Associated Press launches iPhone news service

From the Associated Press: The AP and more than 100 of its member newspapers are launching a service today that will make news stories available on Apple Inc.’s iPhone and other mobile devices.

Among the publishers participating in the service: Advance Publications Inc., Hearst Corp., Lee Enterprises Inc., McClatchy Co., MediaNews Group Inc. and Rust Communications Inc.

I’d review the service, but yours truly still uses this old thing… sigh.

  1. Why not use the iPhone simulator that comes with the iPhone SDK?

    After it’s installed, it’ll be at Macintosh HD > Developer > Platforms > iPhoneSimulator.platform > Developer > Applications > iPhone

    At least that’s where it was the last time I grabbed the SDK; the location might have changed since the last SDK update. Then I just dragged it to my Dock after finding it the first time.

    I found the AP application to be bulky and underwhelming, which is kind of like AP in general. I couldn’t get the videos to load, but that might have been just the simulator.
