This is the first Digital Issue of Rush Community News
The change from a magazine that you hold, flick through the pages, and eventually use to light the fire, has not been an easy decision for the Community Council to take. Going Digital opens up all sorts of exciting opportunities for the magazine, for our advertisers, and most important of all, for you, our loyal readers.
Getting hold of the new Digital version is easy once you know how to do it. There are three ways to find the magazine;
ONE – LET US SEND IT TO YOU
Just give us your email address, and we will send you an email on the day the magazine comes out. When you open the email, simply click on the link, and within a few seconds, you will have the magazine downloaded.
TWO—USE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA
Log into Facebook or Twitter and visit Rush Community Council. You can download the magazine right there. Don’t forget to “like” it and spread the word by sharing it with all your Facebook Friends.
THREE – VIST OUR WEBSITE
If you’re not into social media, pay a visit to www.rushcoco.ie which is the website of Rush Community Council. The magazine can be downloaded directly from the site.
READ IT LIKE A BOOK
Whether you are using a smartphone, an iPad or other tablet, or a PC, you can read Rush Community News just like a book. The book will open at the first page, and you can move around page by page by tapping the forward arrow (>) or the backward arrow (<).
You can also “flip” the pages by touching one corner of a page and swiping left or right.
At one corner of your screen you will see a little symbol like this
Tapping that symbol allows you to save either the whole publication, or just the page you are reading. So for example, if you want to try the crossword, just save that page, and print it out on your home printer.
You may also notice a symbol like this
Tap that symbol and you will get a thumbnail view of all the pages, so you don’t have to flick through every single page to find the article you want.
You will also see the little “search” symbol, that looks like a magnifying glass. Tap this, and then enter a search word to find all references to that word in the magazine. For instance, if you want to check out the latest Grow It Yourself column, just enter the word “grow” and you will see which page to find it.
You won’t need your glasses to read the magazine. Zoom in on any page by “pinching” the page with your fingers
FOLLOW UP ON ADS
If you see an ad that you like, just tap on the website shown on the ad to be redirected to the advertisers own website, or tap on their email address if you want to send them a message. Note that this facility is not yet available on all the ads.
