Appstem is simultaneously launching iOS and Android apps for The Richmond Standard, bringing local stories, sports highlights, crime, and other news, directly to handsets for the Richmond, California community. The app is the newest addition to The Richmond Standard, which was recently awarded Best Newsroom 2018, by Bulldog PR Awards.
“Our business is not “one size fits all”. We always challenge ourselves with finding the best platform for a project and take a longterm approach on what that app will need to do now and in the future,” stated Robert Armstrong, CEO for Appstem.
Started in 2014, The Richmond Standard is the only news source dedicated to the Richmond area. It is a first-of-its-kind corporate-sponsored local community news site aimed at providing news to the community. Its newsroom consists of editorial team members, community-based freelancers, and a comprehensive editorial calendar. Monthly page views for the digital newspaper is roughly 154,000. The news-outlet is sponsored by Chevron and published by Singer Associates Public Relations San Francisco.
