MARTINS FERRY - For generations The Times Leader has provided a comprehensive daily report of happenings in the Belmont County and surrounding areas.
Adding an Apple OS application to the ways our readers can receive their news is the latest media the newspaper is using to reach readers when and where they want their news.
The app joins the printed newspaper and www.timesleaderonline.com as ways you can receive your news.
All three are unique products, providing both news and special features that are unique to the media.
The huge popularity of the Apple iPhone and iPad pushed us to develop the app for them first.
The combined traffic that our website gets from the two devises is far more than from all other mobile devices combined.
All mobile users, including those on Apple devices, still will be able to access our site using a web browser.
Content to our main site, our mobile site located at mobile.timesleaderonline.com and to our new app is updated daily.
Visiting our website with any device running the Apple OS system will trigger a screen urging readers to download the app.
You may also search for The Times Leader in the app store.
You may also visit www.timesleaderonline.com/iphone and be redirected to the correct site.
With this app, reading can read stories, write comments, search and take polls.
"We are pleased to extend the reach of our award-winning and trusted newspaper to our readers who have long depended on us to let them know what is happening in their community," said Lori Figurski, publisher of The Times Leader. "The addition of the iPhone app gives us another way to serve our readers."
