Today we're announcing the newest release of our iOS app. It's designed to work natively on the iPhone, the iPod Touch, and the iPad.
As you may know, the ProPublica app provides on-the-go access to all of ProPublica's latest stories, our long-term projects, and even our daily links to the best investigative journalism from around the web. And once you've launched the app, all the articles you see are automatically available offline. If you're on the subway, out of range, or on a flight, you'll still be able to catch up on ProPublica's latest work.
Our app has been downloaded 18,000 times since it launched earlier this year, making it one of the most downloaded free apps in the "news" category in Apple's app store. ZDNet's Jason Hiner recently praised the iPad version of the app, calling it "excellent" and one that played "to the iPad's strengths."
The new version -- 2.1 -- includes significant speed improvements and bug fixes. It fixes a bug that was making some stories fail to download, so we really encourage everybody to upgrade. Current users can find the upgrade in the "App Store" app on their phones, or via iTunes on their PC or Mac.
Don't have the app yet? Get it from Apple's site. And if you like the app, please be sure to write a review in the iTunes store.
