Hearing praise from a fan of the NewsOK app & a fan of the Barons

Sports writer/columnist/reporter/expert/personality Berry Tramel shared this email with me last week:

Can’t thank you enough for the newsok  app.  Living in South Carolina, it brings me in touch with what’s happening in news and sports (mostly sports for me) back home.  I was hoping you could pass it along to the necessary powers to maybe add a button for The Barons news.  I’m a hockey fan and would like to read any articles written by the sports staff.  Thanks for the time.

The customer was referring to the NewsOK iPhone app. We’ve had it for about a year and a half, and it’s definitely an experience meant for our NewsOK enthusiasts. It’s a steady stream of news headlines separated by many different topics.

Here’s just a bit of background on that topic. The constant stream of headlines on the NewsOK app is a departure from our app for The Oklahoman — those are meant for edition-based prioritized headlines that a reader of The Oklahoman might enjoy.

Two different apps. Two different experiences.

Regardless of all that, this reader really likes the NewsOK app, and that’s good. And I appreciated his feedback about the Barons headlines. That was a simple oversight. It’s there now.

Continue to enjoy the NewsOK app … or the mobile website … or The Oklahoman app … or NewsOK.com … or The Oklahoman Print Replica. It doesn’t really matter to us. We just want to find the best way to deliver news and information to you.
