Developing the App

Customise your content

Customise The Content

With more than 28 content categories across news, sport and entertainment a great way to access your favourites is to customise the menu. Simply click on the settings icon within the menu. From here you can add or delete categories and move them up or down to build a menu that best suits your needs.

Push Notifications

Push Notifications

Receive alerts to keep up to date with the latest breaking news stories. You can set which type of notifications you would like to receive by clicking on settings at the bottom of the menu.

Save stories to read them later

Save stories to read them later

If you would like to read a story later or off line, simply tap the "Read later" tab at the top of the story. Now you will be able to read stories whenever it suits you. The stories are accessed on the Saved Stories tab on your menu. You can even download all content for offline browsing, a good tip if you are about to board a plane.


Synchronise content across multiple devices

If you would like to synchronise your preferences across different devices simply sign into RTÉ. This can be done via the settings tab or why not set up an account here >
