ITN has launched a free news application for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
It is the first, video-focused news application created for the Apple products and its special offline function allows users to access UK, world and sports news when they are out of wifi range, according to a press release from ITN.
“News is one of the biggest services on handsets and ITN has built a great reputation as a provider of high quality videojournalism on mobile,” said Nicholas Wheeler, managing director of multimedia division ITN On, in the release.
The application is available to download at the iTunes’ store – and at time of writing is the seventh most downloaded free news app from iTunes.
FT.com is also looking to tap into the iPhone market with plans to introduce a new site for the handset.
