The YourObserver.com iPhone app is now available for download in the iTunes store.

Grab the latest news, events and photo galleries for Longboat Key, East County and Sarasota anytime, anywhere, because the YourObserver.com iPhone app is here. The YourObserver.com app allows you to experience your favorite community news anywhere you go via your iPhone or iPod touch.
YourObserver.com app users can:

• Get the latest headlines of the day or filter neighborhood news by Longboat Key, East County or Sarasota.

• View, save and share must-attend upcoming events.

• Browse and view Black Tie photo galleries in portrait and landscape formats.

• View, save and share the much-read police reports from Cops Corner.

With the YourObserver.com app, you don’t just read the news — you can make it your own. Save articles to read later, and e-mail articles, events and photo galleries to your friends … all while on the go.

AtLarge Inc. created the YourObserver.com iPhone app five months ago. Under the leadership of Anand Pallegar and his atLarge team, they created a mobile app that was then beta-tested by a team of Observer Group employees.

The app was pre-launched in the Apple app store at the beginning of February and has since garnered five-star ratings.

“We wanted to create a mobile experience as smart and entertaining as Your Observer.com’s award-winning news coverage — the kind of experience that would capture YourObserver.com’s hyper-local news, events and Black Tie photo galleries in style,” says Pallegar. “Judging by the reviews and downloads, we’ve succeeded.”

  • What if I don't have an iPhone and don't ever plan to buy an iPhone? If you develop a mobile website then EVERYBODY has access to your content on their mobile phones.
