As of today, there are more than thirty-seven thousand writers who are registered to IDN Times Community. With the rapid progress, IDN Times wants to facilitate Community Writers' increasing aspiration to write by providing an accessible writing platform.

"Many Indonesian millennials are passionate in writing. However, they do not own a computer or laptop. This mobile app allows them to write directly from their smartphones; thus, their articles are available to be read by millions of people easily," said Winston Utomo, CEO and Editor-in-Chief at IDN Media.

"Beside, IDN Times Community is not just a writing platform. It can help to develop our nation's economy by opening jobs to people across the country, especially those in rural areas where there are not many opportunities to work in the creative industry. This platform will open the door for millions of millennials to turn their writing hobby into a professional career," said Winston about IDN Times Community vision.

Such convenience can be a stimulus for all Community Writers to pour their creativity through IDN Times Community."

The latest version of IDN Times mobile app is now available on android-based smartphones. All loyal IDN Times readers and Community Writers can download it on Google Playstore.
