Always holding innovation and creativity as one of its benchmarks, MMNL set the trend in the Kannada news industry by making its daily Udayavani, the first Kannada newspaper to be available on the web in e-paper format in 1997, a move replicated by its competitors in later years. Not only did this help MMNL to gain a new foothold among Kannada readers but it also helped Udayavani as well as the Kannada news industry to reach out to a wider audience beyond physical boundaries, especially to the expatriate Kannadiga who had for long hoped to have a stable link to their homeland.

A little more than a decade later, MMNL again raised the bar in the digital domain by releasing an iPad App for Udayavani in May, 2011. Soon after in October, 2011, an Udayavani mobile application was launched through an alliance with Newshunt so that mobile users across 1500 different models of handsets would be able to access their favourite Kannada newspaper on their phone, only at the cost of regular data charges from their service operator.

Buoyed by the response from the readers to the first ever Kannada newspaper App and mobile application, MMNL extended its range of Apps on offer to keep in sync with the changing habits of online users and launched Udayavani Apps for the iPhone, Android tablet and phone, in the first few months of 2012.

Believing in the ethos of creating a sustainable and secure digital portfolio of products for its readers and creating multiple touch points to be an integral part of their lives, today Udayavani is the leader in the digital segment in the Kannada space with a complete presence across the iOS, Android and mobile platforms.
