DescriptionTwo Dutch guys met at a party in Amsterdam. A month later they had a magazine. Jochem Wijnands who used to run an online photo agency and Michel Elings a technology consultant found they had a shared passion for travel. They put their heads and networks together to create TRVL an iPad-only magazine that is the highest rated magazine app on Apple’s App Store. Each issue of the weekly magazine features a single destination through content that taps into the iPad’s multimedia capabilities. The goal in Elings’ words was to “make print feel stupid.”
