What's New in Version 1.2
Good curator of commentary. Limited tools to save articles.
I have used this service for a long time. Serves up daily selection of key editorials from across political spectrum. I give it only a three however because I am fed up with how difficult it is to save articles to something like Instapaper. Far harder to if you want to save articles than something like Tweetcaster or Zite or any other type of app I use to find good political pieces. Frustrating. I think this stems from the developer trying too hard to keep you from going outside the app once you are in it.
Start the day with RCP
I don't follow sports. I follow politics. And so I start every day with coffee and Real Clear Politics. I recommend this for other like minded people. Plenty of variety and opinion. As to the app, I wish I could jump to real clear world and I wish it wouldn't throw me out of my chosen article and on to something else when I go to stretch an article for bigger script. Technical issues, no big deal.
It's how I read the news every morning.
I can't imagine being without it. They finally did an update a few months ago ( a big thank you !), however, there are still a few bugs. The iPad version is different and doesn't have the favorites tab, which I love on the iPhone. Also, copy link doesn't seem to work in iOS, at least it doesn't for me. But this is an amazing app. It's my favorite news app HANDS DOWN! Please keep the updates coming.
