The Times of India, India’s most-read English newspaper and most popular news site, today announced the launch of its app for Nokia smartphones. The app, which has been available for download from Nokia’s Ovi Store for the last few days, has received overwhelming response from users.
The app not only provides the latest news from The Times of India’s unrivalled, countrywide network of reporters, but also offers the incisive, analytical and in-depth coverage that makes the newspaper the favourite of millions of readers.
Apart from national, international, business, entertainment, health, sports and technology news, the app – updated 24×7 – gives exhaustive coverage of more than 30 Indian cities and reviews of the latest movies. It also comes with complete photo galleries covering news, entertainment and fashion.
On touch phones, the app supports both portrait and landscape modes. Users can change the text size on article pages, and share articles with friends via Facebook, Twitter, email or SMS. The app is compatible with all Nokia touch and qwerty smartphones running the Symbian^3 and S60 platforms.
