Makes news easy

Basically a browser with hundreds of news-oriented, mobile site bookmarks. You can arrange the icons of these bookmarks on a front page, and even add your own. Blocks most ads on the mobile sites. Toggle the controls off to free up screen space, but you can still navigate back and to the home page even with the controls invisible. At times slower than Safari. The only real problem I have with it is that it feels unresponsive because when you tap an icon, it doesn't darken long enough to give you a sense that you've made your input. Also, the address bar doesn't turn into a progress bar as in Safari, so even though there is a small spinning wheel, you don't know if the page is really loading until you see it happen. Minor nits to pick include these: I would like to be able to omit the Instapaper, iTunes, and "Apps" buttons. Sometimes links from Google News don't launch properly. Can't open multiple windows.

Don't read any other news but this!!

This is by far the best most convenient way to get all my news. Better than google news, ap news, and even browsing through many Internet sites for news. One app has many many news sources, blogs, customizable, and fast. They should really be showcased, and please make an ipad app, since I'm getting one 4/3. Thanks

Good, but never updated.

This app was my favorite way to access news - it still sorta is, but the app is a little buggy at times and does not support multitasking. Due to this my jb'ed phone has to use backgrounder and run it in the background, which consumes memory. I think the devs must be dead! Update please! Certain links don't work any more and need to get the new mobile site links.
