LISBON - For 160 years the Morning Journal has provided a comprehensive daily report of happenings in Columbiana County and the surrounding area.
Now we have added an Apple OS application for the iPhone to the ways our readers can access the news.
The app joins the printed newspaper and www.morningjournalnews.com as ways you can get your news. All three products provide both news and special features that are unique to each.
The huge popularity of the Apple iPhone and iPad pushed us to develop the app for them first. The combined traffic that our website gets from the two devices is far more than from all other mobile devices combined.
All mobile users, including those on Apple devices still will be able to access our site using a web browser. Content to our main site, our mobile site located at mobile.www.morningjournalnews.com and to our new app is updated daily.
Visiting our website with any device running the Apple OS system will trigger a screen urging readers to download the app. You also can search for "Lisbon Morning Journal" in the app store. You can also visit www.morningjournalnews.com/iphone and be redirected to the correct site.
Users of our mobile app will receive breaking news alerts, the days top news and sports stories, along with being able to write comments and vote in our polls and search for articles.
"Our commitment to covering the news of Columbiana County has remained solid for the past 160 years. With the release of our new mobile app, we will continue to satisfy the changing needs of our readers," said Larry Dorschner, Morning Journal publisher.
