RTÉ News Now is a digital news service delivering Irish and International stories through a mobile app and TV channel on a daily basis.
As an ageing app struggling with performance issues and negative user feedback, RTÉ News Now was redesigned and redeveloped in early 2015 for mobile and tablet audiences across iOS and Android.
The release focused on improving the reliability of the service while opening up the navigation to showcase individual sections that users could easily swipe between.
Work was also completed to simplify personalisation features and interface interactions, introduce contextual guides throughout the app for first time users, and update the visual language to make the service easier to read and clearly visualize hierarchy between top stories, galleries and videos.
