SINGAPORE - Very convenient, clear-cut and easy to read.

These are some of the feedback gathered from AsiaOne iPad app readers when asked about their experience using the award-winning app.

The readers, all of whom were winners of the AsiaOne x Grease, the No. 1 Party Musical contest in April, said that the app was "very convenient", as it compiles articles from different newspapers.

Financial consultant Madam Anne Chng, 53, said: "I can't possibly be purchasing the whole range of newspapers, so when I use the app I read certain articles which I don't see in The Straits Times. That was something which attracted me to the application."

Financial consultant Ivan Chua, 35, who reads AsiaOne about three to four times a week, added that the app is an "easy read on-the-go".

The free iPad app, which was launched in December last year, offers content from 30 national and regional newspapers, as well as numerous magazines and top-ranking websites. It recently clinched an award in May at The Communicator Awards, an international awards programme recognising big ideas in marketing and communications.

According to the readers, their favourite sections to read in the app are the Business and Top Stories sections. Top Stories is a section that showcases the most read articles in the app.

Ms Genevieve Toh, 19-year-old student, said she reads the World section most since she is "more interested" in world affairs.

"The app is clear-cut and the navigation (makes it) easy to read. I didn't use to read AsiaOne but now that I've downloaded the app, I read it more," said Ms Toh.

The AsiaOne iPad app is the latest addition to the portal's suite of mobile apps, which includes smartphone apps for both Apple and Android users, as well as The Straits Times SoShiok food guide mobile app.
