L.A. Times releases iPhone app for mobile news reading
The Los Angeles Times has released an iPhone and iPod Touch newsreading application. The new app, which costs $1.99, allows users to keep track of the latest news and photos in real time.
The app is broken down into several main sections, including the latest headlines, photos, Tweets from The Times and a constantly updated feed of local news from the L.A. Now blog.
Users can browse through The Times' individual sections -- including each section's blogs -- and save stories and photos under the Favorites section for later viewing. There are built-in functions to share stories on Facebook, Twitter and via e-mail.
Later this month, The Times will put out its Hollywood Star Walk app, which will guide readers around Los Angeles from an entertainment perspective.
