We launched new iPhone and Android apps in November, as well as a new mobile website. Not only are we updating the look and feel of these products, but we are also enhancing the feature set. As part of this new version, we have added:
• Video and photo galleries to articles.
• A photo galleries section.
• Article comments.
• Sub-sectioning so that you can easily filter to the topic areas you most care about.
In addition, these new apps retain many of the previous versions most popular features, such as your most in-depth coverage of local news, weather and sports, push notifications, article bookmarking and article sharing.
Soon, we will follow with a similar redesign of our iPad editions that will heighten the interactivity of your local news experience with more video, photos and graphics. We are also experimenting with exciting tablet-only content that we will be introducing throughout 2014.
If you are reading this on our website, we invite you to download our new apps in the Apple App Store or on Google Play. And you can access our new mobile website at m.charlotteobserver.com.
We also invite to try out our other recently released versions for iPad, Windows 8, and Windows Phone.
This is another exciting step forward in our effort to continue to deliver Charlotte Observer news and information to you wherever you are and however
you want it.
The Charlotte Observer welcomes your comments on news of the day. The more voices engaged in conversation, the better for us all, but do keep it civil. Please refrain from profanity, obscenity, spam, name-calling or attacking others for their views.

The Charlotte region is vast and diverse. The more voices engaged in conversation, the better for us all. The Charlotte Observer welcomes your comments on news of the day, but we ask that you keep the discourse civil.

- Do not use threatening language. Talk of violence won't be tolerated.
- No racial, gender or sexual-orientation name-calling.
- Do not attack other commenters for their views. Do not libel or defame anyone or violate their privacy.
- Keep your comments succinct and stay on topic. Comments that bear no relation to the story may be deleted.
- Do not add images to your comments.
- Do not report comments as abusive simply because you disagree with them. Report them only if they violate these guidelines.
- Do not post spam or advertising of any kind.

We do not monitor each and every posting, but we reserve the right to block or delete comments that violate these rules.
You can help: Notify us of violations by hitting the "Report Abuse" link. Users who continue posting comments that violate these guidelines may, at our discretion, be blocked from submitting future comments as well.
And finally, as Mark Twain said: "Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest."
Enjoy the discussion.
