Ashwin Saddul, founder, Better than Paper, said “In collaboration with Mortons, we wanted to create an app that was intuitive to use, provides rail enthusiasts with real-time insightful news at their fingertips, and also gave users the opportunity to personalise their content feeds to include specific topics of interest to create more engagement. I’m delighted to be building a partnership with one of the longest standing, independent publishers in the UK to deliver The Railway Hub App.”
