If you have not tried The Oklahoman’s Print Replica product, this weekend is the time to give it a shot.
We have some scheduled maintenance planned for Sunday morning. That means that some of the features on NewsOK and Oklahoman.com will not be available for a few hours. Our full-featured sites will return as soon as possible on Sunday.
But we thought it would be a good opportunity to open up The Oklahoman’s Print Replica product for the weekend. That means that all users can try it on Saturday and Sunday.
The Oklahoman’s Print Replica edition is available on your desktop browser for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Safari — really, you can use whatever you normally use. After you open up the page, you can see The Oklahoman as it was printed.
Every section. Every page. Flip through it. Zoom in. Open up stories you want to read. Zoom out. Flip to the next page. It’s simple to use.
The product is also available on iPads as a downloadable app from the App Store: same idea — every section and every page. The cool part about using the app on the iPad is the experience of holding the tablet while flipping the pages. It just feels right.
Either way you access the Print Replica product is fine with us. We’d just like you to try it. We opened it up for the weekend. Normally, we require a subscription to access the Print Replica editions — either connecting your print subscription or signing up for a digital subscription.
But you won’t see a log-in screen Saturday or Sunday. Try it.
If you like it, we’ll invite you to use it again on Monday morning. But we’ll require a log-in then.
By then, you’ll understand its value.
