The Record-Courier is introducing a new, mobile-friendly website for online readers.
Mobile and tablet users visiting the Record-Courier website -- www.recordpub.com -- will notice a fresh new look built on "responsive design," a technology designed to display the website on any mobile or tablet device.
"We recognize that many of our readers rely on mobile access and tablets to keep up to date with the Record-Courier," said R-C Editor Roger J. Di Paolo. "We are pleased to provide a more convenient way for online readers to get the news."
On a tablet, users will use three columns of content and advertising. Visitors will see two columns of content on smaller-screen tablets. Smartphone users will see a single column of content.
The Record-Courier has had an online edition since 1995.
As the delivery of news content continues to evolve, the Record-Courier remains committed to providing comprehensive local coverage as well as to being responsive to the needs of readers utilizing new technology.
This new service by the newspaper "sucks". Why? Because of (1) the paper puts a lock on 80% of its stories requiring you to be a paid subscriber. Of all the newspapers online, I know of a very few that do this and they are in very large markets. The record courier continues to press for you to subscribe when their stories are not complete. For example: The story about Robinson merging with University Hospital failed to menten that the hospital lost $ 10.3 million in the first 10 months of 2013. That the merger is really a "firesale" and the current CEO and his board of directors ran the hospital into the ground while the CEO and his wife lined their pockets. His management of the hospital created the cureent situation. Where can you read this for free "akron beacon journal".
Mr. Editor take the locks off the stories.......
