FOX News for iPad – the Best ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐📍

February 20, 2013

Introduction and Perspective:

For iPhones & iPads, miracelous Apple devices, there are literally over a million unique Software Applications, Apps, that operate on Apple’s iPhones and iPads. As an iPhone and iPad owner, these articles are written from an Apple user perspective. With millions of Apps available, our friends, family, followers, and readers want to know which Apps may be of interest in their world. Having downloaded hundreds of Apps, from $0.99 to $19.95 each, most under $3, This APP is definitely worth telling you about.


This App was the first News application for your iPad from the FOX News Channel. View the selection, Happening Now for a quick snapshot of all the latest news in politics, entertainment, health and more. With the FOX News iPad App – receive FOX News Alerts, the live FOX News ticker, fair and balanced headline news stories, live video, FOX News Radio; all for FREE.

My friends, family, and students know me as a bit of a "news hound" whether with my personal viewing habits, or in actually covering "news and events" as a photo-jouirnalist. (http://www.416-1100.com/SouthcoastProjects/Atlantic-Crossings-Lifestyle/). An even more exciting coverage venue: (http://www.416-1100.com/PresidentialDebate2012Election/Presidential-Debate-Lynn/)

This is an example of the LIVE TV that you may see on this FOX News App. The State of Your Health is Written all over your Face according to ancient Chinese Face Mapping. click onto this link to view the 2m:30sec Video as it was broad cast on FNC Monday Morning:(http://video.foxnews.com/v/2176333248001/)

Admittedly, this FOX App is quite amazing, in that where-ever you are, and particularly if a fast-WiFi connection is available, one may watch these two FOX news channels in the same HDTV quality as if watching on your 50" Flat-Screen HDTV. Several notes of caution:

  • Internet WiFi connection: If your "connectivity" path is slow or occupied by too many at Starbucks for example, the Video-feed may be degraded.
  • Free WiFi establishments: Many restaurants, coffee shops, public areas provide/offer Free WiFi; However, the connection speed may be terrible, meaning fuzzy screen or the signal may blink and shut off periodically. These issues are not caused by the iPad, iPhone, nor the FOX App. Its the Connectivity.
  • LTE Connectivity: If you are not WiFi connected and you are watching with LTE very high speed Network Conmectivity offered by AT&T and Verizon for example, LIVE TV whould be excellent.
  • LTE Data Plans: If you are not WiFi connected and you are watching with LTE very high speed Network Conmectivity, watching Live HDTV conlsumes lots of Data. Most "Data Plans" offered by Network Providers track your Data Usage, and bill accordingly. Periodically check your usage, to determine that you re within the Data Plan you choose.
  • Changing Data consumption habits: Changing the manner and frequency in using your iPads and iPhones, may require that you change your Data Plan, as over-limit charges may be more expensive than Increasing the data Plan;
  • Data Plan Order of Magnitude: For our personal situation, we have 6 iPhones and 2 iPads connected to AT&T’s Family Sharing Data Plan for 15GB/month. We have not reached 50% of that in Data consumption. The cost difference between a 10GB/month plan and the 15GB/month plan was $10/month; this extra $10/month I consider a "Data Insurance Premium.
  • Opinion: In my humble opinion, having and using these "magical devices" as Apple claims, is a truly wonderful thing; and requires an investment to acquire them; Therefore, USE these amazing devices, and obtain a Data Plan that permits ample ability to take advantage of the connectivity available in your area.
  • WiFi vs WiFi+LTE connectivity Options: When buying an Apple iPad, there are several options,

(A) connectivity which is a $130 one time charge to have the chip-sets for AT&T, Verizon, or whomever, which permits connectivity any place there is cellular Service, which is almost everywhere in the USA.

(B) Memory, how much Storage available on the iPad, these days (Feb/2013) the choices are 16BG, 32GB, 64BG and 128GB.

(C) Choosing the Network itself. Do some research in your area, to determine which network is Faster and more Reliable, regions are different; Its of no value that your Brother in Vermont is very happy with his XYZ Provider, when you live in South Florida, where XYZ is terribly slow.

(D) The major Provider’s Advertisments cannot be ALL be true at the same time, as each boast; Are they BOTH the Biggest and the Fastest? Cannot Be True. Check with your Friends and Associates in YOUR region to inquire as to their satisfaction with their Provider’s connectivity and reliability, droped calls etc. Check with the Apple Store in your area, as they may give guidance.

To view the actual LIVE TV Channels for either FOX NEWS or FOX BUSINESS, you will need to Login-In, to this App, by completing two simple steps:

(1) Selecting your Cable/Satellite Program Provider;

(2) Enter your user ID and Password for your Cable Program Provider, such as U-Verse, or Comcast, to name several, of the over 50 providers nation-wide.
