LEADING figures from the world of politics, sport and the arts have given the seal of approval to our website's new app for mobiles and tablets.

q star Sam Warburtos n and Hay Festival founder Peter Florence have all got behind the newly-launched FREE WalesOnline app.

The app offers the very latest news, sport and what's on and gives you the freedom to customise how you read the site, so you can read what you want in whatever order you like.

So if it's rugby you're after, it's rugby you get. Or showbiz, or football, or politics...

First Minister, Carwyn Jones, says: "At a time of change and challenge for the media, this new app is welcome news. People are always looking for quick and easy ways to access information and the traditional print media are having to adapt to keep up.

"It's good to see that Media Wales aren't afraid to embrace this change and are always looking to move forward," he adds.

The app also gets the thumbs-up from Hay Festival's Peter Florence. Peter says: "It's a totally fab way to get the skinny on what's occurring.

"It's a game-changer for a national media reach, too."

Whatever you want to read just make your choices with a few short taps and let the app work its magic - and it won't cost you a penny.

To make things easy for you we've put together a short video showing you how it works: watch our Week End editor Hannah Jones as she shows you how easy it is to personalise the site step-by-step - http://youtube/724tSs--pcY As Hannah explains: "All the usual sections are there like news, sport and what's on but what if you want a bit more business, world news, politics, education or maybe showbiz? Well now you can and in whatever order you fancy.

"It's easy to chop, change and reorder what you want to read so you just get the stories that you're interested in."

With WalesOnline's new app you have breaking news, picture galleries, Premier League football and all levels of Welsh rugby at your fingertips.

The British and Irish Lions captain, Wales and Blues player Sam Warburton has also given the new app his seal of approval: "Anyone who is interested in Welsh rugby reads WalesOnline," he said.

"The new app is a great way of personalising up-to-the-minute Welsh rugby news and views on your phone and tablet."

Now you can read Wales' best read site on the go and in a way to suit you - and keep up-to-date with what's happening in Wales at any time of the day or night.

As First Minister Carwyn Jones told us: "It's widely recognised that Media Wales titles have played an important role over the years in communicating how devolution impacts on the everyday lives of people in Wales. This new app ensures that coverage will continue into the future."

The app is free to download onto your mobile or tablet and is available now from Google Play and in the Apple store.
