As reported on HoldtheFrontPage, Johnston Press has taken a significant, albeit late, move into the modern, technological world.
Edinburgh based daily The Scotsman launched an iPhone app on Thursday in an attempt to attract a younger generation of readers.
Many national and international newspapers have previously launched apps, but the move represents JP’s first efforts in the field and, the company says, the first smartphone application in Scotland.
The app, which comes three years after the iPhone was launched but that will be compatible with the new iPad, will cost £1.75 for a three month subscription.
It will include live breaking news and sport, as well as health, politics and education sections.
A digital, page turning version of the print edition and review pages will also be available.
