New pre­mium An­droid app for sub­scribers is now avail­able in the Google Play store

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - METRO | STATE - Alan Herzberger aherzberger@ ok­la­

Iwas speak­ing to a group of en­gi­neers a cou­ple of weeks ago at one of their reg­u­lar meet­ings.

I was talk­ing about what we do in the Au­di­ence De­vel­op­ment de­part­ment at The Ok­la­homan, es­pe­cially as it re­lates to sub­scribers (since the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple in the room that day were sub­scribers).

I talked about how we cre­ate dig­i­tal ex­pe­ri­ences for sub­scribers and fu­ture sub­scribers. Within the dis­cus­sion, I men­tioned that we had a ma­jor up­grade to The Ok­la­homan’s An­droid app set to be re­leased in a cou­ple weeks.

Af­ter the meet­ing, one man wanted to ask me about that app.

He wanted to con­firm what he thought he had heard. If there’s a new An­droid app, maybe he’ll get his young adult chil­dren to sub­scribe again. They read ev­ery­thing on those de­vices.

Well, the time is now. The An­droid app up­grade is here.

We have had an An­droid app with daily edi­tions of

The Ok­la­homan avail­able for down­load for years. The up­grade this week, how­ever, is sig­nif­i­cant.

We’ve added a video page, a photo page and a page for the Print Replica, al­low­ing sub­scribers to also see the news- pa­per as it went to press that day.

We’ve added break­ing news to our main sec­tion front and ad­di­tional sec­tions to help round out our na­tional, in­ter­na­tional and sports cov­er­age.

We’ve also added In­box alerts, al­low­ing you to cus­tom­ize the news head­lines that will feed the no­ti­fi­ca­tions on your phone or tablet.

It’s faster to down­load an edi­tion. It has more news and in­for­ma­tion. It has more mul­ti­me­dia op­tions. It has cus­tomiza­tion fea­tures.

The Ok­la­homan’s new An­droid app is the one to tell your fam­ily about.

Sub­scribers have ac­cess to this pre­mium prod­uct as part of their sub­scrip­tion.

Down­load it from the Google Play store to­day.
