TAPinto.net  has launched a free TAPinto App for iPhone and Android, enabling readers to obtain their local news and events in a fast, easy-to-use application. With this launch, TAPinto becomes one of the only local news publications in the country to have its own app.

The TAPinto App not only features news and events, but also enables readers to receive push notifications regarding breaking news, noteworthy events and other important information, as well as special offers from local businesses.  Readers can download the TAPinto App for free in the Google Play Store and the Apple Store by searching for “tapinto” or “tapinto.net”.

People of all ages now only use Apps to get their news, and through the TAPinto App, they can get their local information from TAPintoSPF. Meanwhile, push notifications go directly to the reader but do not wind up in a massive inbox of unread emails or filed in a junk mail folder.
