New AsiaOne iPad app offers more content with immersive user experience

Singapore - AsiaOne, the premier aggregator of local, regional and international news from Singapore Press Holdings (SPH), has released a new iPad app that caters to readers who wish to customise the way they get their news updates with its intuitive user experience.

The new iPad app, which can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store, offers rich content from Singapore's No. 1 news organisation, with a wide range of news and lifestyle features from SPH publications such as The Straits Times, The Business Times, The New Paper, My Paper and websites such as sgCarMart.

Get updates on local News, Business and Property developments from some of the best content curated from SPH newspapers. The Views section will carry commentaries from the various newspapers and apart from the daily news updates, the AsiaOne iPad app will also provide readers with travel updates, tips and advisories, as well as nutritional and fitness advice.

Additional features in the AsiaOne iPad app allows for more enjoyable reading. The Photo Gallery section offers a visually compelling look at news stories around the world and readers are able to quickly save and customise the categories that they wish to access easily with the Favourites tool. Individual articles can also be saved and retrieved for future reading.

The push notification function within the app keeps readers informed on breaking news updates from the region and beyond. Social media tools are also in place to allow the sharing of stories easily.

AsiaOne editor Adrian Tay said: "Our readers and advertisers have been asking about our iPad version since the launch of our smartphone app. The iPad app is vastly different from our smartphone app in terms of user experience and was designed to take into account readers' behaviours and their needs in wanting to have an app that is customisable."

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.

More content will be included in upcoming updates of the app. The AsiaOne iPad app is compatible with iOS version 6 and above.
