400-SCREENSHOTWe heard you, Historic City News readers in St Augustine and St Johns County — as of this weekend; we’ve made some updates that will enhance your mobile device experience when checking in for the latest, local news and information.

Our secure data center has new software installed that checks every incoming transmission to the Historic City News website. We are able to determine instantly if you are reading us from your cell phone, iPad or Android tablet, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Opera Mini, Palm OS, or other mobile device.

If you are, we will deliver an easy to read, single column mobile version of Historic City News directly to your device; without the need for you to download an app. You will receive a chronological listing of all news articles, from all news categories, complete with the photographs you’ve come to expect on our Internet properties. There are free apps available for facebook and twitter that will enhance your enjoyment and ease of use of Historic City News on those social media platforms, as well.

At the bottom of your browser, when you access historiccity.com, you will find a link that allows you to toggle between our mobile and desktop version — select the version of our website that you prefer.

In the past six-month period, our readers have steadily increased their access to local Historic City News articles using wireless mobile devices. As of June 1, mobile access represented more than one-third of the tens of thousands of daily hits to our website. We listened to your suggestions and hope you will enjoy this free new option.
