APP WATCH: Sky News for iPhone updated

14 March 2012

Now with the look and feel of the iPad news app

If you have an iPad, you are probably well acquainted with the wonderful Sky News app, an eye-catching download that packs plenty of interactivity too. If you don't own the bigger Apple mobile, you can get a taste of what it's about with the updated Sky News for iPhone app.

It's not quite got the punch of the iPad app, but it's not far off. This new incarnation has the look and feel of the iPad app, but, of course, adapted to the smaller screen. So plenty of galleries and timelines, video coverage of stories and live blogs, as well as real-time updates from Twitter. But this is more than just a lick of paint.

New stuff too. That includes live TV over 3G and Wi-Fi, headlines, showbiz and weather bulletins, a new technology news section, improved navigation (using a simple swipe) and the option to make the news - by sending in your breaking news story directly into the Sky Newsroom via 'Your Report'.

Andrew Hawken of Sky News Digital, said: 'This is a big step forward for our iPhone app. We are constantly striving to make the user experience the very best across all our platforms. I know our customers will enjoy the more intuitive approach we’ve created within the app as well as the richer and more in depth news experience it offers.'

Go get it now if you have an iPhone, it's free to download.
