The Los Angeles Times and Tribune Interactive have launched the Times‘ next-generation mobile-phone app designed to easily access editorial content and built for a broad audience. News Reader offers a customizable user interface to bring Times content to iPhones.
“Next month, our Hollywood Star Walk app will also go live, offering a robust, interactive L.A.-centric experience for visitors to Southern California and entertainment junkies,” Times Publisher Eddy Hartenstein said in a statement.
Based on user feedback, added Tribune Interactive President Marc Chase, the new app “adapts to users preferences and makes content just a click away.”
