The Belfast Live App has had a makeover

We gave the app some much-needed love, actually a lot of love. 

The hugely popular Belfast Live app has been completely updated and redesigned, and we revealed the new look platform to our 50k + users recently.

The app, which racked up 3 MILLION page views last month*, now comes dressed in a lovely new iOS 11 inspired design for iPhone users, featuring a brand new user interface, slicker, quicker loading pages and seamless ad slot integration. Don’t worry Android users, you’ll see the newness too!

Our article teasers now allow you to jump straight to the comments with a single tap, and the ability to add that article to your bookmarks for reading later. 

The app also retains customisable menus, a huge favourite with readers, and ‘breaking news’ push notifications so you get live alerts and info. as you need them (and maybe the odd promotion threw in!) The enhanced user experience includes the live blogs, video, interactive maps and slick picture galleries from before.

We’ll have much more visual treats coming soon, but for now…enjoy your new app!

Download now from iTunes or the Google Play store for Android and let us know what you think. Here’s what a few of you think so far…

P.s. you’ll see the exact same new-look and design if you’re also a user of the Mirror app.
