You may have noticed some changes this term. There is a different president at UWG. The WOLF Internet Radio is even more awesome than usual. And here at The West Georgian, we are launching an app.
Available on the three major mobile platforms, iOS, Android and Windows Phone, you can now read The West Georgian and all things UWG when you’re out and about.
It took quite a bit of work, and it’s still far from finished (it’s more of an ongoing hobby, really), we’ll continue to improve and update the app as time goes on.
There’s three major sections on each app, News, which fetches our news from our website, editorials, the lot, so you can read them when you fancy. Sports fetches the latest sports news from the UWG Sports site and Events tells you what is up and coming from the UWG calendar. It really is the only app you need (other than the official UWG one, of course, we also have to say that).
Plus, if you’re an iPhone or Android user, you can drop us a message directly from the app, tell us about an article you want to write, or a story you’d like us to cover, and most likely, we’ll cover it.
This semester, we’re going to work really hard on updating our website every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This means that the app will never be out of date. We’re moving more with the mainstream media, less paper copies, more online updates.
Plus, if you have an Android tablet, the app will work natively with it. But, iPad users, we haven’t forgotten about you! The current iPhone version will of course get supersized for your lovely iPad screen, and there will, eventually, be a full-blown iPad version for you to use.
So there you go West Georgia, enjoy the new ways to read your news. As and when we do any major updates, we’ll let you know, but in the meantime, get reading!
