Dear Reader: Enjoy our improved iPad app!

info@islandpacket.comDecember 17, 2013 


Today we are launching a new iPad app. Not only are we updating the look and feel, but we are also enhancing the feature set, adding video and photo galleries to articles and article comments.

In addition, these new apps retain many of the previous versions’ most popular features, such as your most in-depth coverage of local news, weather and sports, push notifications, article bookmarking and article sharing.

Soon, we will follow with a similar redesign of our iPhone apps that will heighten the interactivity of your local news experience. We are also experimenting with exciting tablet-only content that we will be introducing throughout 2014.

If you are reading this on our website, we invite you to download our new apps in the Apple App Store. We also invite you to try out our other recently updated and soon-to-be updated mobile products:

This is another exciting step forward in our effort to continue to deliver Island Packet news and information to you wherever you are and however you want it.

Sara Johnson Borton, Publisher

The Island Packet is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
