This entry was posted on Saturday, January 12, 2013.
The nominations for the Academy Awards this year have just been announced, making the film awards season go officially under way now. Quite appropriately enough, the Oscars app for the iPad has been updated as well, and its updated content can keep its users completely up to date with the latest news and media leading up to the 85th Academy Awards ceremony on the 24th of February.
The Oscars app is not just any old app trying to piggy back on the high profile nature of its subject. Instead, it most certainly lives up to the high standards of the Academy, with a lot of high quality images and video, interesting interviews and some intriguing facts about the most high profile event in the world of films globally.
Here are some more of the features of the updated Oscars app for the iPad, along with a timeline about when the new content will come along:
