It's not an organization that many of us would automatically expect an official app from. Regardless, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO to you and me) has recently released its own news app.
It's an iPad-only affair but it offers all the latest news from the organization. That kind of news covers everything from important visits to the NATO Headquarters to statements on major issues in Afghanistan.
Alongside text-based news comes a number of videos from NATOchannel.tv, the official video focused site for the crucial organization.
Combined, NATO News should be the ideal portal for those in need of greater insight on all the things NATO does at the moment and some of the background information about the organization. For news hounds such as myself, it should form a great resource in times of major world news as there's a lot more detail to releases than major news networks would suggest.
NATO News is out now and it's free.
I'm amazed that no one's used the name Fanhattan before as it's an excellent name for a celebrity/movie orientated website or app. This app does exactly what would be expected of it. It enables users to find movies and TV shows from old to new across various video streaming and rental services.
Supporting many different services such as Vudu, iTunes, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Blockbuster, Amazon Video on Demand and the ABC Player, this should be a definitive app for all US based entertainment fans. If the show or movie isn't currently available to stream, Fanhattan will even state where it can be bought for shipping at a later date.
Search options means that not only is it easy to track down something particular but it's easy to browse for new suggestions too. Content is grouped into genres like Newest, Top Rated, Critic's Picks as well as Award Winners such as Emmys or Oscars. That's not forgetting regular genres like action or fantasy.
Combining everything in such a way is a neat idea that no doubt iPad owners will be keen to try out.
It's out now and it's free to download. Don't forget that the services it links to may incur further charges such as Netflix and acquiring items on iTunes. Fortunately, Fanhattan lists pricing in a detailed manner.
