Check out The Record’s new tablet site now!
The new site is designed for ease of use and to better highlight recordnet.com content on your tablet device.
You can browse the stories, photos, videos and other features that matter to you.
On an iPad, the first time you visit the site, you’ll get a prompt telling you how to bookmark the site on your iPad home screen:
On Android, there is no immediate prompt. But Android devices allow you to do the same thing.
First, you have to add the site as a bookmark. Then, find the bookmark in your bookmarks and hold your finger down on it.
From there, you’ll see an option to “Add shortcut to home screen.”
The screenshot above is the front page, as viewed on an iPad. At the top, it displays the four top stories of the day, with images and lead paragraphs. Use your finger to scroll through the four stories.
The key icon at the top shows readers how many clicks they’ve used of their monthly limits (3 if you are a non subscriber and not registered).
Click on the key for subscription information.
If you prefer to view the whole site on your tablet device, we also still have that option. Just click on the gear icon and choose your site experience.
If you click on the icon with three horizontal lines, you’ll find many options, including signing up for alerts, visiting our Limelight Deals site and viewing local weather conditions (left).
You can also search the site for previous articles.
Below the four top stories on the homepage are feeds (left) for local news, photo galleries, sports, business, lifestyle and entertainment, videos, user-generated MyRecord content and obituaries.
Scroll with your finger to find more content in each of these sections.
At the bottom (above right) are feeds for opinion, popular stories, state and national/world news.
A highlight of the tablet site is the photo display (seen below). Clicking on a photo gallery will take you to a new screen where you can scroll through images using your finger.
You can also share content via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and email, or choose to buy the photo.
Clicking on a video will take you to a new screen (above) where you can view the YouTube video.
We hope you enjoy the new recordnet.com experience on your tablet device.
