SUMMIT, NJ - 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 the App's debut, TAPinto becomes one of a very select number of local news publications in the country to have its own App.

The TAPinto App not only features authentic local news and events -- users can customize the App experience to their local town -- 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”.

Many people of all ages now only use Apps to get their news. Through the TAPinto App, those people can now become readers of TAPinto. Meanwhile, push notifications are one of the best modes of delivery for content since they go directly to the reader, do not wind up in a massive inbox of unread emails, and are not blocked by Facebook and other social media that only show readers a small fraction of the content TAPinto provides. The TAPinto App enables the news network to deliver content to readers through these push notifications.
