Perhaps one of the most well-known newspapers of the country, The Times of India is now also available in the form of an app for the iPhone and iPad which will bring you all the news from the country and beyond at your fingertips.
This app features a stunning interface and a plethora of functions to facilitate the user experience. You’ll find it located in the News section of the App Store where it can be downloaded completely free of charge.
The Times of India takes up 16.1 MB of space on your iOS device, providing you with breaking news, headlines, trending news, and coverage from a variety of beats including Sports, Entertainment, Crime, Business, and Technology. The latter also includes details about the Mangalyaan Mars Orbiter.
Furthermore, you will find plenty of entertainment news to cater to your celebrity gossip needs, as you will find coverage from Hollywood, Bollywood, and all the regional cinemas of India.
If you are not in the mood to read, or are in a situation such as driving, you can also catch up with the news in audio format. Live audio from the Times Now subsidiary is included in this app, and works even with a slow Internet connection or 3G.

Functions & Features
There are plenty of features packed into this app to contribute to the user experience. Keeping up-to-date with the breaking news is a breeze as push notifications are sent to you as and when new stories come up.
The interface can also be customized to your preferences whether you want to change the font size or read at night or in otherwise low-light environments. There is also a favorites section where you can store the articles, photos, or movie reviews.
In order to provide offline access to articles, the app is designed in such a way that once users have opened up an article when connected to the internet, it is automatically saved on the iOS device. While this is a nice way to provide users with offline access, it also means that this app will quickly take up a lot of space.
