  • Associated Press Mobile News Network

One of the more useful selections in the App Store is the Associated Press' free Mobile News Network. After a quick installation, a click on the brown fedora hat icon launches the program. Mobile News Network then displays a selection of top headlines, along with (in some cases) a photo. Along the bottom of the screen, buttons provide quick access to local, sports, and showbiz news. The Local feature can track local news for a number of locations--just enter a ZIP code, and the program will convert it into a town name. A button labeled More shows you additional categories and provides access to settings, a search engine, and saved articles.--Rob Griffiths
