NewsGator Announces Native NetNewsWire Application for iPhone on Apple App Store
NewsGator Technologies Inc. today announced the availability of NetNewsWire for iPhone and iPod touch, a free native application based on the market-leading, critically-acclaimed RSS feed reader for Mac. NetNewsWire for iPhone will sync with NewsGator's suite of RSS readers, including NetNewsWire for Macintosh, FeedDemon, Inbox, and NewsGator Online -- providing users a lightweight, easy application to keep up with feeds on the go.
The application is extremely easy-to-use and features a simple, clear user interface that complements the iPhone and iPod touch experience. NetNewsWire for iPhone makes it easy for users to cycle through all their news by using the "Next Unread" button, which goes from story to story with a quick tap of a single button. Users can also save items to read or blog about later via clipping, and saved items also sync with the desktop and browser-based RSS readers.
"With NetNewsWire for iPhone, we wanted to create a reading experience that goes hand-in-hand with the iPhone's intuitive ease-of-use," said Brent Simmons, creator of the NetNewsWire family of products. "People are increasingly realizing that RSS is the fastest, most efficient way to read their favorite news and blogs from wherever they are. The popularity of the iPhone and iPod touch makes it the perfect platform to create an outstanding mobile application that can become a part of people's everyday experience."
NetNewsWire for iPhone is available for free beginning today from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/
