The Mail Tribune has launched a mobile-friendly edition of the online newspaper.

Readers accessing content via mobile devices can find updated headlines at http://m.mailtribune.com.

A similar service is available at the Mail Tribune's sister paper, the Ashland Daily Tidings, at http://m.dailytidings.com, as well as at other regional newspapers operated by both papers' owner, Ottaway Newspapers Inc.

The service reformats Web site information so it can be viewed easily from a cell phone or other small-screen mobile device.

"Seekers of news and information in our markets should be able to access our content on the platform that either they are most comfortable using, or that is most useful to them at the moment they need to be informed," said Sean Polay, Ottaway's product manager for distributed media. "We aim to serve the reader, and these mobile-friendly sites are a big step forward on that front."

Ottaway operates eight community media groups around the country that are made up of eight daily and 15 weekly newspapers, several lifestyle magazines and other niche publications and a multitude of affiliated Web sites in seven states.
