Forum Communications offers photo gallery app

Forum Communications Co. has released a new iPad application designed to aggregate the work of its dozens of award-winning photojournalists from newspapers throughout the Upper Midwest.

The new FCC News Lens app contains more than 3,700 photo galleries comprising 44,000 photos taken by journalists in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota, aggregating the news photography of 30-plus Forum Communications newspapers. And the volume of content is always growing.

"This iPad app gives Forum Communications an exciting new platform to display the prize-winning photojournalism that takes place in our communities every day," said Steve McLister, FCC vice president for print. "We're proud of the work that our photographers do, and now we've found a way to share with you the work that all of our company's fine photojournalists do, not just the work of your local newspaper professionals."

The new app offers easy-to-use menus, touch screen navigation and key word searches. People can find the new app and directions on how to download it in the Apple store.
