Mobile apps, e-Editions and text alerts

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.

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.

Update: In March 2016, our iPad and iPhone news and Experience Hilton Head apps were reformatted into a single, universal app that is available for both platforms.

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