A sweet news app for the good people of Asia Pacific - Channel NewsAsia for BlackBerry 10

If you are in the Asia Pacific region and you like to keep up to date with the news, then you need to download the Channel NewsAsia app which is free. The app is available for all BlackBerry 10 smartphones and it runs like a dream.

The user interface is typical BlackBerry 10 and with it comes all the features you would expect from a BlackBerry news app. Once you launch it, you'll see that there are three main tabs at the base of the screen. These are 'Latest News', 'Singapore' and 'Asia Pacific', so you can easily jump into the section you want. The news stories are listed with a photograph and headline and it's just a case of selecting the one you wish to view.

Once the story is full screen you can simply change the font size using the 'Resize' tab. Hitting this will pull up a blue bar which you move left and right depending on the size you require. Either side of the resize tab are arrow tabs. These allow you to swiftly jump to the next news article - or back again.

If you fancy sharing an interesting article then that too is integrated and you can share via the accounts in your BlackBerry Hub. You can even update your BBM status with the article, which although a nice touch, certainly isn't a feature I would use.

Within the main menu are a selection of further categories if you fancy filtering news by technology, entertainment etc. You'll also find a video and photo section here. One final item that is in the main menu, which surprised me is 'Weather'. I'm loving the fact that users of the app can check out the forecast without having to leave the application.

Channel NewsAsia is a perfect example of how a BlackBerry 10 app should be - user friendly, smooth, bursting with features and has a beautiful black user interface.

This is a very good app. Gives news headlines, detailed news and is very well set out. The font adjuster is unique and is a brilliant addition. Hope we get more apps like this for sports/markets/entertainment, etc.

Awesome App !!
The font sizing slider feature is just awesome , I wish Blackberry could use this slider font sizing function in Adobe Text flow which only has two font sizes. as a medical professional I read a lot of medical PDF's on my phone !! Great app
