The iPhone 4S is a hugely popular mobile phone that benefits from the massive selection of additional applications that are available from the iTunes App Store. While many people like to use this service to download the latest games and puzzles some users would rather use their phone to keep up to date with the latest news from around the world. There are several excellent news applications available but we take a look at two of our favourite apps for this superb device.
AP Mobile is one of our favourite news applications for the iPhone 4S. Many newspapers and news stations cannot afford to have journalists in every major city in the world waiting for a major news story to break. Instead these services rely on freelance journalists and many of these work for the Associated Press. These journalists and reporters deliver their stories to major channels and outlets which are in turn broadcast to the public. The AP Mobile application cuts out the middle man by delivering these news items directly to your mobile phone. As there is such a large volume of content available this application can sometimes feel a little more complex than many others that are available but it does deliver a huge selection of stories from across the globe. The application includes video links and photographic content. For people who want a wide selection of unbiased news stories and reports AP Mobile may prove the perfect application.
If you would rather stick with a more popular service then the BBC News application for the iPhone 4S is one of the very best available. The BBC are based in England but have built a great reputation for providing news on a global scale. The BBC News website features a massive selection of stories but this can prove somewhat difficult to navigate on a 3.5 inch screen and that is where the official application comes in handy. The main news stories are presented in a manner that is more suitable for a mobile display and the interface is very easy to navigate. One of the really attractive aspects of this software are the customisation options that it offers to the users. If you are not really interested in politics but you like to keep an eye on the latest sport news you can choose what content is displayed on the main page. This saves you time in finding the stories that are relevant to you. The BBC News application is available for free from the iTunes App Store.
There are several great news apps available for the iPhone 4S but AP Mobile and BBC News are two of our favourites. AP Mobile may offer a wider selection of stories but the BBC services offers a more polished interface with more in the way of customisation options.
