The Straits Times releases its newest e-book ST100
SINGAPORE - The Straits Times today launched its latest e-book, ST100, which highlights the most significant news events and trends of 2013 and looks at what 2014 has in store.
The all-you-need-to-know-about-2013 multimedia package can be downloaded for free for the iPad from Apple's App store now (https://itunes.apple.com/app/id783596981?mt=8).
The 118-page e-book features the top 10 stories spanning 10 sections on Singapore, World, Money, Sports, Photos, Cartoons, Online, Technology, Fashion, and Arts, Entertainment and Food.
It contains interactive features such as videos, photo galleries and pop-up factoids, from Singapore news such as the country's worst haze ever and home-grown multi-award winning film Ilo Ilo, to global headliners such as the Boston marathon bombings and the geopolitical tensions in East Asia.
Mr Warren Fernandez, editor of The Straits Times said ST100 is part of the newsroom's continuing push to stay at the forefront of multimedia journalism.
"At the start of a new year, it's timely to look ahead at what might shape the year. Our writers have done this in print, as well as on our website," said Mr Fernandez. "Our new e-book goes further in summing up the top stories from 2013, as well as what might be top of the news in 2014, in words, pictures and videos. It's our way of helping ST readers get on top of things as we enter 2014."
Also featured are the most-read online stories on straitstimes.com, the ST art desk's picks of illustrations by well-known cartoonists and artists such as Lee Chee Chew and Miel; and the best photos of the year taken by the paper's photojournalists.
The e-book is sponsored by local interior design firm, Sky Creation.
Said Dr Sky Tan, its Chief Executive Officer: "We are honoured to partner The Straits Times in launching its first digital platform that features the top 100 events of Singapore. It is important for us to reflect on these major events so that we can see what lessons we can gather from them. In short, learn from the past so that we can have a better future."
