SHAMOKIN - The News-Item mobile app is now available. It is the latest addition to The News-Item's digital offerings.

An "all-access" platform was launched Feb. 10, allowing subscribers to the print edition of The News-Item to have access to its electronic products at no additional charge. This includes unlimited access at www.newsitem.com and access to the e-edition, a digital replica of each day's newspaper.

The new app provides even more mobile-friendly access to content for smart phone, tablet and other mobile users. It quickly launches to a screen of options that includes breaking news, sections (news, sports, obituaries, opinions, etc.), multimedia and an informative and attractive weather page.

Again, all-access is free to those who already subscribe to the print edition; activation is all that's needed. For those who have not yet activated their all-access accounts, go to newsitem.com/activate.

Those who don't have a print edition but who wish to access the digital content, including the new app, can do so for $10 per month. Go to www.newsitem.com/subscribe.

The new app is free to download from the App Store for Apple users or from Google Play for users with Android devices.
