Emirates News Agency (WAM) has launched a new smartphone application that allows users to easily access all of WAM's services anytime, anywhere at the touch of a button.
The app delivers news in both Arabic and English, supported by photographic and video material, allowing end users to access information and news updates as soon as the event occurs. It includes a section containing news reports – regional and international coverage – as well as a section with economic and sports news. It is also adaptable to the users' interests – be it business, economic, or sports news, among many other genres – while also providing visual support in the form of photos and videos. In addition, users will be given the option to purchase photos on the app. The app is available on the App Store and Google Play.
His Excellency Mohammed Jalal Al Raisi, Executive Director of WAM, said: "This app significantly advances our strategic objective to remain on top of the significant trends affecting the media and digital sectors. It supports the efforts of the National Media Council to meet the digital transformation process and contribute to realising our vision for the development of the media sector."
To download the app, search for WAM or وام on either the App Store or Google Play.
