FRANCE 24 today launches a new version of its iOS application, compatible with all Apple mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, iPad Air and iPod Touch) available now for free on the App Store.
Adapted to new practices in news consumption, this new trilingual application (French, English, Arabic) features streamlined design and very fast video loading for greater user comfort.
Optimized for Retina Display, this version has been completely redesigned for navigation on tablets and all video content (streaming or on demand) is now compatible with the Apple TV Air Play service.
In addition to free access to articles, reports and all FRANCE 24 programs, mobile users can now personalize their navigation thanks to a new “Favourites” page that lets them create a catalogue of content and build up lists of articles using keywords. They can also use the "tweets" tab to follow the activity of FRANCE 24 news team journalists in real time on Twitter.
Lastly, thanks to the sharing tools, users can share news items of their choice on the social networks. To follow breaking international news as it happens, users can also sign up for news alerts in the language of their choice.
A pioneer in mobile broadcasts, FRANCE 24 has been available on iPhone since February 2009. The international channel was the first in the world to broadcast its programs live on these devices and launched an iPad application on the day the new tablets came onto the market.
A new version of the FRANCE 24 application on Android will be available free on Google Play by the end of this year.
