BGR for iPhone (and iPad!) gets updated

We’re back with a huge update to our popular BGR for iPhone app and this time, in addition to redoing the app from the ground up, we’ve created an iPad version as well. We have heard your feedback and we’ve worked tirelessly alongside developer partner Sean Kovacs to improve the experience. The new app lets you access articles in their full form, optimized for a mobile device, and it also provides an enhanced gallery page that fits the iOS UI perfectly. Other notable features include the ability to view only the specific news categories you care about, and the ability to send us news tips with image attachments. We have also finally added the ability to submit and read comments within the app, in addition to a slew of other changes. We still have plans to bring an Android app to market soon but in the meantime, we’re looking forward to your feedback on the new BGR app for the iPhone and iPad — we think you’re going to love it. The updated app is in the process of populating in the App Store so it should be available any minute now.

Special thanks to our launch partner Smartcar!

BGR for iPhone updated

The recently-redone BGR for iPhone app has been incredibly popular with iOS users ever since we relaunched it, but there were a few things that could have been better. There’s a new version 2.1 update of the app live in the App Store, and we’ve listened to your feedback to make some great changes to the app. Grab the update, let us know how you’re liking it, and also tell us what you’d like to see in the next version, alright?

P.S. We’re working on BGR apps for all major mobile and tablet platforms, so if you’re not an iOS user, just sit tight — they are coming soon. More →

BGR for iPhone now available!

BGR for iPhone now available!

We were one of the first publications with a dedicated iPhone app years back, but since then the app has become a little… stale. Well, we’re back with a brand new BGR app for the iPhone and it’s completely redone from the ground up. For starters, you’re able to view the most important stories right on the first tab, in addition to all recent articles as well. We have full gallery viewing built-in, along with the ability to just view your favorite category so you only see the news you want. There’s also support for sharing via Twitter, Facebook and email, and best of all — push notifications for breaking news alerts. We made the app in partnership with Sourcebits, one of our favorite mobile development companies. The app is live in the App Store now as a free update for iPhone and iPod touch devices, and we’re working on an iPad version in addition to an Android app. Hit us with feedback in the comments so you can help shape the next update of BGR for iPhone; we promise the next update won’t take so long.

Updated BGR Mobile app now available for iPhone and iPod Touch

Updated BGR Mobile app now available for iPhone and iPod Touch

Last month we introduced the BGR Mobile app for the iPhone and iPod Touch and thanks to our awesome readers, it has definitely been a success. Nothing is perfect however — especially not a v1 app — and we’ve kept our noses to the grindstone, continuously working on improvements. We’ve also listened to what our readers had to say and we’ve done our best to juice up our i-offering as much as possible over the past month. So now we’re very excited to announce that BGR Mobile version 1.1 is ready and waiting for all you iPhone and iPod Touch-toting BGR fans out there. Sure it took a little bit longer to hit the App Store than we had hoped but the wait was definitely worth it. Version 1.1 has a bunch of tweaks such as adjustable font sizes, behind the scenes enhancements and most importantly, it loads the article reel like greased lightning. Don’t take our word for it though – hit the read link to download the app from iTunes, search BGR in the App Store on your handset, or just open the App Store on your handset to update from version 1. Oh and of course feel free to let us know how we did in the comments section.

BGR Mobile for BlackBerry…

BGR Mobile for BlackBerry…

Before we get into the BlackBerry side of things, we wanted to thank everyone who downloaded BGR Mobile for iPhone/iPod touch so far. We’ve had amazing feedback on the application and can’t thank you enough. We’re already #7 in the News category! In terms of the BlackBerry application, it is in development and since there are more variables with BlackBerrys (8300, 8310, 8320, 8330, 8800, 8820, 8830, 8100, 8110, 8120, 8130, 8210, 8220, 8900, 9000, 9500, 9530, and about 5 different OS versions — just kidding, kind of), we wanted to get one application out of the way so we can concentrate on the bigger challenges. We’re fully committed to bringing BGR Mobile to every major OS platform out there, so bear with us while we get our ducks in a row. Your wait won’t be for nothing — these applications are going to kick ass — there will be constant updates and feature additions as we go along. What we’re offering at this time so we don’t leave our beloved BlackBerry users high and dry is a BGR launcher. This will streamline accessing BGR from your device’s web browser by giving you a dedicated icon on the homescreen. We’ll keep everyone updated on the various BGR Mobile apps when we get a little closer. Thanks again!

BGR Mobile for iPhone hits App Store

It’s been a long time comin’, but we finally have lift off. We’re very pleased to announce that if you’ve got an iPhone or iPod Touch, BGR Mobile is ready to go! Ok fine, you’re mildly intrigued. But, what does the application do? To get the obvious out of the way, you can catch up on all the latest BGR posts, and if you’re feeling social you can comment on them right from the device. We’ve built in the option of using your location for comments so it will post your city and state below your comment if you choose. Always wanted to be a BGR ninja? Snap a photo with your iPhone and send it into us! We’re already working on the 1.1 version update, but for now, download this bad boy and tell us what you think.

BGR Mobile returns!

Your eyes aren’t deceiving you, friends. BGR Mobile has indeed returned. We can’t tell you the amount of emails we’ve been getting about bringing BGR Mobile back to handsets across the globe. It took some deep coding due to our highly customized web site, but the original WordPress ninja Alex King came to our rescue once again. Well, it’s back, and productivity in your work environment should effectively go out the window… now.
