The Watchup: Your Daily Newscast iPad app has been updated recently, to Version 1.9.3. This is a substantial update with very good news for Watchup users in a handful of countries outside the US.
The first Spanish channel, Univision, has been added as well as custom pre-loaded channels for users in the UK, Australia, and Canada.
Here’s the remaining change list items for the update:
✓ New Facebook SDK added.
✓ Tapping your Daily Newscast notifications will now always start your newscast regardless of when you tap it, with the freshest content available
All this comes on top of our recent updates that have been featured by tech blog Techcrunch, NBC Bay Area, and more recently in the What’s Hot section of the iPad AppStore:
✓ Automatic newscast now available in addition to manual newscast
✓ Schedule your daily newscast with an easy interface
✓ While your next video is loading, sharing the video just ended is easy with our new share panel
✓ Faster and easier registration process (for new users only)
✓ Non U.S. users are now asked for country instead of ZIP code
✓ Video watching improvements
✓ Various improvements and small bug fixes
Watchup is a great video news app for the iPad. It was my pick for Best Free iPad App of the Week just a couple weeks back, and it’s good to see the app is continuing to improve and add more international content.
Here’s an App Store link for Watchup; it’s still a free app.
