The Daily Telegraph will soon launch apps for the iPhone and Android devices that users can personalise, the UK newspaper has announced.
The new apps will enable users to read and share breaking news as well as check live financial data and stocks, photo galleries and videos. They can personalise their app with favourite topics and even download articles to be read offline.
Thanks to a deal with the global sports news network ESPN, subscribers will also have access to live football scores, results, tables and fixtures, and video highlights. However, ESPN Goals app is already offered free of charge for Android and iPhone users.
The Telegraph apps will be free to download for existing Telegraph print subscribers (£7 per week) and iPad subscribers (£9.99 per month), while new customers will get a one-month free trial when they register with the newspaper, paidContent explained.
“The launch of these two new apps is a significant step forward in our strategy of delivering our award-winning journalism on all the key digital devices,” said Edward Roussel, executive editor of digital at Telegraph Media Group.
