London Evening Standard Mobile App Now Available


This may not be an app to interest all our readers, but for anyone interested in the news in London and southeast England, this is definitely something you'll want to check out. Powered by Handmark, the London Evening Standard is now available in a free mobile application for your BlackBerry device. To be honest, actually getting the application was a little tedious, as it required me to go through the Handmark system and create an account. Once I had done that, however, the application was a breeze to install, and Handmark sent me an email with the details for future reference.

What really impressed me when I launched the app was a brief "tutorial" on its use, It quickly runs through the navigation and shortcuts of the application, without having to dig into menus to find that info, or learn through trial and error.  This is definitely a feature I would like to see in more consumer applications.
