ALBANY, Ga. — The Albany Herald and its sister papers with Southern Community Newspapers Inc. have launched new mobile websites to better serve readers using smartphones.

With “Top Stories” and “Featured Stories” sections, the new mobile sites mirror the complete sites found online, but in a format more compatible for the reader on the go. Readers can also browse by category, search content and get local weather forecasts.

These sites are not an “app,” but will be automatically detected when readers browsing on smartphones arrive at the site. SCNI papers also will soon launch sites geared specifically toward readers using tablets like iPads.

“In today’s world, we need to make our news available to readers when and where they want it, and we really do strive to give our readers access to news in any format they want,” said Robert Granfeldt, SCNI’s vice president of digital media. “This latest version of The Herald is designed to be easily read on a smartphone, and it’s a great supplement to our print and online editions.”

Odd. Here I am on a smart phone, and yet I am on the main site. That detection us sure working well.

Now, as for an app...Android surpasse iOS long ago to capture the largest mobile market share. So why is there still not an app on the Market?
