The excellent USA Today for iPad app has been updated, to Version 1.5. The two big additions are crossword puzzles and customizable markets and stock listings:
– Crosswords are here! The Crossword game has been added to the Life section. Play today’s crossword puzzle, or any from our two week archive. Includes all the features you’ve come to expect with crosswords: game timer, hints, support for landscape and portrait orientation, double-tap squares to toggle between down and across hints.
– Markets and Stocks have arrived! Customizable Markets and Stocks listings have been added to the Money section. View details for Dow Jones, S&P 500, and NASDAQ as well as your customized portfolio of stocks. View charts ranging from 1 Day to 5 Years for any market or stock. Perform quick searches on companies for at-a-glance overviews.
I’m not a follower of the markets, but I’ll definitely be giving the crosswords a go. Once again, nice to see an already stellar app getting regular and useful updates. You can check out my recent review of USA TODAY for iPad here: http://ipadinsight.com/ipad-app-reviews/review-usa-today-for-ipad/
And you can grab this latest version of the app in the App Store now, and it’s still a free app.
