ABC News iPad App is Impressive

by on July 23rd, 2010

The first iPad app released by ABC was their ABC Player which allowed users to access ABC TV shows right on their iPads. Too bad it was restricted to the USA, but we wrote a tutorial on how to get around that. The latest addition from from this major US network is their new ABC News iPad app. It’s available in Canada as well as the USA (no restrictions here!).

Here’s the ABC News description:

your world. in your hands.

The ABC News interactive globe gives you a new way to dive deeper into the stories that matter most to you.

Information Gets Interactive:

SPIN the globe with a swipe of your finger

SHAKE your iPad to shuffle the articles and videos

TOUCH any image to read or watch the day’s news

FILTER the globe by selecting your favorite topic or show

SAVE stories to “My Favorites” to read when you are offline and on the go

SHARE the buzziest stories through Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail

ENGAGE with the ABC News coverage you’ve come to trust on our fully optimized site for your iPad

A cool part of the ABC News app is that when you start the app, there is an interactive globe that contains popular news stories. You can just swipe and navigate to stories and read them right within the app. There’s also video content. The app is very extensive and is an example of what other Canadian news networks should learn from if they want to make a killer news app.
