InfoSource is a simple, yet powerful application for keeping an eye on the information that matters to you most. You simply provide the sources of information you would like to monitor, then sit back and watch as the information flows in. You can actively monitor website feeds or any topic you like through integrated search.

Once you have configured some sources, the item list will automatically update as new information becomes available. Items new to your list will be prominently displayed in a dynamic group at the top, then trickle down to the existing items group. The existing items list also has built-in search for those time when you think you may have missed something.

Ratings and Reviews

New update works well


Latest version (2.1) works great on my iPhone 5

Needs work on iphone


I could care less about timer on top please hide the timer and also make a full-screen mode.

Also the font type and size needs to be adjustable.

The other thing that would make this app cool is to be able to have it read you the first time in news article pops up that article just wants aloud.



When the developer took that last screen shot, he specifically left out the section just above the general settings: pay to remove ads.
It's a typical $0.99 purchase, worth the effort for a good app. But its absence from the long description or as a listed in-app purchase is deceptive, and I won't be bothering to find out if the other features of the app are enough compensation.
