iPad Screenshots


The App Store's most beautiful news reader, giving you complete control over the content you see, in a form you'll enjoy. Watch the video demo at http://www.airsource.co.uk/theearlyedition/.

The Early Edition 2 is a beautiful, up-to-the-minute newspaper that puts you in the editorial seat.

Now sporting a gorgeous column-based page layout, The Early Edition 2 uses an algorithm to intelligently position stories based on their content. This means every page is now both beautiful and dynamic.

Page turns can now follow your finger which looks stunning. Or you can simply swipe horizontally or tap the edge of the page.

Are you missing Reader? The Early Edition 2 now supports syncing with Feedly so you can keep track of articles you've read on the web as well as on your iPad.

Sharing services include: Twitter, Facebook, Instapaper, Readability, Read It Later, Delicious, Evernote & Pinboard.

Our intuitive multitouch interface strips back visual clutter so you can focus on the news. The main newspaper view is now completely free of buttons in both orientations which means you can simply enjoy browsing and reading your paper.

All images are now cached on the device so if you go out of network coverage, you still get the full reading experience. Also, you can choose to either load images in real-time while you navigate the paper or set it to preload all images. Preloading images is especially useful for Wifi iPads or use when a 3G network is unavailable such as flights.

Tapping any image in the main paper view takes you to a swipeable gallery mode, perfect for photography, design or comic feeds. Swipe vertically to view all the images in a single story or horizontally to view images from the next or previous story.

The entire paper is now searchable. And if there are particular search terms you use frequently, you can save them for one-tap searching anytime in the future.

Sometimes there just isn't time to keep up with the flow of news pouring in. Now you can star stories as you browse, and they get sent straight to your Clippings shoebox for later reading.

This is our curated list of suggestions for topics and news sources. From here you can preview and subscribe to interesting feeds that you may not have discovered yet.

We've implemented a lot of gestures to make navigating The Early Edition 2 both quick and amazingly fun to use.

Visually almost perfect

I have had and used this app since its launch. If you are like me and use multiple news apps and always searching for another or better one then you for sure have used this. It is the closest thing to the real look that I can get without buying the digital version of each newspaper. It could be a little more user friendly but I am being picky. If it was gone I would have difficulty finding anything close to the look of this.

Almost Amazing. Almost...

The Early Edition 2 comes so close to be a truly amazing app. But there are two main problems. The first one is obvious. The app is sluggish at times and crashes every now and then. But I have come to expect that from first releases, and I am sure that will be resolved soon.

What stops me from giving The Early Edition 5 stars is that when I click on many of the articles I only get a snipped of the text. If I wan't to read the full article I have to open it in the in-line web browser. It's not the end of the world, but it adds an extra step for me and the text in the browser is usually small and the sites cluttered with adds. There is a "easy" solution to this and I hope the developer will consider it… Integrate Readability! Same technology Apple uses for the Reading List feature in Safari. Early edition could use the readability API to extract the full text from articles and display them in-line rather than having to open a browser. If that were to happen I would replace Reeder as my primary RSS app.
