As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the UK, the Cambridge Independent is committed to bringing you the latest facts and government advice.

We understand that not all of our readers will be able to venture out to get their weekly newspaper from the shop. We have therefore developed an app which can be downloaded for free and read on either your phone or tablet.

The IM News app contains the latest breaking news from our journalists as well as a digital version of the Cambridge Independent, which can be read with the swipe of your finger.

As part of our service to our readers from today we are making the IM News app available for free for a month.

Once installed and opened you will be greeted by a map of England with location markers for every county where Iliffe Media, the independent publisher of this newspaper, operates. If you tap your county you will have the option to read any newspaper published by Iliffe Media in that county. You can then select the Cambridge Independent and tap ‘Take me to the news’.

On mobile you will now be taken to the latest breaking news, leisure and sport content from our newsroom, available at your fingertips. If you tap the ‘paper’ tab you can also choose to read editions of the Cambridge Independent, pages are swipeable and can be made larger by pinching and pulling the screen. There is also the option to download the newspaper so you can read it offline at your leisure and a full archive is available at a touch.

The app also features the newspaper's e-edition
