Elections news in the palm of your hand

The Mail & Guardian has launched a new smartphone app to keep the South African voting public informed in the run-up to the 2014 national elections on May 7.

The "SA Votes" app is a curated and constantly updated source for quality news articles, opinion pieces, videos and slideshows about the election. The app also allows users to access data and general information surrounding the elections, as well as comment and share content.

Editor-in-chief Chris Roper said: "As a digital first media company, the Mail & Guardian is pleased to add this new app to our diverse stable of digital products. We believe that part of our role in South African society is to educate and inform the public. We hope voters will use the app to arm themselves with the knowledge they need to vote responsibly in the upcoming national elections."

The M&G was the first African news publication available on Kindle, and one of the first to have paid-for iPad and Android editions and iPhone and Android apps.

The app is compatible with iOS (iPhone) and Android devices. To download the free app, search for "SA Votes" in Google Play or the Apple App Store, or click here for more information.
