TechStars NY grad Onswipe just announced its series Awesome, complete with an actual term sheet bearing that header.
The tablet publishing platform is prepping a launch for June 21st when it will announce major partnerships that we hear includes the nation’s biggest newspapers, magazine publishers and online properties.
Tellingly the service does not currently work with Android tablets. Onswipe is keeping a close eye on the sales numbers for these devices and will add it to the arsenal if it becomes a viable option.
Beyond easy conversion of any site to a tablet friendly format, Onswipe is hoping to help publishers deal with the Instapaper problem. Readers love to save articles to consume at their convenience, whether they are on or offline. But services like Instapaper strip out all the branding and advertising. Onswipe plans to solve that problem with MyOnswipe, which caches stories for users to read without stripping them bare.
