iPad app news: Telegraph Weekly launches iPad edition

The perfect news companion for ex-pat iPad owners

The Daily Telegraph newspaper has launched a version of its popular Telegraph Weekly World Edition for iPad to bring seven days' worth of news to Brits stranded across the globe.

The Telegraph Weekly World Edition is aimed at UK citizens who've moved away from Blighty and struggle to keep up with the latest crisis at Arsenal or the newest round of tuition fee increases.

The app, which costs £3.99 a month, or £1.99 for a single edition brings a week's worth of the best news, sport, business, lifestyle and arts and also shows a selection of reader comment and letters.

iPad owners will also have access to the telegraph's famous Matt and Alex cartoons as well as multimedia video and picture gallery content.

The Telegraph's sister website Telegraph Expat also provides related news for those living abroad.

The Telegraph Weekly World Edition joins an ever-increasing array of applications for Apple's tablet, including access to the full paper.

Richard Ellis, Executive Director of Editorial at Telegraph Media Group said: “The Telegraph Weekly World Edition is considered one of the most valued and reliable resources for expats, so the creation of the iPad app will ensure that UK citizens living abroad have a choice in how they consume our content – whether it is through the paper, online or with the new iPad app.”
