3. Push notifications

We don’t use notifications for just anything, however when there is breaking news or a traffic and travel alert in the area, you will be alerted by the push notifications.

4. One-tap news

No need to browser search for us to find our website. Just tap the app and you have local news at your fingertips.

5. It’s free

We know local news needs to be seen by everyone, so our app, just like our website, is completely free. You won’t get pushed into any “in app purchases either” or find any gated content, it’s all the good stuff. 


If all that sounds as great as we think it is, you can download the app for IOS and Android here, or search “Stray Ferret” on your device’s app store.
