And it couldn’t be easier.

Everyone who downloads the app from the App Store and enters our competition will go into the draw to win.

The Fairfax Media award-winning app is easy to use and great for keeping up with all your Illawarra news on the go. It has dedicated news and sport sections, as well as blogs, photo galleries and videos.

It also has a great feature that not only lets you read the news but also help create the news.  Using the app’s report function, you can easily send us news tips and photos.

Mercury editor Alistair Langford-Wilson said: “As The Mercury continues to expand and improve our web site, readers are responding in record numbers every month. Now, our new iPhone app will allow them to stay in touch with what’s happening in the region even while they are on the go. 

"Better yet, it also allows them to play an active role in our coverage by submitting tips for stories that we can assign to our team of professional reporters and photographers, which remains by far the largest in the region.”
