BBC News App, Playstation hits Android

Here’s https://www.compareandrecycle.co.uk’s round-up of the latest technology news:

BBC Launch iPhone and iPad News app

The BBC have launched their new free iPhone and iPad News app.  The app was originally planned to launch back in April but faced delays which held it back until last Friday.

This isn’t the only app planned by the BBC who are looking to launch both a BBC Sport and iPlayer app in addition to an Android version of their News app.

Playstation on your Android phone

New Android app PSX4Droid isn’t the first PSX emulator for a phone but it is the first time you can play your favourite Playstation games on an Android device.

Since you’ll need to know how to track down the games yourself it won’t be suited to everyone, but for those who know what they’re doing it’s a great chance to play some of the best games ever made on your phone. Another great reason to buy an Android phone!
