SouthCoast Media Group launches iPad photo app


New Bedford, MA - SouthCoast Media Group has launched its first iPad app, showcasing the high-caliber, award-winning photography of The Standard-Times.

SouthCoastToday.com/PIX features a daily gallery of a dozen to two dozen photos, showing a panorama of life on SouthCoast. Users of the iPad app can save photos to their device for use as wallpaper, or can e-mail photos to share with friends and family.

 “Our photography is a unique asset for which our online audience has consistently demonstrated an intense appetite,” said Sean Polay, product manager for distributed media for the Dow Jones Local Media Group, parent company of the SouthCoast Media Group. “The iPad is a great medium in which to experience the excellent work of our photographers, and the international draw of SouthCoast means the app will appeal to local residents, regular visitors and prospective vacationers alike.”

The SouthCoastToday.com/PIX app was produced with help from the Dow Jones mobile development team, but the daily galleries are hand-curated by The Standard-Times photo staff.
