KTRE app available for free for iPad

iPad users can now view their local news in high definition with the new KTRE 9 iPad app.

The app has been available for iPhones and other smart phones for a couple years, but became available for the iPad on Thursday.

"Our users love the smartphone app because they can get the latest breaking news as it comes to us," said Jeff Awtrey, Internet director for KTRE. "We're really excited now that iPad users can see the app the way it's supposed to be seen on tablets."

The app features the top local stories, a weather radar and videos.

A KTRE News app and KTRE Weather app are also available for all smartphones.
