Cape Town - News24 Users can now read the latest news on their Android handsets.

South Africa's biggest news website has launched a free Android application that allows quick and easy access to breaking news, financial headlines, sports updates and entertainment snippets.

The application, developed for News24 by 20FourLabs, also allows you to view current and 7 day weather forecasts, search for local restaurants, and a customisable home screen widget.

Other features include easy tabbed navigation, reading stories in portrait and landscape mode, and Touchscreen or TrackBall interface - with haptic feedback (vibration) option.

There are currently 4 Android handsets available in South Africa: the HTC Dream (on MTN), the HTC Magic (on Vodacom), the Samsung Galaxy, and finally the HTC Hero, launched in South Africa last week.

You can download the free News24 app from the Android Market or Leaf Open Market.
