Among the first News Apps available for Apple’s new platform.

News Republic, winner of “Best Mobile Media & Publishing App” at this year’s Mobile World Congress, today announced the availability of News Republic for Apple Watch.
News Republic has created a unique user experience tailored to Apple’s new wearable device. It is a UX that brings all the intelligence of the News Republic mobile experience to Apple Watch.
“News Republic has been an early pioneer on wearable devices, and we’re thrilled to extend its power to the Apple Watch platform,” said Gilles Raymond, CEO of News Republic. “The screen size required a fundamental rethink of the user experience. We believe we have cracked the code.”
News Republic for Apple Watch leverages Apple’s “Force Touch, Hand-off, Alerts and Glances” functionality to deliver breaking news via headlines and photographs in a remarkably user friendly way. Users can swipe, flick and save across devices to get a rich, custom news flow.
The News Republic app for Apple Watch provides readers with a natural extension of the highly rated, award-winning iOS app. Readers can access their personalized news feeds, begin reading articles on the watch, save articles for later to continue reading articles on their iPhone.  See the demo video here:
News Republic for Apple Watch is bundled with our flagship app News Republic for iPhone, available in the App Store now.
