Oban Times’ dig­i­tal upgrade helps you ‘stay con­nected’

The Oban Times - - News -

CON­NECT­ING peo­ple with news from across Ar­gyll and the West High­lands has just be­come eas­ier thanks to sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments to The Oban Times dig­i­tal edi­tion.

Ear­lier this year, the dig­i­tal edi­tion was made avail­able to read on any smart­phone or tablet device, mean­ing read­ers can en­joy the pa­per any­where, any­time. Now fur­ther im­prove­ments have been made to the ser­vice so peo­ple can read each ar­ti­cle in full-screen for­mat, as well as be­ing able to flick through pages and pinch and zoom in on ar­ti­cles as be­fore.

To let peo­ple know of the changes, The Oban Times has launched its new cam­paign, “Stay con­nected”, which in­cludes a stun­ning 30-sec­ond film of peo­ple from Ar­gyll read­ing the news­pa­per on their device in beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing Oban town cen­tre, the Isle of Ker­rera, and North Con­nel. The film is avail­able to watch on

The Oban Times web­site and on Face­book, Twit­ter and YouTube.

There is also the chance to win an iPad Mini 2 – all you have to do is sign up to a six- or 12-month dig­i­tal subscription from to­day (Thurs­day June 16) un­til Septem­ber 1, 2016. Terms and con­di­tions ap­ply. To en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion and sub­scribe on­line, from as lit­tle as 63p per issue, read­ers can sign up by vis­it­ing an ex­clu­sive of­fer web­page www.oban­times.co.uk/sc3. Su­san Win­dram, Ed­i­tor for

The Oban Times, said: ‘ We are thrilled to launch our Stay Con­nected cam­paign to­day and to share our new and im­proved edi­tion with our read­ers.

‘Whether it’s from Cal­gary Bay on the Isle of Mull or Cal­gary Canada, The Oban Times is the per­fect plat­form to ac­cess lo­cal news and fea­tures from Ar­gyll and the West High­lands no mat­ter where you are in the world.’
