Sunday Business Post launches daily website

In a very smart move, the Sunday Business Post has re-launched its website as The Daily Business Post . It’s a nice clean design with a mix of news and comment.

The Daily Business Post

Updated between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday, the website is one part of a range of new digital services, which includes iPad and iPhone apps.

Articles from the Sunday Business Post print edition are still on the site, but have been put behind a paywall with a range of subscription options. SBP content is updated at 12am each Sunday.

Heading up this move is SBP Technology Editor Adrian Weckler who has been appointed to the position of Digital Editor.

I think it’s safe to say the Monday Business Post is a thing of the past.

RTÉ launches News Now app

RTÉ has recently launched the News Now app for the iPhone/iPod Touch.

News Now is an apt description for this. If you click on ‘Top Stories’ it  delivers the latest RTÉ News, Sport and Entertainment stories from RTÉ.ie using a simple and readable layout.

As well as text stories, the app shows the latest live RTÉ News TV bulletins, weather, stocks and currencies through the ‘Watch Live’ function. You can also watch the Morning Ireland webcam (with radio stream) from 7am – a great accompaniament for the commute (not with the iPod touch though!).

You can download the app for free from the iTunes store here
