The Telegraph has launched a new and improved version of its news application to help Apple iPhone users keep up with the latest headlines on the go.
The Telegraph app is available free of charge, unlike some other news applications.
The application – a small piece of software installed on a mobile device – automatically pulls in the latest news headlines and weather forecasts from the Telegraph website, making it quicker and easier to see top stories and sports results.
The Telegraph app works with Apple’s iPhone, and can either be downloaded directly on to the device through the iTunes App Store, or copied across to the phone using a computer.
New features include the ability to instantly share interesting stories or pictures via email, Twitter or Facebook at the touch of a button, and access to video reports and picture galleries.
Users can also use the application to alert the Telegraph to a breaking news story. By clicking on the “Report” button, users can upload a photo and give a brief eyewitness account of breaking news.
“This new, improved app provides a really rich, multimedia news experience,” said Maani Safa, head of mobile at Telegraph Media Group. “We’ve made the software as easy to use as possible, and there are lots of features that readers will love.
“We can provide you with up-to-the-minute weather forecasts based on your current location, or show you a list of the day’s hottest news stories. And if you’re catching a flight or taking the Tube, all of the stories and photos are still available, even if you don’t have a mobile phone signal.”
The Telegraph launched its first iPhone application earlier this year, and also makes a variety of apps for the BlackBerry and handsets running Google’s Android operating system.
