OldNews USA now supports Chromebook, including devices without a touchscreen



It has been a while since my last blog article, so let’s get caught up. Since returning from the RootsTech conference in February, I have begun work on the iOS app as well as continuing to enhance the Android app. Most of the changes in the latest release were to improve the appearance and use of OldNews USA on devices with large screens, such as Chromebook. Yes, OldNews USA now supports Chromebook, including devices that do not have a touchscreen!

The latest release of OldNews USA also contains an updated newspaper database, since the Chronicling America website continues to add new newspaper titles and additional issues for existing titles to its collection. There are currently 11,781,887 newspaper page images available across 2219 titles.
