USA TODAY for iPad and iPad mini

Join the conversation and get the latest news you need 24/7 from USA TODAY on your iPad. The app is wonderfully simple and easy to use. Plus, it delivers even more news content than ever before. It’s more advanced, more fun and there’s much more to explore.

Here’s what’s new in USA TODAY for iPad v3.0:

Deeper, richer and more visual storytelling as well as some great new features…
- Choose your news headlines view: scan the headlines with “List” or lean back and enjoy the image-rich “Grid”
- Save your stories: Not enough time to finish reading an article? Do you have to power down your iPad on the plane? No problem, just save the article and read it later!
- Media index: Do you want to interact with the news? Now you can access a vast selection of USA TODAY photo galleries and videos. Our news is now more informative and comprehensive

You can own your news experience…

How do you read the news? The new app lets you choose your news view: “list” or “grid”. The “list” view will give you a quick scan of the news in the morning when you’re on the go, and the “grid” view offers a visual look into the day’s stories when you have more time to kick up your feet.

Looking for quick access to the sports scores, Snapshots and more? Your favorite USA TODAY features are always close at hand - you can access them via a new sliding panel on the left side of the screen. Customize the panel to fit your interests, and hide it when you’re scanning the headlines.

How about the weather? Well, it’s still cool! USA TODAY has re-imagined its weather coverage with:
- A large, resizable weather map featuring radar and satellite animation
- 10 day forecast
- Hourly forecast
- Weather alert support

Since its launch, USA TODAY for iPad has become one of the most downloaded apps. Users love its simplicity, clarity, 24/7 news updates and the ability to quickly scan the news to get ready for the day.

Our users are our priority, and we greatly value your feedback. We take every review and suggestion into consideration when designing our iPad app. If you don’t see a feature that you have been asking for, please be patient, it’s on the way!

Enjoy the USA TODAY app for iPad!

Good Quick Top Stories

I've used the USA TODAY app for 3 yrs. or so & it's good for getting headlines quickly & you can drill down into the individual sections for additional articles.
I have had to contact tech support through the app on 2 occasions, 1+ yrs apart, and both times I received responses & fixes w/in 1 business day.
Only downside for me, and it's a personal preference really, but the front page of news section will sometimes repeat the same story 2-3 times as separate articles. It seems like as different journalists provide updates instead of combining & thereby giving room for a different story. But I get it, I wouldn't want to share copy with another journalist either if this were my profession. But maybe have a HEADLINE section & refer to various other sections for continued coverage- as we do for, Life, Sports, Entertainment, etc.

....Enjoy your news!

Give iPad 1 owners a break!

The actual "latest version" for iPad 1 users is a puzzle disaster. The latest version with whatever fixes you have applied are of no use to us as we cannot load it. The one that we can use will not load today's Sudoku puzzle, especially if you have gone back to work a puzzle you missed a few days ago. The score-keeping function does not work at all. I have taught computer programming and have not seen such sloppy programming in a long time. There are millions of iPad 1 users out here and we cannot load OS 6.0 to utilize your "latest version" of this app.

Please please please fix the puzzle mechanics and give us a version we can use on the iPad 1. All your recent fixes are useless to the millions of us who still use the iPad 1.

This app DOES do a good job of reporting the news, and for this reason I give it 3 stars.


Didn't think this app could get any worse but USA Today has completely blew it with the latest version. It is hodgepodge of photos and story clips that are rediculous to navigate. Fed up! Will begin looking for something else.

With each upgrade USA Today for iPad gets worse to navigate and find anything interesting. I miss the version that actually looked like their print version. Categories were easily selectable from the header and browsing for interesting articles was a no brainier. I am continually amazed that some companies feel they have to change just for the sake of changing. If it truly improves something then fine, but if not then stay with what is tried and true. What if McDonald's changed the Big Mac every few years? Some things are better off left alone. USA Today for iPad was one of them. I used to get up each morning looking forward to reading the paper, but that excitement is gone now that it is just another news service.
