Irrespective how bad or upsetting it is, it’s still in our best interest to keep in touch with current events. Sure the news isn’t always good, but we still have to know what’s going on right. Now, seeing as the fast paced world of today tends to rely largely on being mobile, mobile news applications can, at times, take precedence over even the good old newspaper. So for the average user always on the go, the mobile phone is the only source of information anytime, anyplace. It’s not like we have town criers all over the place shouting “hear ye, hear ye, and today’s latest is…” We have readable and video content that’s now easily streamed on your phone with the latest news.
With that in mind here are a few free iPhone apps for getting the latest news on your mobile.
From our very own home of Network 18 we’ve got the IBN Live up front and centre. Pardon us for blowing our own horn, but the IBN Live app does come across as a rather comprehensive new centre application for the iPhone. Not only can you get all the latest content in an easily readable format but this app packs in all the comprehensive updates from the country in a Live TV option, photo galleries and news clips. ’Spreading the news’ is also an easy task as you can send news that you consider relevant and share-worthy with your social networks like Facebook or Twitter right from the app. Stories can also be saved for a reading at a later time. IBN Live for the iPhone also allows you customise the home screen with all the sections that appeal to you for quick access. You can even receive live news alerts and Cricket scores.
For international news Newesr is an amalgamated application that aggregates content from a variety of news sites into a single easy to read interface.
