AP, USA Today release rebuilt news apps
The Associated Press | USA Today
The AP released a rebuilt version of its AP Mobile news app for iPhone and iPad today. In addition to a new look (especially on the iPad, which formerly had an awkward timeline-browsing interface), the app adds a “Big Stories” section with multimedia coverage of major stories, and now includes select local stories from partner news orgs. It also sports the new AP logo in the wild for the first time. USA Today also released version 2.0 of its iPhone app, including photo and video enhancements among many tweaks. || Earlier: News.me and Readability each launched their first iPhone apps; soon, so will Bloomberg BusinessWeek.
