What with the new Star Wars film coming out this Christmas, wouldn't it be great to have all the latest news about it available at the touch of a button? Well, now you can with the "News for Star Wars" app. We gather the news form all the main news sites, categorise it by subject and display it in an easy to use "tag cloud". The more stories there are about something, the larger it is displayed. Only really interested in Han Solo? Then tap his name to get all the stories that relate to him.

Make your favourite topics more visible by clicking the "Like" button. This hilights them so they stand out more prominently.

Tweet a story that you think your mates might like.

Lots of similar stories? Click a button to mark them all as read. A tag will appear grey if there are no new stories to read. You can even mark EVERYTHING as read now.

To update it at any time, simply give it a shake or choose the option from the pop up menu. The data on the server is only updated every half hour.

We gather the headlines from the StarWars.Com, Theforce.Net and a whole lot more.

Finally, and most importantly, "News for Star Wars" is FREE and looks a bit like the opening credits from New hope!!!!!!

Double finally, if you like this then you might like "Alt Music News" and "Video Games News" which are the music and video games equivalents.
