“There’s an app for that,” is a phrase that has become common in most households and is now commonly heard at The Wanderer office. The Wanderer, which has been online since 1995, has now advanced to a fully automated delivery through Apple’s Newsstand on devices such as the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. When you install the free app, you can read The Wanderer in its entirety each week; you can also subscribe, which allows the app to automatically download the latest editions while your device is idle. Downloaded issues can be read at any time even if the device is unable to connect to the Internet.
Former Mattapoisett resident Alex Shaffer of Cleverkraft, who specializes in iOS development, designed The Wanderer app.
The new app compliments the current print edition and online offerings, which include daily updates and articles as well as an active Facebook page. Almost 2,000 people follow The Wanderer on Facebook to get up-to-the-minute news. Wanderer Today offers daily updates sent by email that give subscribers the latest headlines, weather, events, municipal meetings and sports schedules all at a glance in one simple message daily, available at www.wanderertoday.com.
Be sure to check out The Wanderer’s new app and online offerings to find the one that best suits your needs; remember, the online version of our publication is available a day early. We’d love to hear your questions and comments about The Wanderer so we can continue to make it the easiest way for you to get the information you need about the Tri-Town.
