The Reflection newspaper will now be easier to access. Since the iPads are being used regularly by almost all of the high school, there is a new app available in the app store. Cheryl Jolin, the adviser of the Reflection newspaper, just submitted the new program to Apple over Thanksgiving break; it may take a few weeks for the app to be up in the store and ready for download.
The Reflection newspaper app was created through iBuild, which is a website designed for creating apps iPhone, iPad, and Android apps. The layout was conceived with the help of two students, Alana Fletcher and Andrew Zesiger, both juniors at Gull Lake High School and on the staff of the Reflection newspaper.
The app will be very similar to the website; every article that the staff uploads to the online site will also be uploaded onto the app. By getting the app, students will be able to have up to date information on community events, what’s going on in the school and reviews on anything from restaurants to movies.
Articles are updated almost weekly, so students won’t find themselves reading the same articles over and over. By downloading the Reflection app students will be able to comment on and critique the articles that are uploaded to the site, which will help to improve the overall quality of the Reflection.
