Subscribers of our newspaper will find a number of upgrades and improvements at our www.observertoday.com web site.
Today marks the beginning of our OBSERVER All-Access site, which is available to all subscribers of our newspaper. The changes allow for readers to view a digital version of our print edition on their computer, smart phone or tablet.
Every page, every story and every advertisement are now available to our subscribers electronically. Along with the launch includes a new e-edition, an exact replica of the printed product, as well as a new mobile application - OBSERVER All Access - that is able to be downloaded from your favorite app store.
"Readers now can access our newspaper regardless if they are on their porch or traveling far away from northern Chautauqua Coun-ty," said John D'Agostino, OBSERVER publisher. "Since 1882, the OBSERVER has been delivering the news to our readers locally. Today, those readers have more choices in regard to how they can read us."
A link has been added to the upper right hand corner of the home page to get additional information, establish an All Access account as well as to locate the apps. A page at www.observertoday.com/AllAccess provides both information and links that will help you enjoy the OBSERVER anywhere.
In order for current subscribers to gain All Access to the digital products, they can go to any local story at www.observertoday.com and follow the prompts to "are you a print subscriber?"
Then the information provided will be checked against current subscriber information. Once it is verified the information entered matches a current print subscription, the subscription is validated and access to all digital products will be ready in addition to getting the newspaper delivered to their home.
The new e-edition can then be accessed from a link named "All Access e-edition" at www.observertoday.com. Once at the e-edition home page the username (the email provided in the validation process) and password can be entered to upload the daily newspaper replica. The new e-edition has features such as saving a page, section or entire copy of the newspaper to a desktop, access to the past 30 days of newspapers and even a listen function.
If you are not a current subscriber, you can click on the subscribe link to subscribe to both the print and online versions of OBSERVER.
An iPhone and Android app also remains available for the OBSERVER, giving readers an executive summary of the top stories of the day.
