Breeze Staff Report


For 50 years, the Cape Coral Breeze has provided a comprehensive report of happenings in and around Cape Coral.

Adding an Apple OS application to ways readers can get their news is the latest media the newspaper is using to reach readers when and where they want their news.

The app joins the printed newspaper and www.cape-coral-daily-breeze.com as ways you can get your news. All three are unique products, providing both news and special features that are unique to the media.

The huge popularity of the Apple iPhone and iPad pushed Breeze newspapers to develop the app for them first. The combined traffic that the website gets from the two devices is far more than from all other mobile devices combined. All mobile users, including those on Apple devices still will be able to access our site using a web browser. Content to the main site, the mobile site located at mobile.cape-coral-daily-breeze.com and to the new app is updated daily.

Visiting the website with any device running the Apple OS system will trigger a screen urging readers to download the app. You also can search for Cape Coral Daily Breeze in the app store. You can also visit www.cape-coral-daily-breeze.com/iphone and be redirected to the correct site.

With the app, readers can read stories, write comments, search and take polls.

“We are please to extend the reach of our award-winning and trusted newspaper to our readers who have long depended on us to let them know what is happening in their community,” said Publisher Scott Blonde. “The addition of the iPhone app gives us yet another way to serve our readers.”
