By samz

I own an I pod and I think it would be a really good idea if first news made there own app. If you agree with Thumbs Up and/or comment below thank you.

    i think that is a good idea but what would it do out of interest?

  • smokeyice (Age 17) wrote on Friday, 2 March 2012 @ 16:30

    maybe we could read the newspaper on this app

  • pipapip (Age 17) wrote on Friday, 2 March 2012 @ 16:39

    That would be a good idea cos last year, I went on my dad's iPad to see if they did but they didn't so I think they should...

    Great idea!!!!!!! They should really take it on board, I would pay for it!!!! ;) x

    Yeh I went and looked for one and it came up with something completely different

  • AquaPuppy (Age 16) wrote on Saturday, 3 March 2012 @ 11:58

    That's an awesome idea!

  • tigger1098 (Age 15) wrote on Saturday, 3 March 2012 @ 13:05

    That would be so coooool ;) There are apps for a lot smaller magazines and newspapers on my mums ipad so i think there should be an app for first news !!!!!! :)

  • shoeless27 (Age 15) wrote on Wednesday, 7 March 2012 @ 20:22

    yeah- that sounds coool

  • shoeless27 (Age 15) wrote on Thursday, 8 March 2012 @ 18:07

    ;) hey nic, PLEASE CONSIDER! But it would be REALLY hard work- but you could get paid for it. Even if it was just 80p, 35,000 readers would consider it. You could be RICH!

    Thanks for all your comments, superdog7 I don't know what would be on it, it would be up to Nic and the team. - maybe updates about what is happening where you can comment (like the website) - or an overview of what will be in the newspaper so people can have a little taster Any other suggestions.....?

    I think that's a really good idea. I'l get the word spread!

  • pinkcroc (Age 16) wrote on Thursday, 21 June 2012 @ 19:25

    Yes a brilliant idea! As you could then read first news on the go!

  • smilyfaces (Age 16) wrote on Friday, 22 June 2012 @ 17:17

    Brilliant idea!!

  • scooby (Age 17) wrote on Tuesday, 31 July 2012 @ 13:17

    :D yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!!!! That is an amazing idea! We just need enough people to comment on this article and then... who knows!!!!!! please comment!!!!!!!

  • KatKitten (Age 14) wrote on Tuesday, 31 July 2012 @ 21:17

    Yes because if you didn't have Internet acess while you were on holiday you could still go on first news

  • smilyfaces (Age 16) wrote on Wednesday, 1 August 2012 @ 13:11

    Why do you put this link on every comment? Doing that is a good idea though. More people will know about it.

  • TurtleGirl (Age 16) wrote on Thursday, 2 August 2012 @ 10:16

    That's a great idea! Would it just be for Apple devices, because I'm getting Samsung Galaxy Tab through school. If they made one it should be for both Apple and Samsung devices.

  • samz wrote on Thursday, 2 August 2012 @ 12:57

    yes i agree with you turtlegirl it's a good idea

  • TopeRonke (Age 14) wrote on Tuesday, 7 August 2012 @ 20:47

    I think they should make for phones as well. Users who have one could read it on their mobile on the bus, in the car etc as I don't have I iTouch or Tab or anything. It should be on the app store.

  • musicgirl (Age 16) wrote on Tuesday, 14 August 2012 @ 14:47

    yeah thats gr8! someone should ask nic.......

  • methebee (Age 15) wrote on Thursday, 30 August 2012 @ 18:23

    @katkitten, you would probably still need Internet to keep the website updated, as everyone on the website is using Internet connection.

  • pingozo (Age 15) wrote on Saturday, 22 September 2012 @ 15:19

    Good Idea but I still don't think I'd pay 80p for it.

  • clarerose6 (Age 17) wrote on Wednesday, 2 January 2013 @ 17:56

    I think it would be great!

  • clarerose6 (Age 17) wrote on Wednesday, 2 January 2013 @ 17:56

    But I wouldn't pay for it.

  • hannii (Age 16) wrote on Sunday, 6 January 2013 @ 11:48

    It would be cool! All different groups have an app nowadays,we could get loads of new people!
