What's New in Version 2.6
★ New design for iPhone 5 has more headlines & photos per page.
★ Now compatible with iOS 6.
★ Simpler and refreshed catalog of news sections.
★ Cleaner overall design.
There are loads of news apps designed from the designers point of view. Skygrid allows the user to develop the news feeds he/she wants, close at hand, easy to access and notification of new information is dealt with with efficiency and with an 'At-a-glance' speed most developers would be jealous.
The title grid can be adapted to allow your own personal requirements to be accessed with one touch, or you can peruse the adapted title page grid for swimming through any and all available feeds that takes your fancy.
I find the simple idea of the grid system a great way to filter through what I want or need to read.
My only downer is that on the iPad one and iPhone 3GS, I can find myself being shutdown and returned to my news home page, therefore I have only given four stars as it can be a bit annoying sometimes.
Although, there is only this singular glitch I would still recommend this app to friends, family and users of this OS.
So handy being able to tailor the topics to suit one's interests.
Great for photo enthusiasts with National Geographic content and some really useful, thought provoking articles in other areas. Overall it's genuinely useful to have available.
Have had so many news apps, but this is a breath of fresh air.
Always the first one I check and it is the best out of all.
