Blynk Newsletter

 

At Blynk, we are spending lesser time reading newspapers and watching TV news channels and are getting more and more of our daily news dose via newsletters and blogs.

Since we make mobile apps, it was ironical that our older newsletter did not look so great on mobile phones. Our latest newsletter design is more beautiful, more modern and best of all, is responsive. That means it scales as per your device screen and so is optimized for mobile phones and tablets.

We look forward to your feedback and we hope to continue sharing tips on how to serve your guests in a blynk.
