The Pacific Daily News has added new features to its app, delivering the news that you love, in ways you may not have expected. From critically acclaimed storytelling, photography, videos, full 360-degree experiences and virtual reality, we’re now able to not only tell the news, but allow you to be completely immersed in it. And with our local-to-national coverage, you can now add news stories happening in other local communities. The new app design has also been streamlined to give you a deeper, richer, more visually-stimulating storytelling experience so you can get in, get out, and get on with your day.
• Browse headlines and read about breaking news happening nationally and locally including Sports, Entertainment, Technology, Travel, Money and Weather with a swipe.
• Watch related videos and enlarge images.
• Share stories via Facebook, Twitter, email, or text message.
• Get notifications on news you want to know through push notifications.
• Live weather, hourly to 10-day forecasts.
• All the latest sports scores for NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS, and more.
• Simple, unified drop-down navigation.
• Flip through top daily photos of news, sports, and your favorite celebrities.
• Enable location services to customize local weather news and other location-based services. (Continued use of GPS running in background can decrease battery life.)
THE NEWEST FEATURES:
• Be in the center of where the news happens with 360-degree video and virtual reality content.
• Elect to add one of our local properties to get more community news added to your feed.
• Save your favorite stories to read later.
