We have just launched our second iPhone app in the App Store, which provides feeds from our site and iPhone settings for every NZ carrier, among other things. We are charging for this app so that we can give something back to the people of Christchurch following Tuesday’s deadly quake. The App is priced at $2.59 until the end of March and all proceeds from our cut of the sales will go to the NZ Red Cross (30% will still go to Apple, which we cannot avoid). Why not download it now to give to the Canterbury Earthquake Appeal.
Remember you are not paying for the app itself, you are paying to donate to the NZ Red Cross.
We’ve called the app ‘iPnz News and Carriers Settings’ and it lets you read the latest news, comments and forum posts (in feed format) from the site and also helps you set-up your device for your network of choice in New Zealand.
News, Forum, Comments, YouTube and Twitter Feeds are available as well as the ability to view stories on the mobile site for iPhonewzealand.
The app replaces the old ‘NZ Carriers’ app (the one with the blue icon) which is no longer available on the store. Instead, as mentioned, the NZ Carrier Settings are now included in this app and as the settings are stored locally will always be available on your device so long as you have the app installed.
Oh and yes, we know it’s not Retina enhanced. We’re not coders, but we wanted to get an app out there to help solve the carrier settings problem as well as provide an alternative way to access our content from your iPhone, so the app was built with AppMakr which doesn’t currently offer the ability to include Retina images. We hope you’ll forgive us!
If for no other reason than to make a donation to the Red Cross, please download the app now.
