News feeds and dedicated coverage of the general election are being offered in an updated version of the Sky News app for the iPhone.
The app provides live video streams direct from the Sky News Channel and will keep users up to date with the hottest election topics and breaking news.
It will also contain historical facts and statistics about elections of the past.
Additionally, users can look at their local constituency for information on candidates and key issues, making use of the phone's integrated GPS.
Sky hopes that iPhone users will keep the app by their side on election night in order to get minute-by-minute updates as the results roll in.
"We have now seen over 1.3m downloads of our iPhone application and the addition of the live channel and general election content is another step forward in cementing mobile as the third screen for our customers," said BSkyB's David Gibbs.
