Consumers in major U.S. cities now have local news, weather and sports at their fingertips in a single app
ATLANTA — July 29, 2014 — LSN Mobile Inc., a mobile media company dedicated to connecting brands and consumers via local mobile content, today announced availability of its Local on the Go™ mobile app. Local on the Go™ builds on the success of, and replaces, LSN Mobile’s existing Local News app, providing local news, weather and sports by city, so users can stay abreast of current local events anytime, anywhere. The app is free to use on any iPhone or iPad and can be downloaded from the App Store.
Local on the Go™ aggregates premium local content for most U.S. cities, allowing users to select, save and navigate to content in their preferred location. Users can choose to use GPS to automatically pinpoint their location or search by city or zip code. Each location features top stories and up-to-the-minute sports and weather information, including:
– Local News: An aggregation of breaking news, local headlines, local news stories and story imagery from leading news sources
– Weather: Detailed current conditions, forecasts (hourly + 10-day), radar and severe weather warnings
– Sports: Headlines and scores for national sports (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, PGA, NCAA, etc.)
Content in the app is customizable based on user preference. For example, users may select their favorite sports or news provider or display topics in order of priority by city. Users also have the ability to share content directly from the app via SMS text messaging, email and social media. LSN Mobile plans to introduce additional local content in future releases of the app.
Not only do consumers have a strong emotional connection to their communities, but they rely on local information to decide what to wear each day, to check the scores of their favorite teams or to plan what to do for the weekend,” said Louis Gump, CEO of LSN Mobile. “LSN Mobile’s deep history in local media enables us to deliver the highest quality and most comprehensive set of information available, and our history in mobile allows us to package it in a way that is intuitive and easy to use. Our goal with Local on the Go™ is to provide a valuable service to consumers so they can better navigate their daily lives.
Local on the Go™ is currently available for iOS and can be used on any iPhone or iPad. It can be downloaded from the App Store. Current Local News (Local Wireless) app users will be seamlessly upgraded to the new app.
