New app from Grain Farmers of Ontario

GUELPH, ON (November 28, 2013) – Ontario Grain Farmer, the monthly magazine from Grain Farmers of Ontario, is now available for tablets through a new app.

The Ontario Grain Farmer app will allow users to read the current issue of the magazine, access related videos, and reference articles from previous issues. New issues of the magazine will be loaded onto the app automatically at the beginning of each month to keep readers updated.

“This new app is a great way to read the magazine and access interactive content,” says Rachel Telford, Editor of Ontario Grain Farmer. “We recognize the trend towards mobile technology and want to ensure we are meeting the needs of our farmer-members.”

Readers can also bookmark and share their favourite articles through email and Twitter directly from the app. “We look forward to the increased interaction this will promote between farmers,” says Telford. “We know they already like to save and share articles by passing around the printed magazine. Using the mobile app will make sharing even easier.”

All farmer-members will continue to receive the magazine in the mail. The free app is available for download for Android and Apple tablets from www.ontariograinfarmer.ca or from the iTunes store.
