Tablet and smartphone users rejoice – the Watford Observer has today launched its new mobile-friendly website.
Mobile visitors will now be automatically redirected to a mobile-optimised version of the site – making it easier and quicker than ever before to get up to speed on the latest news, sport and travel updates on the go.
News stories appear at the top of the page, with readers able to log in to their account to post a comment on a story from their smartphone or tablet.
Readers simply need to scroll down the page to read the sports headlines and the top ten most read stories of the day - or select which section they want to be taken to from the drop-down menu.
Visitors will also be able to check the latest travel updates from their smartphones and search for a new career in our jobs database.
Readers can even become a roving reporter by sending us photos and news from the field – or simply tell us about your upcoming events via the ‘send us your news’ feature in the drop-down menu.
You can add an icon to the homepage of your device for quick and easy access to the site.
But, if you prefer the look and feel of the desktop site, you can simply switch to the full website at any point at the simple click of a button.
Try it out now by typing www.watfordobserver.co.uk in to the web browser of your mobile device.
