American news agency the Associated Press launches two news apps on App World. AP Mobile world edition utilizes location-based services to deliver localized news. AP Móvil América Latina brings localized news to 20 Latin American and Caribbean countries in either Portugese or Spanish.
AP Móvil América Latina delivers news to 20 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Upon choosing their region, users receive news, weather and other information in Spanish or Portuguese specific to their chosen location.
Both releases are built with Super App functionality and provide highly contextualized, efficient and tight integration with native BlackBerry apps. Leveraging the BlackBerry Push Service, the apps keep users informed of important breaking news. Users share news articles via e-mail or SMS, or post to social networking sites. The app will run in the background unless the user exits the app. While in the background, the content will be updated 3 times a day at 6 a.m., 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. to keep content fresh.
