Google releases News & Weather app for iOS

weatherGoogle has ported over its news and weather app from Android to the iOS world.

Released on Tuesday for Apple’s iOS operating system, the app dubbed simply Google News & Weather displays the current weather and latest general news headlines on its home screen. From there, you can scroll down the screen to see a selection of headlines across different topics, such as World News, Business, Technology, Entertainment, Sports and Health.

Tapping the Weather panel at the top of the screen gives you more details on the projected temperatures and forecast for today and the next few days. Tapping a news headline opens a separate screen where you can read the full story from its original source. Simply tap a left arrow to return to the headline page, where you can swipe down so that the latest news headlines appear at the top of the page.

You can also tap the Headlines link at the top of the screen to quickly see a list of all covered topics. Then simply tap the topic that interests you to move directly to its headlines.  More
