Salt Lake City Local News provides quick access to all the top news sites for the great city of Salt Lake City, including many that are specially formatted for the iPhone or iPod Touch screen. A great way to enhance your reading experience.
We put a lot of thought into the best collection of sites to include for Salt Lake City. It's also easy to share an article via email when you find something your friends and family might be interested in.
This application is free thanks to our advertising sponsors.
Very poor layout
Good idea to have all the news sites linked in one place, but poorly executed. The top 10% of the screen is just blank, then there's the carrier/battery info. The bottom 30% is taken up with buttons and advertisements, so you're left with only 1/2 your screen to read the news. You'd be better off just bookmarking the news site you want and using Safari.
Great news app
This app has all of Utah's major news sources together in one place. News, business, sports, and weather are easily accessible and functional.
Good idea: so-so implementation
A great idea to aggregate local news. Too bad only two sources seem to be used so far: The Salt Lake Tribune and KSTU. Hopefully they'll be adding the Deseret News, KSL and other local websites.
A few technical problems: the stories load quite slowly; once loaded they take a few seconds more to "focus"; for some reason all the SL Trib stories have a dark gray background, which makes them really hard to read.
I'll give this a try for a week or two then probably delete it if no improvements are made.
