Almost 14,000 readers have got it already. It’s easy to download - just follow the links and details below, writes digital editor Graham Walker.

We also have some great subscription deals, see bottom of this page, if you want to get the traditional paper version of The Star.

The Star web site - here at - is our top platform for digital news, sport, features and commercial highlights, including jobs and property.

With exclusive on-line video, audio and slideshows, attracted 7 MILLION people to look at 55.5 MILLION pages last year.

Now, a stunning new way to look at us online is by using an iPad, Kindle Fire or Android web tablet, using our free tablet app.

Not only do you get all our usual web coverage, on an easy to navigate site, but with incredible ‘page-turning’ software you can now read The Star, page by page.

You get all our features and supplements - like Full Time, our Monday sports round up, and Retro, our popular Saturday nostalgia pull-out.

You can choose to read The Star that way or like a web page, where you also get all the video, audio and other usual web features found on our desktop site.

And it’s delivered not through your letterbox, but direct to your fingertips, first thing every morning. You don’t even have to get out of bed.

We also bundle with it The Green Un, our sports title, which is delivered to the app minutes after final whistle every Saturday. It’s a stunning edition to our deigital portfolio.

An Archive section allows you to view not only the latest edition of The Star but also past issues. You can even search through past editions using a smart keyword search tool.

And if there’s any edition or page you want to keep, simply download it. You can even read these later when you are off-line.

The app includes a digital version of the latest edition, which is updated throughout the day with all our breaking news and multi-media extras, including video, audio and picture galleries.

You’ll get our Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster and Chesterfield news, sport, what’s on, features, columnists and opinion, business and national content.

It’s all delivered to your tablet as the paper is published.

So if you are looking for an in-paper classified bargain or a specific advertisement, including a job, you will be among the first to spot it here.

And the best bit? It’s free!
