Google has a new app for iPhone and iPad users called ‘Google News & Weather‘ that presents local news and weather as well as headlines from a variety of categories and sources in one app. Categories for headlines can be added or removed from within the app for customizing the news you want to follow. Previously, Google News & Weather was only available for Android users.
The app joins a huge list of existing Google apps including Gmail, which was just updated for the new iPhone 6 display sizes yesterday, and Google News & Weather is already optimized for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
