AOL intros iPad app combining mail, news, weather
Thursday, June 27, 2013 @ 3:16pm

Online service AOL has launched a new, self-named iPad app. Unlike its other apps the new one serves as more of an umbrella, letting users access news, video, AOL Mail, and weather forecasts from the same location. Categories appearing in the news stream can be customized to reflect personal interests.



Articles and videos can be bookmarked for later viewing. Sharing options, meanwhile, include Facebook, Twitter, and AOL Mail. The app is a free download for iPads running iOS 5 or later, but is ad-supported.
