ITN First To Put Video News In The Frame On Iphone & Ipod Touch
Free application enables users to read latest stories offline
ITN has launched the first ever video focussed news application for Apple's iPhone™ and iPod® Touch which can be downloaded free of charge through the iTunes® App Store globally.
The ITN application features the latest UK, World, Sport and Fun stories in the style of And Finally, and comes complete with text, stills and high quality made-for-mobile video packages.
A key component of the service is the offline function whereby the application stores the latest stories so users can read stories on the move, even when travelling in non Wi-Fi environments such as the tube. The application also includes a feature that enables users to share ITN stories and videos with their friends with one quick touch to the screen.
Nicholas Wheeler, MD of multimedia division ITN On said: 'ITN has always been a great believer of content on the move. News is one of the biggest services on handsets and ITN has built a great reputation as a provider of high quality video journalism on mobile. We believe iPhone™ and iPod® Touch users will really value the unique video element of this application as well as its ease of use and offline capability.'
