Lumiappaday #125: Sky News demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| March 19, 2012 | 5 Replies

This is the official Sky News app. It’s more video centric though they do have written articles, each is partnered with a video. A really nice feature is the ability to watch sky news live. Even the low quality video looks pretty sharp but there is a medium and high quality version available too. Oddly the live video is clearer than the pre-recorded ones.  Perhaps this is to make it easier to watch when on the go.

As well as top news, you also have world news, business, politics and showbiz.

You can submit your own news as well. Demo video below – sorry lighting is poor, I didn’t have my normal set up.

Apologies that this appears to have limited availability.
