Publications unveil mobile products
Beginning today, the monthly Oregon Wine Press is available for the iPad through Apple’s App Store. A special “News-Register Weekly” iPad edition debuted earlier, featuring the top stories from the previous Tuesday and Friday editions. Both apps are free.
This is just the beginning. Soon, both apps will be available for iPhones as well as Android tablets and phones.
“I’m thrilled to be able to give our readers an alternative way to experience the Oregon Wine Press,” said Editor Hilary Berg. “While we cherish our print edition, we are excited to embrace e-publishing as an essential component OWP.”
The News-Register is already available twice a week in an e-edition page-turner format. But Managing Editor Steve Bagwell said, “Adding a weekly version featuring custom-tailored content in a custom-tailored format represents a major new step.
“We’ve come a long way since we first went online in late 1995. That seems like eons ago, and given the torrid pace of modern technology, it truly is.”
To get either app, use your iPad to visit www.oregonwinepress.com or www.newsregister.com and click on a hot-link taking you to the App Store, or visit the App Store directly. Either way, you have a free download waiting for you, and it will be refreshed regularly with new content.
