The Oklahoman can now be found on your iPad.
A custom-built application for iPad tablet devices is now available in the App Store. It was approved for inclusion in the store by Apple's review process Wednesday.
"This is a wonderful delivery platform that we think has great promise," said David Thompson, president of OPUBCO Communications Group and publisher of The Oklahoman. "It's not only great for our readers, but for our advertisers, as well."
The application is free for users to download. Once the application is on the iPad, users will receive a complimentary edition. Subsequent daily editions will require a monthly subscription.
Current subscribers to The Oklahoman can receive the iPad edition for $4.99 a month. Nonsubscribers can receive the iPad edition for $9.99 a month.
The Oklahoman's iPad edition is aimed at news consumers who enjoy the lean-back reading experience, Thompson said.
Once an edition is downloaded on the device, customers can read the edition offline without an Internet connection. It's packaged and organized with the same daily sections that are available in The Oklahoman's print edition each day. It also contains additional multimedia content that is not available in print.
