"France 24, one of the first broadcasters to make an application available on the iPhone, has turned its attentions to Apple’s new baby. The international news network’s application for the iPad is now available free from the App Store. iPad users can enjoy live broadcast from France 24’s three language channels, or watch the latest newscast, weather forecast and sports flash on demand. An innovative mapping tool allows users to find news based on their geographical location. The BBC has also released an iPad application, but so far it is only available in the United States, circumventing a BBC Trust investigation into the release of similar applications for the iPhone."
