launch, the Frenchman also explains that he has obtained the abc certification, the British body which certifies the distribution of magazines in the United Kingdom.
Michaël Philippe, co-founder, also indicates: “We do not intend to stop there, we plan to offer a new version of the kiosk in other countries, to extend our offer beyond magazines”.
In addition to these announcements, the kiosk also took advantage of this press conference to communicate on these latest figures. It has just reached 500,000 downloads and claims 25,000 subscribers to its offer. One in four iPad users would have installed the application on their tablet. The company recorded a turnover of 1.2M € in 2011 and expects 6M turnover in 2012.
