InnoPub Media, the Cebu City-based new media startup that runs this website, released today the app on the Google Play Store for free download to Android devices. The startup is still working on the iOS version for iPhones and iPads.

The app includes breaking news alert notifications. With the feature, those who installed the app will get immediately notified whenever posts breaking news alerts or updates like the daily Cebu News Digest.

The app allows users to read the latest stories even after going offline after an initial connection to download content.

“News is better on mobile. We think that the breaking news notification feature, which isn’t offered by any of the apps of Cebu news organizations, is very useful to readers. In building, we have discovered that there is a hunger for Cebu news and content and we hope that our recently-released app will help those who live in Cebu or those who have an interest in Cebu keep up with the latest news and updates,” said Marlen del Mar-Limpag, editor.
