The Guardian’s Eyewitness app for the iPad has been downloaded 90,000 times since launching on the US App Store last month, according to Guardian News & Media.
The Canon-sponsored app, which showcases the Guardian’s photography, is now available on the UK store and is the second Apple app the title has launched.
Emily Bell, outgoing director of digital content at Guardian News & Media, said, “To have our app on so many iPads in the US is a fantastic achievement that has enabled us to reach new audiences. We’re looking forward to even more people downloading it now the device is available outside the US.”
The Guardian iPhone app was the company’s first paid-for mobile product and has been downloaded more than 100,000 times since it launched last November.
Guardian News & Media hasn’t announced plans to launch mobile apps on other platforms, such as Android and Ovi, but has launched a mobile-optimised version of its website.
