Note to app users:

We launched major updates to our live news apps for phones and iPads on May 30. If your device is set to automatically install updates, you should already have the new apps. There are many improvements with the upgrades, including larger photos and a cleaner display. Tablet users might notice that the link to our e-Edition "digital newspaper" is missing. DON'T WORRY! This is only temporary. Access should be restored soon. In the meantime, you can us our e-Edition app (see below) to access this product, or point your device to and choose the edition you want to read. You might need to log in to your Press+ account one time to restore access.

Your device, our news

We offer iOS, Android and Windows phone and tablet apps to deliver our Island Packet and Beaufort Gazette local, national and international news, sports and features -- as well as local store circulars, DealSaver offers, classified ads and home and auto listings -- directly to your preferred mobile device. Coming to our iPad apps in the fall: Sudoku and crosswords!

Our newest app is Experience Hilton Head, a source of free information and features about Hilton Head Island targeted to potential visitors. Check it out and encourage your out-of-town friends and family to download it for the latest information on events, shopping, golf and other Hilton Head Island experiences.

Our apps are free to download and allow a limited number of free page views. Full access is available through a low-cost digital subscription.
