This iOS app debuted today (available throughout the world).
View fascinating articles, images and adverts from the British Newspaper Archive for free on your iPhone. Read daily stories from over 200 years of historical newspapers, learn what happened on this day in history, discover reports reflecting today’s news and enjoy amusing snippets dating back to the 1700s.
This app provides some free content and also serves (as you might expect) as a promotional tool to encourage readers to buy access to more articles.
Users can read snippets in the app but to view in a web browser you’ll purchase access.
Finally, if you’re not an iOS user the snippets are available on the The British Newspaper Archive Facebook page.
The British News Archive is made available in partnership with the British Library.
