iPad app for Colorado Daily
The oldest surviving American free daily, The Colorado Daily celebrated the birth of the iPad2 by launching an app for the new device.
The app shows all pages a ‘flip-through’ mode or by viewing all pages at the same time.
Articles can be read in three different ways; by zooming in, separately in a split-screen option, or as text only. There is no search option and no sharing option. But its free of course.
The Colorado Daily started in 1970 as a free daily. The paper was founded as student paper “Silver & Gold” in 1892, adapted the new name Colorado Daily in 1953. The paper moved off campus in 1970 because of the editorial line on Vietnam. In 2008 or 2009 the paper went from broadsheet to tabloid. After many ownership changes the paper now is part of the Prairie Mountain Publishing group (Media News Group).
(The oldest surviving free daily in the world is the Australian Manly Daily, founded in 1906; The Colorado Daily is de second oldest.)
