iPHONE users are a fingertip away from a quicker, easier and more innovative way to keep abreast of breaking news in Berkshire.
The Observer's parent company Berkshire Media Group has launched the county's first mobile app for weekly newspapers which will revolutionise how readers keep-up-to-date with our latest stories.
The free web-based app for The Observer provides up-to-date news, sport, opinion and entertainment straight to users' mobile phones and tablets at the touch of a screen when and where you want it. Tim Cole, The Observer editor, said: "We are the first publishers of weekly newspapers in Berkshire to invest in apps and I am sure these will prove an exciting product to support our newspapers and their websites.
"The investment shows our commitment to being a multi-platform news provider in our communities and is only the first stage in a series of innovative digital products being developed by Berkshire Media Group."
Currently it is only available for iPhone users with Android and Windows versions coming soon.
The app is sponsored by Datchet-based Fitz Solicitors and offers the same news content as the websites but presented in a more efficient way.
