The new Courier iPad app has proved a hit with readers who are revelling with the latest way to get the their Calderdale news.

As well as the Courier website, which is updated with breaking news as it happens every day, the iPad app contains additional exclusive content, including several top columnists.

Fiona Roberts of Stanton Close in Brighouse is one of the many who have purchased the app and says she loves the revoluntionary way of getting the Courier.

“I’ve had the app for a while now and I look at it most days to see what’s going on,” she said.

“I thought I would try it out while it was free but having used it I think I would probably pay for it.”

Fiona said she was particularly impressed with the page viewing function - which allows subscribers to flick through Friday’s newspaper page-by-page, exactly how it appears in the print version.

“I like that you can chosen which page you want to go to, which means you don’t have to look at pages which are not of interest to you,” Fiona said.

“I work in a school so I tend to use it on a night when I get in, but I think it’s good for people who want to stay up to date if they work away from the area of if they go on holiday.

“I didn’t buy the Courier every day when it was a daily but this way I can still get the news every day.

“It’s a bit like anything, it takes a bit of getting used to but I would say it is very much like a kindle.

“At first it was strange that you were reading a book without actually holding one, and I think it’s the same with reading the newspaper on an iPad,” Fiona added.

“I would certainly recommend it to people,” she added.

If you are an iPad user, just go to the App Store and search for Halifax Courier to download the app.
