Thomson Reuters Corporation : Reuters releases White House Run app for iPhone

NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 23, 2016
- Today Reuters, the world's largest international multimedia news provider,
released theWhite House Run
app for iPhone, a mobile game that lets voters simulate a U.S. presidential
candidate and run for election, as well as catch up on Reuters political and
polling news.

ReutersWhite House Run
is a 2016 presidential election simulation rooted in a data story. Users are
able to build their own candidate and jump into an election by declaring
positions on the issues, as well as test their knowledge of current events.
The candidate's electability is determined by actual Reuters/Ipsos polling
data, giving users a realistic experience of understanding the role of public
opinion in choosing America's next leader. Users will also have access to
current Reuters political news and polling results at their fingertips within
the app.

"White House Run allows users to engage with Reuters' rich polling data and
news in a fresh way," said Reginald Chua, Executive Editor, Editorial
Operations, Data and Innovation at Reuters. "It's a fun opportunity to see
how users' own views compare with public opinion, and how well their stances
on the issues would fare among the public compared to other White House Run
users."

Built on the SAP Mobile Platform, ReutersWhite House Run
capitalizes on the rich pool of polling data collected by the online
Reuters/Ipsos polls across business, politics and elections, current affairs
and lifestyle topics. In 2012, Reuters embarked on an ambitious polling
project that set the standard for news organizations. Instead of using
telephones to gather results on a semi-regular basis, Reuters partnered with
the research firm Ipsos to reach a huge number of pre-screened respondents
online. As a result, Reuters/Ipsos have not only polled far more people than
a traditional telephone survey can reach, but have been continuously polling
for more than three years, asking hundreds of questions of more than 11,000
people every month.
