Today’s unveiling of our iPhone app marks another huge step for the Central Western Daily in terms of giving readers more ways to access our news, sport and photos.
The Central Western Daily is only the second NSW newspaper with an iPhone app.
A team of people within the Central Western Daily and Fairfax Media in Sydney have worked for months to turn the concept into reality and develop special features to allow interaction with readers.
More people than ever before are accessing the Central Western Daily through various platforms while newspaper sales also remain strong.
The iPhone app is another exciting step in media evolution and it gives readers the flexibility to access our information 24 hours a day at the touch of a button.
Just one of the great functions of the app is the report function which allows you to send us news tip and respond to assignments we set. It means you don’t just get the news, you help make it!
For example, an assignment asks you to send in your favourite weekend photo. You capture the moment, send us the image via the app. We then use your photo in a gallery, online, on the app and in the newspaper.
The news tip function can also be used to send us a news tip or photo from a breaking news story you’ve seen – a crash, a bushfire – anything you think may be of interest to our readers.
