Ohio Citizen Action’s mobile site as it appears on a smartphone.

CLEVELAND – Ohio Citizen Action today launched a mobile website for those who want to check on the latest news with their smartphones. The mobile website contains an easily readable list of all recent headlines on our main website, with links to the full text. The pages will load much faster, and the font sizes and links will be much bigger. The mobile site is compatible with all major smartphones, including iPhone, Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry.

Anyone who uses a smartphone to visit the Ohio Citizen Action website at www.ohiocitizen.org will now be redirected automatically to the mobile site. For those who want to use all the features of the full website, they can choose a link to take them there.

As of last month, 45% of American adults owned smartphones, according to a Pew Research Center study. Of people between 18 and 29 years old, 66% own smartphones. More American adults now own smartphones than own feature cell phones, which can be used only as a phone and for texting. Some 34% of adults have a feature phone; 5% say they do not know if they have a smartphone or not, and 15% have no cell phone at all.
