We, at TSN, strive to be updated with the latest news (and chika), and we’re sure that you also feel the need to be updated and in-the-know. Whether you’re a young student struggling through the flooded streets on your way to school, a housewife trying to make a budget despite the ever-changing prices of goods, or a businesswoman waiting for the price of her stocks to rise up, somebody needs some sort of new information to make everyday life better.
This is where the daily news comes in.
Unfortunately, not everybody has easy and convenient access to current news and information. For instance, while most people have television sets where they can watch televised news, a lot of working people like us either don’t actually catch the early evening news, or are too tired to watch the late evening news. Honestly, I’d rather play with my kid when I’m at home.
The Philippine Star, in recognition of the people’s need for news and information, developed its mobile application to keep newsreaders updated, wherever, whenever. After all, mobile technology is perhaps the most widely used form of media these days because of the ease, convenience, and access it offers, and the news mobile application is certainly a great innovation from The Philippine Star.
Amongst the many conveniences that The Philippine Star Page Suite App offers is the feel of it. It basically feels like you’re looking at the newspaper, which is a format we’ve always been accustomed to. Strange as it sounds, reading the news in a format other than how it is on the newspaper just doesn’t quite feel the same as the latter. With the multi-article lay-out of The Philippine Star mobile application, readers can easily peruse through articles and jump from one story to another based on previews, just as they would on a normal newspaper. However, while several news articles are compressed in a single page, readers can easily zoom in or out, or just go straight to an article they want to read in full.
With its familiar layout enhanced by modern technology activation methods (a.k.a. swiping), it doesn’t come as a surprise that The Philippine Star Page Suite App offers very easy navigation. It’s so easy that anyone who knows how to read, swipe, and tap can use it easily. Basically, all the reader has to do is swipe from left to right of the screen to switch through sections of the edition, and tap on the article of interest. Yes, then read.
While many applications are developed in order to “digitize” information and other processes, people still experience problems with mobile applications that are just too complicated and should in fact come with their own user manual. On the other hand, The Philippine Star Page Suite App sounds really simple but only because using it really is. Unlike other mobile applications, this application will merely rely on a person’s ability to read, swipe, and tap. Given the urgency of daily information, this can actually be really helpful as it focuses the reader’s attention on the news and information, rather than the process of getting to the news and information.
Overall, The Philippine Star’s combination of the old and familiar layout of newspapers together with the ease, convenience and sharpness of modern mobile technology surely gives the reader a new and wonderful experience of reading the “paper.: It’s basically having the best of both worlds: a newspaper layout without the unnecessary paper spreading and folding, and modern technology without the complications and technicalities. With all its features, the reader can simply and conveniently know which streets are flooded and should be avoided during heavy rains, the comparative listing of prices of goods while in the grocery, or the prices of stocks while meeting with clients.
The Philippine Star Page Suite App truly continues its tradition of offering at a fast pace and through easy means, truthful and reliable information.
