Scottish weekly launches news and sport app

A weekly paper in Scotland has launched a free mobile app for news and sport.

The Helensburgh Advertiser has created the new application, which is available on iPhone, Android, Windows and some Blackberries, and is claimed to be a first for a weekly title in Scotland.

Martin Little, managing editor of the Romanes Media Group’s Scottish weeklies, said: “We are the first publishers of weekly newspapers in Scotland to invest in apps and I am sure these will prove an exciting product to support our newspapers and their websites.

“The investment shows our commitment to being a multi-platform news provider in our communities and is the first stage in a series of innovative digital products being developed by Romanes Media Group.”

The app, which is sponsored by Helensburgh Toyota, can be downloaded by users from the newspaper’s website or by scanning a QR Code printed in the paper.
