The Early Edition 2

The App Store's most beautiful news reader, giving you complete control over the content you see, in a form you'll enjoy. Watch the video demo at

The Early Edition 2 is a beautiful, up-to-the-minute newspaper that puts you in the editorial seat.

Now sporting a gorgeous column-based page layout, The Early Edition 2 uses an algorithm to intelligently position stories based on their content. This means every page is now both beautiful and dynamic.

Page turns can now follow your finger which looks stunning. Or you can simply swipe horizontally or tap the edge of the page.

Are you missing Reader? The Early Edition 2 now supports syncing with Feedly so you can keep track of articles you've read on the web as well as on your iPad.

Sharing services include: Twitter, Facebook, Instapaper, Readability, Read It Later, Delicious, Evernote & Pinboard.

Our intuitive multitouch interface strips back visual clutter so you can focus on the news. The main newspaper view is now completely free of buttons in both orientations which means you can simply enjoy browsing and reading your paper.

All images are now cached on the device so if you go out of network coverage, you still get the full reading experience. Also, you can choose to either load images in real-time while you navigate the paper or set it to preload all images. Preloading images is especially useful for Wifi iPads or use when a 3G network is unavailable such as flights.

Tapping any image in the main paper view takes you to a swipeable gallery mode, perfect for photography, design or comic feeds. Swipe vertically to view all the images in a single story or horizontally to view images from the next or previous story.

The entire paper is now searchable. And if there are particular search terms you use frequently, you can save them for one-tap searching anytime in the future.

Sometimes there just isn't time to keep up with the flow of news pouring in. Now you can star stories as you browse, and they get sent straight to your Clippings shoebox for later reading.

This is our curated list of suggestions for topics and news sources. From here you can preview and subscribe to interesting feeds that you may not have discovered yet.

We've implemented a lot of gestures to make navigating The Early Edition 2 both quick and amazingly fun to use.

Clean and polished news app!

Get this app if you are a news junkie looking for a classy way to stay up on current events. The newspaper experience is rich given the clean and polished visuals the app provides. Fire this app up in a coffee shop and people nearby will be asking you about it.

The share feature makes it quick to pass on relevant topics or file away in your favorite spot like Reader, Pocket, Instapaper or Evernote.

Highly recommend this app to anyone who subscribes to RSS feeds. Supports Feedly as well.

My Go-To Offline Newsreader

When I know I'll be somewhere without Internet access, I'm always sure to update EE2 before I go so I'll have news to read offline. And I really like the newspaper-look -- very old-school. My biggest complaint is that some of the sources provide only a sentence or two, meaning that I can't read the whole article until I'm online again. (I'd rather not waste the effort of opening a story then closing it again for just a sentence or two. )

Needs immediate update

Sadly, no where near as good as this used to be. Last 2 updates ruined the quality of what was once the best news app on my iPad. Now, because of the slow loads and difficult ways of adding feeds, this is now my last choice... or something to look at when all other news feeds have been looked at.

Sorry Early Edition... you were once the best. Now...mehhhh...
