PETALING JAYA: For the first time, The Star is now available in its totality online across most popular operating systems and platforms.
The Star can now be read as an interactive ePaper beginning today and is accessible via tablets, smartphones (both iOS and Android systems) or even on personal computers, making reading on the go a breeze.
The digital newspaper is a replica of the entire print version but with exciting features and easy-to-browse tools.
Users of the ePaper can listen to the audio version of stories and share articles via social media including Facebook, Twitter and e-mail.
Readers can also bookmark their favourite pages, go straight to their favourite section, and zoom in and read articles in either the text or newspaper form.
The comprehensive ePaper will be available by 7am every day and will also include all editions, including those that were not previously available in the Klang Valley such as Star Sarawak and MetroNorth.
Star Publications Bhd chief operating officer, digital business, Wong Siah Ping said that maintaining the hard copy of the newspaper format online not only allows readers to enjoy the feeling of reading a real newspaper but to also conveniently do so on their gadgets amid their hectic schedule.
“Having the ePaper also allows us to reach out to places which might have been impossible previously such as those who are outside distribution areas or overseas.
“It complements the whole newspaper experience and fits right in with the mobile lifestyle of our population as they become more digital savvy by the day.”
The Star ePaper is available for free for a 30-day trial period beginning today.
“We want as many people as possible to experience what The Star ePaper is like,” Wong said.
