Whether you are living in the UK or are a British citizen living overseas looking to catch up on the news from your home country, The Sun Mobile is one app you should consider getting on your iPhone or iPad.
The Sun is one of UK's best-selling newspapers and this is the mobile version of it, which is updated with news events, showbiz, and sports news in real-time, so you can get the most up-to-date information in various formats including videos, text articles, and photographs.
You'll find this app in the News section of the App Store, where it is available for download completely free of charge. It will only take up 22.2 MB of data on your iOS device and is ad-supported so users can enjoy The Sun without having to pay anything.
First impressions are powerful, and The Sun Mobile definitely delivers in this department, as it takes you right to the top stories of the day when you launch this app. The stories have high-definition images along with the photos and videos pertinent to the story.
There is also the ability to filter the news displayed to you either in chronological order (Latest) or by popularity (Most Read).
Gesture-based features mean that you can pull up a menu by swiping from the left side of the screen to the right. Options include All, Sport, News, Showbiz, Regulars, Scotland, and many others. The user interface is very impressive both in design as well as in performance.
