Today we're introducing smart new Ledger-Enquirer apps for your smartphone and tablet.
Just download them from the App Store, or update your current L-E app if you already have one. If you'd rather just log onto our site on your mobile device, you'll get the same experience at m.ledger-enquirer.com.
Here's what's new:
Improved design: Our new apps have a clean design and are more user-friendly. The phone app now allows you to swipe from story to story and from section to section.
Never miss a local story.
More multimedia: You can now view our popular photo galleries on your smart phone. And when you're reading a story on your phone or tablet, you can access all photos and videos associated with that story without changing pages.
Better commenting: When using your smart phone, you can now view all comments on a story or leave your own comments.
Push notifications: If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can opt to receive regular alerts, which we plan to send daily and as news breaks. We'll be adding this feature for Android devices soon.
Text message alerts: Regardless of your phone, if you can text then you can sign up for text message alerts by visiting ledger-enquirer.com/mobile. These alerts will be reserved for urgent news that affects a large number of people, and will be sent much less frequently.
That's it for now. But please know that we're working hard to bring you new ways to get more and better news faster. As always, I welcome your feedback. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or our digital editor, Stephanie Pedersen, at email@example.com.
Thanks for reading and watching!
