The UK’s second best news app, but it’s free so still worth a download
The Telegraph Review
by on May 30, 2010
The Telegraph was the first national newspaper in the UK to release its own dedicated iPhone app. However, the paper’s forward-thinking news app came under fire from loyal Telegraph readers at launch because the experience was slow and little bit clunky.
Yet a number of updates since then have ensured that the app is by far the best way of accessing the quality news and sport content on the go.
While most other UK newspapers (The Guardian excepted) seem to be dragging their heels when it comes to embracing new ways of engaging their readers through smartphones and the web, the Telegraph really seems to have somebody in charge of its mobile division that knows what they are doing.
The app is well laid out, easy to navigate and looks a hell of a lot nicer than the paper’s website, which is all a little bit busy for our liking.
There is a ton of regularly updated video content on here too, which helps it to stand out from the crowd of hundreds of other news apps vying for your attention.
Finally, the app’s iReport feature lets anybody become a citizen journalist, so if you happen to see or know about a breaking story you can take pictures or write a story and send to the Telegraph news desk immediately via your iPhone.
