You can now find NPI’s Cascadia Advocate on Apple News for iOS and macOS Mojave

Through­out The Cas­ca­dia Advo­cate’s now fif­teen plus years of exis­tence, we have always tried to make its con­tent as acces­si­ble as pos­si­ble. For exam­ple, we’ve always offered the full text of the most recent posts through our RSS feed.

And when Face­book and Twit­ter came along a few years lat­er, we made it pos­si­ble to dis­cov­er con­tent from this blog through those social media plat­forms.

Today, we’re hap­py to announce that The Cas­ca­dia Advo­cate is avail­able through Apple News. If you’re an iOS, watchOS, or macOS Mojave user, you can now read our lat­est posts from with­in Apple’s News app. Pret­ty cool!

To ensure The Cas­ca­dia Advo­cate appears in your list of favorite news sources, do a search for “Cas­ca­dia Advo­cate” in Apple News and tap the heart-shaped Love but­ton to make it one of your favorites.

What we like the most about Apple News is that it pro­vides a superb read­ing expe­ri­ence, espe­cial­ly on mobile, where con­tent is opti­mized for both the iPhone and the iPad. Apple News also makes it easy to keep read­ing after you’ve fin­ished a post by show­ing you oth­er recent and relat­ed posts we’ve pub­lished.

We also appre­ci­ate that Apple News is not a vehi­cle for data col­lec­tion like apps from oth­er big tech­nol­o­gy com­pa­nies we could name.

As the tech giant explains in its mar­ket­ing mate­ri­als: “Apple News uses on-device intel­li­gence to rec­om­mend sto­ries and access­es your infor­ma­tion only with your per­mis­sion, nev­er shar­ing it with oth­ers. And we don’t allow adver­tis­ers and pub­lish­ers to track you — so only you know what you’ve read.”

Apple News was orig­i­nal­ly intro­duced for iOS in Sep­tem­ber of 2015. Late last year, it became avail­able on Macs with the release of macOS Mojave.

Last week, dur­ing a glitzy event at the Steve Jobs The­ater, Apple announced an enhanced ver­sion of Apple News, News+, which includes sub­scrip­tions to a num­ber of mag­a­zines and news­pa­pers (although not nec­es­sar­i­ly unfet­tered access to all the con­tent pub­lished by those mag­a­zines and news­pa­pers) for $9.99 a month.

The Cas­ca­dia Advo­cate is avail­able through the reg­u­lar Apple News app and does not require a sub­scrip­tion to News+ to enjoy. Although there is no pay­wall, if you want to sus­tain our research-dri­ven advo­ca­cy and keep the analy­sis and com­men­tary flow­ing, we do invite you to become a mem­ber of the North­west Pro­gres­sive Insti­tute. You can donate month­ly or week­ly at a lev­el you choose.
