Channel NewsAsia is now available to even more consumers of premier programmes with today’s launch of its universal iPad and iPhone application (app).
Building on the popularity of its current iPhone app, the new application features a real time news ticker, full screen photo galleries, location-based weather forecasts, polls, multiple personalisation options and social media integration. Users can also interact with the newsroom directly by sharing user-generated content from within the app.
Articles can be downloaded for offline reading and users can build a favourites list, saving articles for up to three days. Scrolling through the TV programme listings and setting reminders for favourite shows allows users to keep in touch with what’s happening on Channel NewsAsia.
Catherine Dickie, Assistant Vice President, Digital Product Development and Marketing, says “This iPad/iPhone app gives consumers a choice to effectively take Channel NewsAsia with you wherever you go.”
