With the launch of our electronic edition app, readers of the Salem News now have a fourth way to enjoy the newspaper that has served the residents of Salem since 1889.
Every page, every story and every advertisement now will be available to our subscribers electronically regardless of where they are located. As a part of current subscribers' print subscriptions, subscribers will have All Access to the Salem News' digital products. The launch includes a new e-edition, an exact replica of the printed product, as well as a new mobile application that is able to be downloaded from your favorite app store.
"This is another way we have shown our commitment to this community to provide the local news that is part of the fabric of Salem and the surrounding areas by delivering the news in several multimedia ways and platforms that ensure our readers are the most informed in the most timely manner," said Publisher Beth Volosin.
"We now not only gather and provide local news and sports, but also ensure that it is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in print and electronically. This is truly reliable local news and sports you can trust at your fingertips 24 hours a day," Volosin continued.
In order for current subscribers to gain All Access to the digital products they can go to any local story at www.salemnews.net and follow the prompts to "Are you a print subscriber?." Then the information provided will be checked against current subscriber information. Once it is verified that the information entered matches a current print subscription, the subscription is validated and access to all digital products will be ready in addition to getting the newspaper delivered to their home.
The new e-edition can then be accessed from a link named "All Access e-edition" at www.salemnews.net. Once at the e-edition homepage the username (the email provided in the validation process) and password can be entered to upload the daily newspaper replica.
The new e-edition has features such as saving a page, section or entire copy of the newspaper to a desktop, access to the past 30 days of newspapers and even a listen function.
New and improved mobile applications for Apple or Android products are also now available. The mobile application can be downloaded from the appropriate app store and can be found through a search for "Salem News All Access." Once downloaded to a phone or tablet, the Salem News can be viewed again as an exact replica of the newspaper or viewed by story.
A digital-only subscription is also available and includes access to all of the digital products, but does not include delivery of the printed version to a home or business. Non-subscribers will have limited access to www.salemnews.net.
In addition, we have provided an information page at www.salemnews.net/allaccess that will walk a reader through the process of validating a current account or information to sign up for a new subscription.
