UPDATE (4/8/09): Version 2.5.3 is no longer available at http://bb.apnews.com. Please go to BlackBerry App World to download current versions of AP News.
We’re pleased to announce a new release of the Mobile News Network (v2.5.3) for the Blackberry. The new version is available for download from http://bb.apnews.com and we recommend that all users upgrade.
V2.5.3 offers a number of improvements and enhancements, specifically:
– Additional support: we’ve added Blackberry Storm and J2ME support.
– A more personalized experience: a dialog at first launch asks for email and zip code to automatically populate your setting with local news rather than news from a default location. You can still add/delete zip codes as before.
– An easier way to share and manage content: “Send”, “Facebook”, and “Save Article” buttons are available at the top and bottom of each article.
– An improved user experience: we’ve removed the distracting “Update Progress” status bar at the top of the app and replaced with arrows in the corner.
We recommend that you delete your old version of MNN before installing 2.5.3 and then restart your device.
As always, we welcome and appreciate your feedback.
– Michael Boord, Deputy Director, Mobile Operations
