Major update for CBC News app, now allows for offline reading
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has updated its CBC News iOS app, calling it a major update. In April the app added Apple Watch support, and in May the app was updated for bug fixes.
New in this build:
– Weather is back! On the main page you will now see a weather icon in the upper right section of the screen. You can tap on this to get forecast details as well as set up new areas to follow.
– Save stories offline.
For each story heading you will notice a new bookmark icon. Selecting this will save the story to your device either for later reference or when not connected to a network. Images, photo galleries as well as video content is not currently saved. Saved stories will be available at the top of the menu.
– Image descriptions in photo galleries will remain on the screen until dismissed or a new image is selected.
– Sharing to Facebook will now share the article properly
– Some more tweaks and improvements
