You have asked, and we have delivered.
As loyal readers of The Bendigo Advertiser, you told us you wanted a news app. You wanted a better mobile reading experience. A live news feed. A better digital version of Today's Paper.
We listened. And after more than six months of development and testing we are delighted to be launching our brand new app with all these features, and more.
In line with your feedback, the app also provides readers with faster-loading articles and live feeds for your favourite content sections.
To make the user experience even better, the app allows for offline reading, which means you can download the headlines or Today's Paper at home and then read them wherever you are, whether that is on your morning commute, at the coffee shop or while you are enjoying some downtime at the beach.
An improved puzzles section now includes a medium and hard sudoku, a codeword, a splitword, jigsaw, a cryptic crossword and a regular crossword. For readers who enjoy playing our existing selection of online puzzles, these will still be available to access on our website using mobile or desktop devices.
Bendigo Advertiser editor Peter Kennedy said today's app launch would deliver even better value for subscribers.
"I think our readers will really enjoy being able to access their daily news with this clean, convenient and comprehensive new app," he said.
"It allows you to get the latest local, national or world news, wherever you are. Plus there's sports updates, property news, podcasts, puzzles and more.
"This is something our readers have been asking for for some time and we're thrilled we're finally able to deliver that. We hope you enjoy the new app, and we're also keen to get your feedback."
The Bendigo Advertiser app is available to our digital subscribers only. New subscribers can sign up in the app or direct on our website.
We will be monitoring reader feedback during the coming weeks and months and will continue to listen to feedback from our readers.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts or suggestions. Of course, if you love the new app please give us a five-star rating in the App Store and let your friends know about it.
You can download a handy guide explaining how to use some of the app's features here.
Thanks for reading The Bendigo Advertiser. We love our new app, and we think you will too.
