Singtel’s popular news app, NewsLoop, is now customised for the Apple Watch!

The locally developed app is one of the first local news and lifestyle content apps available for the Apple Watch when it launched in Singapore last week:

If you do not have the app on your mobile, here are reasons for you to download – the app enjoys over 2.2 million downloads and has content from over 600 publishers across 30 content categories. NewsLoop is also the highest rated news app on Singapore’s Apple App Store and Google Play.

Get news from trusted sources such as Channel NewsAsia, BBC, New York Times, ESPN, CNET Asia and MTV, all in one app.

Best of all for the tech aficionados, it is also available on the Apple Watch now!

Key Apple Watch features such as Glances, actionable notifications and Handoff are all incorporated into the app which is synced with the iPhone and designed for the wearable’s user interface.

You can keep track of top stories, receive breaking news notifications and key images of top articles and save them to future reading on your iPhone.

The NewsLoop for Apple Watch app can be downloaded for free on the Apple App Store.

Featuring a newly revamped iPhone and iPad user interface, NewsLoop now showcases a spiffier Dashboard with one-touch access to “Add/Manage Categories”, a more aesthetically pleasing grid-style “Categories” layout and a “Do Not Disturb” setting to manage news alerts.

If you are a news addict like I am who needs to keep yourself updated on the latest news all the time, NewsLoop now allows you to do so not just on mobile, but on your watch too.

No more reaching into the pocket or handbag for your mobile device to check the latest news alert. Just customise your NewsLoop as for them to appear on your Apple Watch.
