LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) – More and more businesses are doing it, and now so are we. KPLC 7 News has launched a new iPhone application. The application allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to get the latest news, weather, sports and much more, all while on the go.

"When technology changes at KPLC we do everything we can to change as well," said KPLC News Director, Scott Flannigan.

T0 get an idea of how our viewers would like our new iPhone application we took it out for them to try.

"I am going to go download it when I get home,: said one viewer.

"IT was real good. Being able to have it right then and there is really good. You can always know what is going on locally," said Michael Williams.

One of the reasons our new application was a hit is because it is convenient. It is not always possible to be in front of the television at five, six, and ten. But, with your iPhone the news can go with you.

"I like it. It is really convenient. I like how it has the horoscopes and the weather. I also like the hurricane part because we have a lot of hurricanes in our area," said Brittany Pousson.

"It is free. We are giving our viewers a free application that will access KPLC 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
