BBC released “News mobile app for Apple iPhone and iPad“, and said “soon it’ll come to Blackberry and Android phones in addition to other devices later in the year.” BBC iPlayer and Sports apps will follow soon, featuring live TV and radio and user generated content.
“The app includes latest news banner to keep you up to date with breaking headlines and BBC News Channel streamed live to your phone so you can keep up with latest stories from newsroom. Clicking story icons displays full article on your phone. News stories include embedded video clips and social features so you can share each story via email, Facebook or Twitter feed. In article view you can either scroll sideways through each story using navigation arrows at the top or swipe the story sideways with your thumb to move to next article. iPad app uses same design, you can scroll through news categories on left hand side and personalise experience by adding, removing and re-ordering news in Edit menu.”
