Have you gotten your Apple Watch? If you have, one of the apps that you can try out is the Singtel Newsloop. Personally, I like Newsloop app. Now, if you can read the news from the wrist, wouldn’t it be cooler than the rest?
Get the latest news on your wrist with NewsLoop for Apple Watch
Singtel today announced that its popular news app, NewsLoop, is now customised for the Apple Watch. The locally developed app is one of the first local news and lifestyle content apps available for the Apple Watch when it launches in Singapore today.
With over 2.2 million downloads, over 600 publishers and 30 content categories, NewsLoop is the highest rated news app on Singapore’s Apple App Store and Google Play. It was named “one of Singapore’s essential apps” by Stuff magazine in 2014, and ranked “one of the world’s best apps” by HardwareMag in the same year.
Synced with the iPhone and designed for the wearable’s user interface, NewsLoop now incorporates quintessential Apple Watch features such as Glances, actionable notifications and Handoff to offer users a highly customised and convenient multi-device app experience. Users can keep track of top stories, receive breaking news notifications and key images of top articles and save them to read later on their iPhone. The NewsLoop for Apple Watch app can be downloaded for free on the Apple App Store.
Featuring a newly revamped iPhone and iPad user interface, NewsLoop now showcases a sleeker Dashboard with one-touch access to “Add/Manage Categories”, a more visually appealing grid-style “Categories” layout and a “Do Not Disturb” setting to manage news alerts.
Curating content customised on users’ preferences, NewsLoop presents the latest in local and international news and a myriad of top trending lifestyle topics ranging from luxury, health, beauty, to sports news and tech news.
