New release of AP Mobile for Android available today!

It took a little longer than we expected, but we’ve made some great progress towards improving our AP Mobile for Android app. The first step was to improve the stability and performance, and I am happy to announce that we have released an update today (v3.2.3.1) that addresses both in a big way.

You will find the following in the update:

  • Dramatic performance and stability improvements
  • Improved story and photo transitions
  • Localization for Spanish/French language content and menu items
  • New AP Branding
  • Bug Fixes

You will continue to see updates shortly that include the addition of some exciting new features that are currently only available on our iOS app as well as some user interface tweaks to optimize the viewing experience and improve the overall look and feel.

You can find the app in Google Play and the Amazon App Store, and shortly in GetJar, Vodafone App store and Samsung App store.

We hope you like the update!  We are committed to becoming the best mobile news source and welcome your feedback (we can be reached at apmobile@ap.org).

AP Mobile update on BlackBerry now available in App World! We’re consolidating titles.

We are updating AP Mobile on BlackBerry with a new design and new features!

UPGRADERS:  Please DELETE the old versions of AP Mobile first before installing the new one.  This will mitigate any upgrading issues since the new app is a new code base.

New Blackberry features in AP Mobile:

- Choose to get breaking news alerts to your inbox or as a pop-up

- Share stories via Facebook, Twitter and BBM (for users with OS 5.0 and above, and BBM 6.0 and above)

- Watch AP videos

- Change regions and choose languages including English, Spanish and French

NOTE:  We will be retiring the AP Mobile World Edition, AP Mobile en Espanol, AP Movil America Latina, and just using the one title, AP Mobile.  So users of these titles should delete those versions and update to the new AP Mobile app (v3.5 and above).  The new version is still FREE!

Why are we doing this you might ask? Simple, some of the old versions do not support newer devices. Some apps were not global or have multiple languages. They did not support video, push alerts or photo galleries. It was also expensive to maintain all of those titles, so we have simplified things and will support only AP Mobile going forward. AP MObile does all of these things. The other titles and older versions will no longer receive content as of May 21, 2012.

We know that change an be difficult but this is a necessary move. We hope you understand.

As always we’d love to hear from you.
