The Detroit Media Partnership is out with new applications for both The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press for use on iPhone, BlackBerry and Android mobile phones. These free apps, sponsored by the Southeast Michigan Ford Dealers, give users the latest news, sports, business and entertainment headlines. Global Positioning System technology also provides users with localized weather and traffic updates based on their current location anywhere in the world.
IPhone and Android users can download these free apps directly at the Apple App Store and Android Market Web sites now. BlackBerry users must access the following Web addresses on their device: http://detnews.mlnwap.com for The Detroit News, and http://dfp.mlnwap.com for Detroit Free Press, until icons are posted at the BlackBerry App World, which is expected in the next week.
The apps were developed in collaboration with DoApp Inc – currently, the largest provider of mobile news apps in the Apple App Store. DoApp’s platform “Mobile Local News” is currently used by more than 200 television news stations, radio stations, and newspapers in more than 80 U.S. markets.
