FTR Now Available on Apple News

Memphis, Tenn. — Fishing Tackle Retailer, the business magazine of the sportfishing industry, is now available on Apple News. FTR joins the likes of Field & Stream, The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic and Outdoor Life on the world’s most prominent smartphone news app.

“Apple News is a fantastic app,” says FTR Digital Editor Joe Sills. “It’s my favorite way to get the news without the added commentary that social media requires. And, instead of waiting on a Facebook algorithm to show you the news, you can get notified on your phone when a new story appears on our website. It doesn’t just work for FTR—you can also follow thousands of leading news sources from around the globe quickly, with the push of a button. It’s the closest thing to a customized, personal newspaper that you can get on a mobile device.”

Launched in 2015 with the release of iOS 9, Apple News pulls news stories through the web and builds a customized news feed for you. iOS users can click here to read FTR on Apple News. A simple “like” will continue to place Fishing Tackle Retailer on your news feed.

“We’re ecstatic to expand FTR to Apple’s platform,” adds Sills. “The move puts us in great company and gives readers a stress-free way to stay up-to-date on business news, new products, and conservation issues that affect the world of fishing tackle.”
