Sky News for iPad is launched


Sky News today launches Sky News for iPad, a completely new way to experience breaking news and live video.

The interactive news service was designed specifically for iPad and has claimed the top spot in the charts for news apps on the Apple platform.

A dedicated editorial team produce real-time updates, expert analysis and interactive graphics for those who want to keep up with breaking news on the go.

Users can select from live and on-demand video and then dive deeper through supporting graphics, photo galleries, graphs and articles that provide extra context and analysis.

One of the key features of the app is the ability to rewind live video, even if users have missed the beginning of the story.

The live video is immediately available to replay once it finishes.

John Ryley, Head of Sky News, commented: "We pride ourselves on being an innovative, brave and mould-breaking news service, and work hard to give our audiences access to news on their terms.

"Having delivered content across digital, online and mobile, iPad was the next logical platform on which to break new ground.

"With more and more of our viewers embracing mobile devices to stay connected to the news, the launch of Sky News for iPad is one of the most important developments in Sky News’ history.

"We wanted to bring users more control and flexibility to how they view and interact with the news they want. The result is Sky News for iPad."

Sky News for iPad is free to download and available now.
