UK newspaper group trumpets US success as app goes international

The Guardian Eyewitness Photography App for iPad has been downloaded over 90,000 times from the App Store since the iPad’s US launch on April 3rd.

The app, which aggregates the best examples of photojourmalism from around the world, notched up 50,000 iPad downloads within its first 10 days of availability.

The Eyewitness images are printed in full colour in the centre spread of the Guardian newspaper each day to showcase some of the world’s best news photography.

The app is now available for free in all countries where the iPad is on sale.

Emily Bell, Director of Digital Content, Guardian News & Media (GNM), said: “To have our app on so many iPads in the US is a fantastic achievement, and has enabled us to reach new audiences. We are looking forward to even more people downloading it now that the device is available outside of the US.”
