    ABC News has today released an iPad app, using an interactive three-dimensional globe on which news stories appear. This is the second iPad app to be released by the Disney/ABC Television Group, with its ABC Player app proving to be a huge success, with over 928,000 downloads and 5.9 million episodes started in just over three months.

    Users can spin the ABC News globe to find the stories that they want to read, and can then define what stories they want to have on their globe, from politics, health, entertainment, and more. ABC News' library of archival footage, "This Month In History", will also be available as an option for users to explore. Users can set up their own globe to include stories from Good Morning America, World News with Diane Sawyer, Nightline, 20/20, and This Week. Stories can also be selected to be read later, or shared with friends and family via Facebook, Twitter or email.

    Steve Jobs will also be very happy to hear that the website is now optimized in HTML5 and is available on the iPad with all features, including video.

    The app is available now as a free download from the Apple iPad App Store.
