Photo galleries and comics added to The Oklahoman’s iPad edition

Is Santa bringing you an iPad this week?

Are you browsing the app store to see what you want to add to your new gift?

If you have a new iPad or you’ve had one for a while, let me offer two more reasons to download The Oklahoman’s iPad application:

  1. Photo galleries
  2. Daily comics

Beginning with tomorrow’s edition of The Oklahoman on the iPad, you can read all our comics and browse all our photos. It’s just one more upgrade to our constantly improving product.

On each section of the edition — Metro, Life, Sports, Business, etc. — you can see all the photos in that section. So if you just don’t feel like reading, you can browse the news as it’s told through our photos.

And while the galleries are additions to each section, comics is a bit different. It’s an entirely new section. So if you’ve held off buying a subscription to The Oklahoman in the iPad because the daily comics weren’t available, you no longer have that excuse.

Here’s a bit of history. The Oklahoman’s iPad application has been available since October. We’ve refined the product and added some new features. Since our initial launch, we’ve had six updates to the app in the store.

We are currently on version 1.2.1, which sounds very technical. But here’s what 1.2.1 means to me:

  • It means we’re still in the early stages of this product.
  • It also means we are making major improvements quickly. Remember, our first version became available just a couple months ago.

So, today the new features we have for our customers is the addition of comics and photo galleries. But those new pieces of content rest on top of all the stories and related videos that have always been available in our daily product on the app.

I invite you download the app and take a look for yourself (your first edition is free). It’s available now in the iPad App Store.
