Sky News App Review

Sky News AppSky News application
Price at time of writing FREE

As I write this Sky News tops the charts for free news apps. The Guradian app tops the paid apps.

Obviously this app relies on a web connection as it is mainly provided to give you up to date news.

It's a simple but useful little app for bringing you up to date with the latest headlines (world news, UK news, sport & politics), together with video bulletins. Other features include access to the blogs of the Sky News team and the opportunity to send your own news report (with a photo) to the sky news team using a simple to use form.

For free there isn't much to moan about apart from the fact I have to agree with the criticism from some users that an irritating banner ad at the bottom of each news page has to be one of the most irritating page-obstructing ads ever. Hopefully somebody at Sky may eventually agree this reduces the enjoyment of this app.
