Breaking News & Weather

KENS 5 - San Antonio will turn your iPad into a news portal, covering everything you need to know in one place, in the tiny packaging of 16 MB only. This app is free, but it's ad-supported, so the interface has a panel of ads across the bottom, but they were pretty easy to overlook.

Not only will this app keep you posted on the breaking news from around the city, country, and the world, but it'll also bring you the top stories as well as videos to keep you posted.

The main interface is clean and sleek, with all the main categories displayed in thumbnails and a weather widget in the middle displaying the forecast for the coming week.
