Reading on your iPhone can be a chore, mostly because your iPhone is so small and words can be so big, especially when writers make them into sentences and then paragraphs. From there, people start writing blogs, and everything just goes downhill — unless you have a great RSS app to help you keep all that reading in check. Feedly is making reading on the iPhone that much more enjoyable though, even if you do still have to contend with all those words and sentences and things. (more…)
My iPhone isn’t my go-to for reading anything. I really think the screen is too small and there are so many products on the market that have reading wrapped up. But sometimes I still find myself with a few minutes to spare and want to catch up on my Google Reader RSS feeds, with only my iPhone in sight. What to do?
Luckily, Newsify has come to my aid, with an elegant and dead simple app that has made my iPhone a reading destination for me, not just a last resort when I’ve got nothing better to do and no better e-reader on hand. Read on to find out why I’m so enthusiastic about this little app. (more…)
I am always trying to stay in the know when it comes to technology. I just love reading about it everyday and seeing what is up and coming. This is where something like Google Reader comes in very handy. I can pull in all the news stories from all the different websites I read and have it all in one place. Definitely a great way to get your news if you get it from many different sources.
But this review isn’t about Google Reader, but an application that is very similar to it and yet offers a ton more features — Reeder for the iPhone. For those of you that don’t know, Reeder has been around for a couple of years now and I have used it on the iPhone for a long time. It’s a great app to use to browse the news and save for later reading when you are on a bigger screen.
Recently, we posted a head-to-head match between Pulse and FLUD, two attractive and innovative new readers for the iPhone. Today we want to get your input on which unique news aggregator you like best.
Our contestants are Pulse News Mini, FLUD Mobile, Reeder, Taptu and News360. All of these are quality attempts at versatile, customizable and design-conscious news readers and all are free with the exception of Reeder.
Cast your vote on the right and tell us which app you think is the best, then leave a comment below ranking those that you’ve tried. Obviously, we couldn’t list every news reader on the App Store so feel free to write in your favorite if we missed it!
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Rainbow RSS Reader. The developer describes Rainbow RSS Reader as an easy to use newsreader app designed to make your information easy to understand and quick to get a hold of. It is wrapped around a single timeline that keeps all your information up to date and a very intuitive and comfortable way of reading single news items and moving between one item and the other.

We all have a favourite News source. One that appeals to our political sensibilities, our sense of what is important, or simply our desire for readability. The most discerning of us probably check at least one more source (even if it is The Onion) and this can be a pain, requiring you to open a variety of Apps or, heaven forbid, a site on mobile safari…
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was an App that could amalgamate all your favourite News sources and present them to you in a supremely accessible form? ‘Yes’, I hear you say, ‘but it would have to be brilliant for me to actually change the way I get my news…’
I’ve got an App you might like. It’s called Pulse News Mini.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of the iPad for me has been the richly interactive new ways it has brought to consume content. There is simply no better experience for reading the news from your favorite sources than that provided by the host of innovative iPad apps.
I spend a lot of time on the Internet, and that means that I have dozens of bookmarks on various browsers, which can take me a long time to prowl through. One easy way to get through all of the sites is to use an RSS feed reader to comb through the text.
So how do you get those feeds onto your iPad? One option is PRO RSS FeedReader, a simple way to access all of your text with the convenience of Apple’s favorite tablet. But better yet, it does Twitter, too. Let’s take a moment and see what makes PRO RSS FeedReader the app to have.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting PRO RSS FeedReader. Developer description: “PRO RSS FeedReader as Getting your Feeds via PRO RSS FeedReader for iPad is easy.
