KNS editor Jack McElroy has a column today about a new Scripps initiative called the "Four Platforms" strategy for delivering content on the web, smartphones, tablets and print.

The current smartphone/tablet offering, at least for Android, is sort of primitive. It isn't much more than a basic RSS feed reader. I'm guessing it's a generic Scripps corporate-developed stopgap app provided to all their media outlets.

For the next generation, they really ought to take a look at some of the nicer user interfaces like Flipboard or Currents.

I realize they don't have Google money/skills for developing mobile/tablet apps, but surely it can't be that hard.

Their website has been slow all morning. The Mrs. had to go out to the mailbox in the cold to get the hardcopy. Maybe they are installing and testing the paywall.
