Home Broadcasting and Media 3 News iPad app number one on iTunes NZ

The 3 News – See It First iPad application has been the number one free app at the New Zealand iTunes Store since its launch a fortnight ago.

New Zealanders have been quick to take up the invitation to ‘See if First’ with over 10,000 downloads to date. More than 15,000 pages are being viewed each day, and those numbers continue to climb.

The app is a great way to get up-to-the-minute information from 3 News’ award-winning newsroom, including high quality video, and is easy to navigate and share.

As well as the latest news and video from NZ and around the world, the app has accurate weather information, video from flagship TV programmes 3 News, Firstline, Campbell Live, 60 Minutes, Nightline, Sports Tonight and The Nation, plus photo galleries, blogs and more.

MediaWorks Director of Interactive, Siobhan McKenna says: “It’s exciting to get our iPad app out there, and make it available to the audience in the lead-up to the general election, a time of high demand for news and current affairs content.

“User requirements are high for apps so Tom Jackson our Product Manager has taken the time and care to ensure we deliver the best news video experience on iPad in the market.

“Our audience is certainly telling us that they’re happy.”
