THE wait is over for Android smartphone users.
The Newcastle Herald’s successful new app is no longer just the domain of iPhone users.
From today, Android fans can also access the Hunter’s most comprehensive news coverage from their phones.
Download the app to access breaking stories, opinion, features, entertainment and more.
It also includes a ‘‘Report’’ function, which means you can make and break the news from anywhere, any time. With the Herald, you get My News, My Way.
Since its launch in September, the iPhone app has been downloaded about 20,000 times.
To celebrate the release of the Android version, the Herald is hosting its popular My Hunter My Way competition exclusively for Android phone users.
Entering is simple: Download the app, check the ‘‘Assignments’’ section and follow the instructions to submit a photo of your favourite Hunter place.
One lucky winner will receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), which packs multimedia, communication and top internet functionality into one portable device. It features numerous Samsung Hubs and applications and a 3MP camera. A range of entries will also be published in the paper and online.
