ePaper Mirrors Print Edition, with Added Digital Features for Reading on Desktop, Laptop, Tablet or Mobile Device

The Boston Globe today launched "The Boston Globe ePaper," a new digital replica edition of the Globe newspaper featuring new interactive functionality, enabling subscribers to enjoy the experience of reading the Globe print edition, but on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device. The Boston Globe ePaper is available on BostonGlobe.com, as well as in the iTunes store as a standalone iPad and iPhone app.

"The Boston Globe ePaper allows us to put the actual newspaper into the hands of readers who prefer the print version of the Globe, but may be traveling, or live outside of our delivery area, or perhaps just prefer to read their newspaper on a tablet," said Christopher M. Mayer, publisher of The Boston Globe. "It further broadens the Globe's digital portfolio and complements our other digital content offerings, including the web site BostonGlobe.com, the GlobeReader, Boston.com and our mobile apps."

The Boston Globe ePaper is formatted like the print version of the Globe, including the same sections, articles, photos and page numbers, so navigating the ePaper is similar to reading the print one, but with digital features. The new digital replica edition is powered by NewspaperDirect's SmartEdition technology and replaces the first generation Boston Globe Replica Edition.

"With the Boston Globe ePaper, we are extending our digital content on all available platforms, in as many formats as possible," said Jeff Moriarty, vice president of digital products for The Boston Globe. "BostonGlobe.com is already optimized for the iPad, but this app gives users another choice - to download and navigate the entire daily newspaper in an application designed for that purpose."

Unique features of the Boston Globe ePaper include:

  • Availability as a standalone iPhone and iPad app in the iTunes store and on Newsstand
  • Offline reading capabilities
  • A digital page turning feature
  • Page and article printing capabilities
  • Bookmarking
  • Ability to access back issues
  • A navigation bar to scroll through sections, as well as a search option to find specific stories
  • A text-to-speech feature to hear articles, or the entire paper, read aloud
  • Advertisements in the same layout as the newspaper, with clickable phone numbers and URLs
  • Available at 5 a.m.

The Boston Globe ePaper is available for free to all Boston Globe print and digital subscribers. Readers can download it at BostonGlobe.com. Single copy purchase of the app is available on iTunes for 99 cents per issue or $14.99 a month. Globe subscribers can access the iPad and iPhone app for free.

Readers who subscribed to the previous e-version of the paper, the Libre Replica edition, have full access to BostonGlobe.com and the new Boston Globe ePaper.
