If you’re increasingly relying on your iPhone to deliver news, you’ll want to take a look at the Time.com Mobile app. It includes updated stories, pictures and videos from the day’s top news. Like Time Inc.’s sister iPhone app for Sports Illustrated, this one taps into content from Time.com and not necessarily stories from the iconic magazine.

From the main screen, a touch accesses any story from Time.com and includes tools to share the piece via e-mail and Twitter. The stories are optimized for the iPhone, meaning they’re sharp with easy-to-read print and fit the screen well. 

There are other features that make this a must-have app for news junkies. Time.com Mobile includes a section of the magazine’s Top 10 Best and Worst lists. These range from the entertaining to useful, such as “Top 10 Newscaster Bloopers” or  “How Not to Get H1N1 Flu.” 

Also, the app tracks notable quotes from the week, like the website and magazine, and aggregates the most popular stories into their own category so it’s easy to determine trending news stories.

If you like how Time.com presents the news, you’ll like this app. It is filled with news content.
