Get our amazing free web tablet app here and read The Star every day for FREE, writes digital editor Graham Walker.

It’s easy to download, simple to use, includes amazing ‘page turning’ technology and, the best bit of all, there are no costs or hidden charges.

This is not a free trial period. We currently have no plans to introduce any charges.

So what are you waiting for? See links and details below.

We still have a great subscription deal, also see bottom of this page, with up to 25 per cent off for those who 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, offers great free content. But the most stunning way to now read us online is on a web tablet, using our app.

Not only do you get all our usual web coverage, on an easy to navigate site, but for the first time ever you can read The Star online page by page.

It means you can read all our features and supplements - like Grassroots, our Friday community sports round up, and Retro, our popular Saturday nostalgia pull-out.

An Archive section allows you to view not only the latest edition of The Star but also past issues, all brought vividly to life with amazing ‘page-turning’ software.

You can search through all the editions using a smart keyword search tool.

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

The easy-to-navigate format makes it simple to find our Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster and Chesterfield news, sport, what’s on, features, columnists and opinion, business and national content.

It’s delivered to your tablet as soon 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.
