The online smart edition allows for easy zooming in and out, scrolling, clicking on a story to read in text only form if preferred, keyword searching, sharing of articles to others and story commenting, to name just a few of the features on tap.

 

The Herald's publisher, Fairfax Media is also offering to bundle the weekend paper, plus either Friday's or Monday's edition with seven day a week access to the smart edition for $205 per year.
