Interfax launches iPhone apps

Interfax has launched two iPhone applications - one for politics and public interest news and the other for those interested in business and financial markets news.

The "Interfax" app brings users real-time news, articles and photos published on the www.interfax.ru website. This contains our "fastest" news wire and, if you have time, you can browse the day‘s main events in five categories - politics, economics, society, culture and sport.

The "Finmarket" app is a compact package of stock and currency market data, backed by the latest news and analysis. Its unique design gives you a clear picture of data which usually require special terminals to analyze.
