Keep up with news from the WMN on your mobile phone [Western Morning News (England)]
(Western Morning News (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) With advances in technology it has never been easier to keep up to date with everything happening in the Westcountry - thanks to a new mobile-friendly version of the Western Morning News' this isdevon and thisiscornwall websites. The sites, which are packed with regional news, sport and information and are regularly updated seven days a week, have been given a complete redesign to make them easy to access, view and use on a mobile device.
That means that as well as visiting the site from your desktop or laptop, you can also visit from your mobile phone or tablet.
The sites have been designed to work just as well on small- screen smartphones as it does on larger tablets such as an iPad - and you can save a bookmark to the mobile sites onto your device to turn it into a handy app.
When you visit the "this is" Devon and Cornwall sites on your mobile device it should now ask you if you want to see the mobile or "full" desktop version - or depending on your device it may just take you straight to the mobile version.
If you don't get there straight away, you can instead go to m.thisisdevon.co.uk or m.thisiscornwall.uk to get the news in a quick, smart, straightforward format designed to work well on mobile devices. Thisisdevon's digital publisher Jon Bayley said: "It has never been easier to access all the latest news and information in Devon and Cornwall on the go - whatever device you have, whether it is an iPad, iPhone, Blackberry or Windows Mobile you will be able to visit m.thisisdevon or m.thisiscornwall.co.uk and instantly get updated." The home page of the mobile sites gives you quick access to the news and sports channels - where everything happening across the Westcountry, including content from the WMN, is updated 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
There are also sections of the mobile sites for the latest weather forecasts, jobs, homes, motors and links to our business directory, where you can find local businesses - rated and reviewed by people in the region.
The mobile site also shows you the latest comments, pictures, breaking news and what's on information as well as family notices.
Jon said: "The mobile site has all the core elements of the main site in a format that is easy to use on the go - and it is being constantly updated and improved so look out for even more innovations."
To visit the new mobile versions of the Western Morning News's websites, thisiscornwall.co.uk or thisisdevon.co.uk - scan the QR codes, to the right. Cornwall is at the top, Devon beneath. How to download a QR code reader on your smart phone 1. You must first have a web-enabled, smart phone (one that can access the internet and has a camera function) 2. Go to your phone's app store and search for "QR" or "QR readers." Look for the star ratings and read the reviews to decide which one is best for your phone.
3. Once you download a QR reader, open up the reader and scan a QR code. It may take one or two tries to get the hang of it.
4. Whenever you want to scan a QR code, you will need to open the QR reader app first, otherwise you will just end up taking a picture of a QR code.
