Worldnow provides high-quality apps for local news TV channels. There are dedicated apps for each of those channels, designed specifically for iPhone and iPad.
These apps provide up-to-the-second news, sports, traffic and weather reports including maps, radar and five-day forecasts for convenient access from your smartphone on the go. They are extremely handy solutions, allowing the customer to get breaking news, local headlines, traffic updates, and Severe Weather updates provided by Stormtracker, as well as reliable 24/7 weather forecasts directly from the channel. If the user wishes, they can also have weather alerts delivered to their phone by SMS, subject to a prior subscription.
- Watch the latest news and weather videos
- Monitor current weather conditions and get 7-day forecasts
- Check traffic before hitting the road
- Customize the app’s menu with your favorite categories
Several prestigious channels use these excellent apps, so even if you might not know it, Redwerk might be providing the backend for the news you’re watching right now!
Putting out high-quality and feature-packed apps is one thing, but making sure that they are bug-free and operate smoothly is quite another. That is why Redwerk was contracted with the maintenance and quality assurance for many of the almost one hundred iOS apps produced by Worldnow. Some of the problems which we have to resolve on a regular basis are, for example, difficulties with the loading of the news feed, app slowdown, duplicate news or weather reports which stop updating automatically. We also extend these apps’ functionality and add new useful features. We add new blocks (e.g., advertisements) and modify existing ones according to the ever-changing requirements of the customers.
