It's been almost five years since The Bakersfield Californian launched 661411, providing mobile-optimized news and classified advertising to Bakersfield and Kern County.
But it's time to step up our game, and we have launched new TBC Mobile apps and introduced changes that will affect how you access 661411.
As of Aug. 31, your 661411 apps will no longer work. So, we are asking our customers to download apps for TBC Mobile, which features more local news/blogs, sports, videos, photos, weather, alerts and more.
* Apple iOS and Android apps: You can download the , the or the .
* Blackberry users: Because of low Blackberry usage of our 661411 app, we have no plans to offer a Blackberry app for TBC Mobile. Blackberry users will be able to access TBC Mobile via their web browsers by visiting m.bakersfieldcalifornian.com.
* Website (WAP) users: The behavior of people who accessed 661411 via a mobile browser was completely different than those who downloaded the iOS, Android and Blackberry apps. With that in mind, we're going to keep 661411.com users happy by making our classified advertising even better for mobile users. We'll have jobs, cars, pets, merchandise, yard sales, "last chance" deals, items under $100, live traffic and weather, top headlines and a few other surprises.
Our existing 661411 apps will cease working on Sept. 1, so be sure to download the new TBC Mobile apps soon.
We appreciate your attention, your business and your support. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
