DW - Breaking World News

By Deutsche Welle

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Get unbiased, international news and information on the world’s most pressing issues. The free DW app for tablets and mobiles keeps you up-to-date with the latest headlines and in-depth coverage of everything from business, science and politics to arts, culture and sports.

The DW app provides you with the information you need to shape and understand your world – quick, direct, uncomplicated and completely ad-free right in your hands.

Arab world
Our TV highlights are available on the app via live stream and on-demand – like the award-winning and most successful youth talk show in the Arab world Shababtalk. It’s hosted by Jaafar Abdul Karim, who always goes after taboo topics like sexuality and religious tolerance. The latest coup is a new partnership with Al-Basheer from Iraq – the online satire show on YouTube is now being broadcast on DW (Arabia).

DW is a household name in countries like Tanzania and Nigeria, where listeners have turned to our radio programming for news that they can rely on. Due to low-bandwidth around the region, offline and text modes for better accessibility remain one of the most important features for this region. Access to already established audio (radio) programs is also a priority. In addition, our content in 30 languages makes it easier for local audiences to get the news they want. The app also offers direct access to video content and live streams. With programming like DW News – which offers a regional focus for African issues – and Eco@Africa, DW ensures that viewers get information they need.

Our TV highlights are available on the app via live stream and on-demand, ensuring that viewers in Asia can access content whenever and wherever they want. DW News provides a regional focus on issues that are relevant to Asia audiences. Conflict Zone puts political leaders in the hot seat to get to the bottom of current issues. And Euromaxx shows the diversity of art, life and culture in Europe.
