An update rolls out this week for the Albuquerque Journal’s digital replica newspaper and app, which will provide new features and faster access to the news.
Subscribers will be able to use their same usernames and passwords to access it.
The two-in-one app displays both the daily newspaper and the latest news published in an improved digital layout.
“The Albuquerque Journal constantly is working to improve its technology to better deliver news from New Mexico’s leading information source directly to you wherever you are,” Journal owner and publisher William P. Lang said Monday. “This includes in print, on your computer and on your mobile phone or tablet.”
The app update will occur automatically for most Apple and Android phone or tablet users. Otherwise, you can download the update by searching for Albuquerque Journal newspaper on the app store for each device. Other platforms, including Kindle Fire, are coming soon.
The app has an updated icon with the Journal eagle that reflects the newspaper’s more than 100-year history as a home-owned publication; it will replace the old app on your device.
“The new app introduces a new look and opening layout to live news,” said Robert Rivera, Journal vice president for circulation. “New features include a read aloud option so articles can be read to you, better zoom and large text capabilities, customization of app opening display, and access to premium editions and special sections.”
On computers, the eJournal has also been updated with new features.
A push notification each morning will let subscribers know when the daily newspaper is ready. Notifications also will alert readers whenever breaking local news happens.
The app includes an easier way to print puzzles, to clip stories for sharing and to access recent newspapers.
The eJournal and new app continue to provide a page-by-page replica of the final edition of the daily and Sunday newspaper, including special sections.
