Surfing the App Store: (1) TV apps
I am from California, and last year, I discovered an iPod app for news from my hometown. Unfortunately, it broke down.
I finally decided to look for some more news sources. I was delighted to find some free apps for TV stations. The TV stations offer both text and video stories, and both individual news stories as well as live streaming. Along with “hard news,” I enjoyed seeing local weather and traffic reports, and it was even fun to see TV commercials. I felt like I was back at home!
These apps all came from the iTunes store.
KQED is a public TV station, and stories tend to be longer and more detailed. ★★★★
ABC7 News and KTVU are regular commercial stations. Both videos and text are shorter and less difficult. ★★ to ★★★
