Bell Media this week has announced two new free Apple iOS apps, a CTV news app for the iPhone and a TSN app for iPad.
The CTV news app features top news stories, editorial photography along with Local news, entertainment, health stories and, of course, the latest CTV television schedule.
For sports fans, Bell has introduced the TSN iPad which the company says is this week’s number one download at the iTunes Canada Store with over 20,00
0 downloads. Leveraging sports content from the TSN website, the iPad app gives fans extensive coverage of their favourite sports teams and leagues in a user-friendly iPad layout.
On the iPad app you'll find coverage of the NHL, NFL, NBA, CFL and MLB, including top stories, scores, and standings. The app also gives readers access to complete player stats and bios, detailed team information (stats, schedule, roster, player injuries, etc.) and transactions. You'll also find coverage of other sports such as golf, soccer, tennis and auto racing.
Feedback on the TSN app at the iTunes Canada Store is extremely positive with 137 users out of 146 giving it a four or five out of five star rating. The CTV news app is less well received and downloaded. Seventeen out of 30 users gave it a rating of five stars while five users gave it just one star.
