News Tracker - Monitor the News by Keywords
By Blueinstinct App Solutions
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The first and ONLY news tracker for the iPhone!
You define the keywords you want News Tracker to get news for. Add as many search keywords as you like, whether it is a single word like "iPhone" or a phrase like "iphone market share".
Press the "Update" button and the application will download all the news with your search keywords, including the summary of the news item so you can view them even after you have disconnected from the Internet.
The program gives you the option to download news summary for the 10, 20, or 30 most recent news on the web.
Use this to monitor your favorite companies, products, people, and just about anything important to you!
Note: you need an internet connection to search and download news items. The news items are then stored in your device. You can view the title and a snippet of the news article which contains the search term that you specified. You can read the full article if you are connected to the internet.
Applications of News Tracker are limitless! Use it for SEO, for social media monitoring, PR work, keeping in touch with developments of companies you have invested in, or just to monitor technologies.
If you are a news junkie, this app is for you!

Great app - almost
Jan 2012 update - problems not fixed and worse now I'm running IOS5 on a 3Gs. It crashes at any attempt to refresh the news feeds. Sadly, as it was an awesome app.
Was one of my most used apps. Occasional flaws in pulling up a relevant webpage, but even then it manages to launch it in Safari.
Tracks themes of interest, general or specific news subject matter, and saves not only your searches but let you mark items of interest to explore later. Fast and efficient.
But it's not entirely bug-free. The app often crashes when I try to edit and delete a search item, especially if it's low down on a long list. The failure to access a webpage within an app is quite frequent, meaning another couple if clicks to open it in safari. These bugs aren't new, so one might be hoping that the developer could maybe manages to fix them. (I wrote this quite a while back, no change, so lack of updates is a big downside.)
Great app for news on any subject
Fast and easy to use must have app
