Well, the mobile formats continue to roll out – with Google launching AMP, Facebook opening Instant Article, and Apple opening Apple News! We’ve completed our AMP integration on the site, submitted to Facebook for permission on Instant Article, and we’re happy to announce that we’ve been accepted into Apple News!
If you’re on a mobile device, just click the news button below, and you’ll be able to read our articles.
These formats are specific to each platform to ensure the experience is optimized. If you’re a publisher and wish to make your content available on Apple News, you can sign up on News Publisher on iCloud.
If you’re running WordPress, you can download the Publish to Apple News WordPress plugin. Once you apply for the program and install the plugin, you will get approved and asked to submit some stories. The plugin requires you to fill in some API settings, and then you submit the stories. You’ll receive another email if you’ve been approved and from there on out, your articles will automatically be published to News.
Along with our amazing mobile app from Bluebridge, we’re excited about the continued growth in readership and engagement we see via mobile. Mobile readership is growing much faster than any other medium – so it’s imperative that you take advantage of these tools to broaden the reach of your content!
