CBC News for iOS Gets Redesign, Gains New ‘Compact Layout’ and More

CBC News for iOS has gained an updated today, which adds an updated look plus more customization features.

The app now delivers more local news, adds a search capability, the ability to save articles for offline reading, plus a new ‘compact layout’ theme.

CBC News has tabs along the bottom now for Top Stories, Local, Saved and Sections. Users are able to customize their breaking news alerts by national and regions, while also enable a ‘compact layout’ theme, which makes for smaller thumbnails, allowing more stories to be shown in news feeds.

Check it out in our screenshot below–you will be able to see five headlines instead of two in this new compact layout:
