QuikLink: Newspaper (QuickNews)
By Karim Dhanani
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Version 2.0 Submitted to App Store; Contains tabs, back-forward buttons, and more. Please be patient with loading newspapers, as of now there is no progress bar.
Note: Updated Over-the-Air! We've added some more newspapers, from Australia and beyond! Including the Financial Post, and the Sydney Morning Herald.
QuikLink News (QuickNews) is an application giving access to lots of newspapers in Canada, the United States, and England. Just tap on USA Today and Safari will open USA Today's iPhone Optimized website. Or tap the "Daily Mirror", "Calgary Sun", "Toronto Star", "New York Times", and much more. And an added bonus; For premier Newspapers, get an easy link to the Business and Politics sections as well.
How does QuickNews work? As soon as you open the application, the XML Parser gets a list of some of the top newspapers in North America, from a trusted web server. If you don't have an Internet connection, or maintenance is being done on the server, it will automatically load the last known newspapers [In version 2.0, this is not the case, although we are working on it]
[*] Updates the list of newspapers without having to wait for a software update; does it over-the-air
[*] Fast Downloading: Over your WiFi, 3G, or EDGE network, you'll be able to access whatever you want, when you want it. In less then 10 seconds.*
[*] High-Quality Newspapers: Although we are not affiliated with these newspapers, we are dedicated to bringing you the best quality newspapers there are. We appreciate feedback though; if you need any support, or would like your local newspaper to be listed, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
[*] Landscape Orientation: Tilt your device sideways, and see what happens!
Give this application a try; at only 99c, it's truly a bargain deal.
* With EDGE or slower internet connections, the speed may be slower. But generally speaking, the average time is less then 5 seconds for downloading, and less than 1 second for parsing and loading
