The redesigned EL PAÍS app adds new features for a more intuitive experience | Economy and business

The EL PAÍS mobile application has been redesigned for a clearer and more intuitive user experience that facilitates access to multimedia content. The new version is available on Android and iOS.

The changes to the app reflect the recent redesign of the EL PAÍS website, which has risen to the challenge of today’s chaotic and relentless news flows with a more selective and orderly approach, combining in-depth stories and exclusives with breaking news and reports of new discoveries. Now, that focus on showcasing great content is reflected in the app as well.

Among other features, readers can now enjoy EL PAÍS Audio without leaving the app. Each story available in audio format or containing a podcast includes a player that allows users to listen directly.

Another new option allows users to search for news, authors, and topics through the search box. Typing “Manuel”, for example, will get you a list of stories containing that name, but there will also be tags for topics containing “Manuel”, for example Manuel Chaves (former Spanish Deputy Prime Minister), as well as EL PAÍS writers who have Manuel as their first or last name.

There is another improvement on articles that are saved to be read later. These can now be played on any device that has installed access to EL PAÍS with the same user account.

Website users and sports fans already know that the results of any given sporting event can be tracked on a dashboard at the top of each related article. Now the app also includes this scoreboard for football, basketball and tennis matches, during and after each match.

Users who already have the EL PAÍS application do not have to do anything to download the new version. If the changes do not take effect automatically, check that the update options are enabled in App Store or Google Play.

These new app features are in addition to existing ones, such as offline reading, topic and writer tracking, or for subscribers, access to the last 30 days of print editions. Users can also choose their preferred edition (Spain, Americas, Mexico, Catalonia, or English) and customize the type of alerts they want to receive.

The app is available on Android and iOS.
