The Nation has launched an ePaper format to allow subscribers to access this newspaper in PDF format along with three other papers - Malaysia's The Star, The Jakarta Post, and the Philippine Daily Inquirer - free of charge.
Every morning, subscribers will get the new issues via any device they prefer, whether a personal computer, a tablet or a smartphone. Those familiar with reading the newspaper in print format now can enjoy reading it via electronic devices.
Subscribers can navigate through the ePaper in the same way they do with the print version. Then they can touch or click on the news story they want to see, and it will be brought up like an e-book on a device for that feature.
The Nation ePaper is now available on PC at http://thenation.newspaperdirect.com and on both iOS and Android mobile devices. Each issue is around 20 megabytes and will be available for download for seven days.
This is the latest iteration of a business model under which newspapers team up to provide their readers packages, adding convenience for subscribers. This pan-Asean initiative supported by CIMB Bank will allow subscribers in all four countries direct and seamless access to in-depth news with respective local-perspective reports.
