by on December 9th, 2010

The death of newspapers aren’t coming anytime soon. Not when you can read them on your iPad, right? Postmedia Network, the company behind The Vancouver Sun and The Province in Vancouver, has launched 10 different newspaper iPad apps.

The following iPad newspaper apps are available:

The Vancouver Sun iPad app combines our best stories, photos and videos to create an interactive reading experience for iPad users. In each edition you will find in-depth local, national and international coverage on topics that matter to you and your community.

See a story you want to keep? You can download articles for future reference. You may also save stories or entire sections to read when you’re out of wireless range.

Find a story you’re passionate about? You can share all of our stories via Twitter, Facebook or E-mail. You may also comment on stories using the same great commenting system we feature on our websites.

Want to find out what people in your community are interested in? Our unique “Popular Stories Around Me” feature allows you to map what stories people are reading on a local, regional, provincial and national level, as well as where they’re reading them.
