The Globe and Mail's new app

We're pleased to announce a new app available for iPhone and iPad.

Download or update now via iTunes.

An Android version of this upgrade will be available in the coming weeks.

Reader feedback and audience insight has been central to this evolution. Over the last year and a half, we gathered feedback from readers in weekly focus groups and online surveys, and through prototype testing.

Based on this audience insight, the apps were designed with three guiding principles in mind:

· To deliver both speed and stability through proven technology

· To provide subscribers with full access to all Globe and Mail articles and sections

· To continue to evolve the digital experience in response to reader feedback

Prelaunch testing shows significant improvements in terms of speed and reliability. In addition, Globe and Mail app users will enjoy:

· Alerts to help you stay on top of breaking news

· In-app purchases – a digital subscription gives you access to all Globe content, including subscriber-only features, both in app and on
