APP OF THE DAY: Sky Sports News (iPad)

iPad apps, Tech Digest news

Sky Sports News is now available as a dedicated iPad app, making full use of the larger screen offered by Apple’s tablet devices.

Replacing the rescaled iPhone app, Sky Sports news for iPad gives users the ability to stream live and catch-up TV video content, and makes use of a timeline-like UI to show you the ebb and flow of the day’s breaking sporting news stories.

There’s also more standard sporting news app features like fixtures, results and tables, as well as hand-picked editorial content from the Sky Sports News team.

“The Sky Sports News App is the latest exciting development in the evolution of Sky Sports News, which is now bigger and better than ever before,” commented Andy Cairns, executive editor of Sky Sports News.

“We aim to be the ultimate sports news service for our customers, and thanks to this new app we can provide them with the latest sports news and in-depth coverage, wherever they happen to be.”

As with Sky’s other live TV apps, Sky Sports News for iPad is free if you subscribe to one of the broadcaster’s TV packages. Otherwise it’s £4.99 a month.
