DW News Portal
By Deutsche Welle
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Stay informed - everywhere you go. Deutsche Welle's iPhone app enables you to access the latest news and video content from DW.
You can store news on your phone for later offline use. However, you need a mobile Internet connection (EDGE, 3G or Wifi) for radio programming and WiFi for video.
The DW iPhone app is free of a charge to download and use. Your mobile provider’s data transfer charges do apply.
Deutsche Welle (DW) is Germany's international broadcaster and a trusted source for reliable, unbiased news and information. DW offers television lineups in English, German, Spanish and Arabic, and radio and online content available in 30 different languages.

For better performance
You news is accessed by huge number of people worldwide, but you have to take in consideration that electricity and internet are available for very few hours a day and though people with iPhone can not find time to read your news.
So I suggest the following in your App to be effective:
1- besides your online news, provide it as text with photos.
2- another effective suggestion is the ability to download your news in pdf files for the last week at least.
OK, but could be better.
Livestream TV should give us options to only hear and see German/news. It shouldn't be in English only (for people trying to learn the language). Video/audio clips should be able to play over 3/4G instead of wi-fi only. I like the app, but every time they revise or upgrade, the app gets worst. I think the old version (long ago) was only in German, all day every day, 24/7. That's what I prefer. No English.
DW is absolutely amazing. When I want a decidedly non American perspective as well as greater in depth and broader news coverage to all issues worldwide-DW is the place to come to. The mobile app is amazing- I can watch almost everything - except video on my mobile device! If this was the case- I'd give this app a 5.
