Madeira News app launched
After becoming GDPR Compliant, with the necessary privacy policies and “cookie” warnings in place to comply with new legal requirements, the blog has now become fully mobile friendly for tablets and smartphones with the launch of a new “app” for news from Madeira. The app can be added to your tablet or smartphone home screen for immediate access, and pages load more quickly than viewed in a traditional browser. In addition there is also the “Accelerated Mobile Pages” version of the website that has been available for a year or so, which cuts down on the overheads for mobile devices and makes viewing even more speedy. Full details here.
