Following on from the massive success in covering the 2011 local government elections, News24 has launched the first local dedicated iOS and Android elections app to provide users with all the authoritative information and results from the 2014 national elections.

The app focuses on breaking news, multi-media visuals, user generated content (especially on voting day), mechanisms to check whether you’re registered, registration and voting information, daily polls, party information and ongoing opinion and in depth analysis.  The app will also offer the live results map that News24 had huge success with during recent elections (including a previous results overlay showing results in comparison with the live streams for 2014).

The app is currently available to download for free across Android and iOS devices.

“The news around a national election changes minute by minute.  News24 focuses on breaking news but with this election we wanted to take it one step further and offer a dedicated application to voting savvy users which would ensure that this momentous election was covered in as much detail and as effectively as possible,” says Jannie Momberg, News24’s Editor-in-Chief.

Some of the highlights of the app will include:
•    Breaking news and commentary with live updates
•    Multimedia galleries with user generated videos, News24Live interviews and timelines
•    Daily features including topics like who to watch, what to watch, where to watch
•    On-going opinion and analysis
•    Basic election know-how: Party 101, registering 101, voting 101, candidates, results summaries and election histories
•    Timelines, multimedia, features and profiles.
•    On-going user generated content including articles, photos and videos, and a ‘contributions by map’ view on election day.

News24 will also be offering extensive election coverage through their dedicated election pages at
