iOS and Android Apps

Our-Hometown offers Mobile Apps for Newspapers in the form of iOS & Android applications, making it easier than ever for your readers to stay up to date with the latest news and happenings in your area directly from the palm of their hand. Your application will reflect the same basic layout as your homepage, and readers will be able to login and manage their subscription just like they would from the website. Our applications support full integration with all of Our-Hometown's core features and add-ons, but don't worry -- we offer apps for any newspaper or publication, even if you're not using or don't plan to use any of our other services!

Our Features

We offer applications for any newspaper -- whether you are on Our-Hometown's WordPress Platform or a third-party service. We can integrate with any CMS using a simple RSS Feed.

Our apps follow the same design as the website itself so that readers know where to quickly find what they're looking for.

Publishers have full control over the structure of the homepage, with new article widget support that allows you add, remove or rearrange sections as needed.

All articles are displayed in an easy-to-read format regardless of the device being used to access the application.

Manage your app ads the same way you manage your website ads -- within AdRotate Pro! You can use the same ads for both, or have app-specific ad groups.

Expanded menu customization allows you to add links to third-party websites and social media pages as desired.

Readers have full control over what topics and categories they receive push notifications for. If they don't want to be bothered at all, they can disable all notifications.

Our apps include a mobile-friendly PDF Veiwer that allow readers to access the printed editions of your newspaper on their mobile phone or tablet.

Full paywall integration means that your premium content stays protected on the app. Content behind the paywall will display a short teaser and require readers to login with a paid account to read the full article.

Our applications now support the Custom Post Types used in our Reader Resources package for Business Directories, Events, Pickup Locations and more!

Our popular Audio Articles feature has been fully integrated into our iOS & Android applications, making it easier than ever for your audience to listen to the news while on the move.

And yes -- that includes Audio Articles Playlists! Users can tune in to a Playlist of the latest news or a particular topic to listen to a continuous stream of articles meeting their criteria.

Two Pricing Options

Our iOS and Android App 2.0 is being offered for $129/mo with the full array of features and paywall integration. However, if your site only offers free content and you do not benefit from a paywall or paid subscriptions, we also offer a cheaper Free Access App for just $99/mo. The Free Access App does not include paywall integration or any form of subscriber login.
