New features in the enhanced application include offline articles, GPS-defined weather reports and increased media content such as video and picture galleries.

As well as brand new Twitter and Facebook integration that allows users to share stories, the app also features a new Report tool, allowing citizen journalists to send in breaking news stories and pictures directly to the Telegraph news desk.

Maani Safa, Head of Mobile, TMG, said: “At TMG we are committed to innovation and development so we are really excited to be launching the second version of our application, which is practical, easier to use, faster and provides more options for the user. We’ve listened to our users’ feedback and incorporated many new elements to the application that will simplify and improve usability, including the capacity to share news and read offline.”

300,000 people have downloaded the first version of the Telegraph app since it launched in February 2009. Versions compatible with Blackberry and Android phones are also said to be in the works.
