The Star has launched a new iPad app. New features include a more contemporary look and feel, photo galleries added to article pages, integrated user comments, a weather page and access to E-Star – an enhanced replica edition of today’s print newspaper.

In addition, these new apps retain many of the previous versions’ most popular features, such as your most in-depth coverage of local news, weather and sports, article bookmarking and article sharing.

Soon, we will follow with a similar redesign of our iPhone apps that will heighten the interactivity of your local news experience. We are also experimenting with exciting tablet-only content that we will be introducing throughout 2014.
