Evening Standard for iPad
All the latest news in an easy-to-read format
If you live in London or the South West area then you’ll find this app to be highly informative. While the iPhone version is rather cluttered, it truly shines on the larger iPad thanks to good design and layout and very easy-to-read text.
There are five separate categories to choose from: News, Business, Sports, Showbiz, and Life and Style, as well as the option to look at any previous stories that you have saved. Video is also included, although we were unable to view anything as the pad stated it wasn’t enabled for HTML5 delivery.
When held in landscape mode all the latest stories are displayed down the far left side of the screen, and it’s a relatively simple task to scroll through for older stories. Topics of interest can be mailed or linked to Twitter and Facebook and there are two different font sizes for easier reading.
While there are ads on every page, they aren’t too intrusive and it’s difficult to complain when you’re getting regular information for absolutely nothing. It is fairly sterile in its look and design, but as a quick, easy to use news source it’s still highly useful.
Yes there are ads and it’s definitely suited for iPad users, but this remains a handy app for up-to-the-minute news.
