Web, radio news in PDI iPad app
Philippine Daily Inquirer
The Inquirer Group of Companies (IGC) has released an updated version of its Apple iPad app that for the first time combines the full issues of its award-winning print titles with news from its INQUIRER.net website and Radyo Inquirer 990AM radio station.
The app thus provides a complete news experience, with special reports and detailed analyses found in the print titles supplemented by online breaking news updates and lively radio discussions.
In addition to carrying web and radio updates, the app, available on http://www.
inquirer.net/apps, now carries over 60 newspapers, magazines and books from the Inquirer Group, up from the earlier 20.
The titles appear as they appear in print but with added interactive features such as sharing through Twitter, Facebook and e-mail as well as zoom and read-aloud capabilities.
Configurable e-mail alerts inform subscribers whenever a topic of interest appears in any of the periodicals and pages can be printed to show exactly how an article or advertisement appeared in print.
Some titles, such as Inquirer Books’ “Corona Trial” series and the “2012 Sona: The Speech and Special Reports,” are available only on the Digital Newsstand.
Aside from the iPad app, the Digital Newsstand provides apps for Google’s Android mobile operating system, Microsoft’s Windows7 operating system and the Blackberry Playbook.
It is also accessible on a website (http://bit.ly/Inquirer-digital) that works on PCs and Apple Macintosh computers, as well as a wide variety of mobile devices. Up to five separate devices can be used under one digital subscription plan.
A 14-issue trial of the Digital Newsstand is available.
Digital subscriptions start at $5.95 a month each for Cebu Daily News and Bandera, and $9.95 a month for the Inquirer.
Annual plans are discounted significantly at $56.95 and $95.99 and provide complimentary access to all Inquirer books and magazines from the IGC’s magazine arm, Hinge Inquirer.
Readers of the Inquirer, who have continuous subscription of the print edition for at least six months, are entitled to complimentary access to the Digital Newsstand. Call (632)8966000 to activate your complimentary access.
