We’re happy to release the tablet-ready version of our popular Times Argus e-Edition, the interactive digital replica of our print newspaper, which includes extra online-only stories and photos.
The new version of the e-Edition works on the iPad and iPhone, Android-powered tablets like the Samsung Galaxy, Android smartphones, and the Kindle Fire. It’s our first version and uses new technology called HTML5 – which means it works well, but you can expect further improvements in the look in feel to come, as we work with our developer to improve.
Still, it’s pretty awesome, and if you’re one of our readers who have been frustrated by the complications caused by the Flash technology on Apple devices, well, problems solved.
This edition is available now to our e-Edition and e-VtNewshound subscribers for free, and to our existing print subscribers for only fifty cents a week. Call Subscriber Services today to sign up, or click here for our Subscription Center, log in and upgrade.
The phone number for Subscriber Services in our Barre office is 804-479-4040, and we’re at the phones from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every weekday. If you don’t have time to call, just shoot us an email – firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for your options.
