By Tina Chubb - Jan 21, 2011

If you enjoy reading the news every day and you own an Apple iOS device such as an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, then we may have information that is of interest to you. The Guardian newspaper has recently released version 2.0 of its Guardian for iPhone app.

According to a recent article over at itproportal.com, the Guardian for iPhone 2.0 app – which is available both in the UK and US – comes with a few new features, including a new homepage design, support for landscape mode and new video content.

The app is being offered in the United States as a subscription free download, which is supported entirely by ads. The UK version on the other hand, will be offered as a subscription-based model. Customers in the UK will have to pay £2.99 for 6 months subscription or £3.99 for 12 months.

Flora Graham over at cnet.co.uk reviewed The Guardian iOS app recently, and said that it’s ideal for people who are happy to flip through the news by category or search specific topics. According to Flora, the app now allows you to stream both videos and podcasts, using Wi-Fi or 3G.

You can read the full review here, and read more information about the app via itunes.apple.com. Have you downloaded the previous versions of The Guardian app? If so, will you be updating?
