Al Arabiya News has launched its new app for BlackBerry® 10 smartphones, giving readers faster and easier access to the latest news and thoughtful analysis on Middle Eastern affairs.
The app, available through the BlackBerry World storefront, “will offer the most optimal content viewing experience and ensure our content becomes even more accessible and available for influential decision makers who need to conveniently access their news and analysis while on the go,” said Faisal J. Abbas, Editor in Chief of Al Arabiya News.
Abbas said: “Users of the app will be able to benefit from all of our existing features and sections, such as our ‘View More’ video-on-demand service which enables users around the world to access Al Arabiya News Channel bulletins and flagship programs with full English subtitles and transcripts.”
The Al Arabiya News app works perfectly on the new BlackBerry® Passport, a new unconventional device purpose-built for productivity with a boundary breaking design.
