We have just launched an update to The Wider Image app for iPad – an award-winning interactive experience showcasing visual insights by Reuters photographers. Thanks for your enthusiasm and feedback, which has helped drive these enhancements. Here is whatβs new:
Our #1 reader request. You can now share stories and photographer profiles through Facebook and Twitter. Your friends and followers will be able to preview the story and read the full photographer profile, for example Lucas Jackson.
The share pages adapt to screen size, so they work across smartphones, tablets and desktops. When sharing stories on Twitter, your story tweets can expand to show the main image.
Four ways to discover
The toolbar now offers four views to navigate the collection:
- Latest – view the most recent stories added to the app
- Explore – browse the entire collection through a world map and timeline
- Profiles – access over 160 photographer profiles and their stories
- My View – reflect on your favorite stories and see new stories from the photographers and countries you follow
