NetNewsWire App for iPad Now Available
DENVER - NewsGator today announced its NetNewsWire App for iPad is now available on the App Store. The award-winning feed reader has been fully re-engineered to take advantage of iPad’s bigger screen real estate and fast processing power. The app enables users to automatically capture blog posts, podcasts and other syndicated content from providers across the Web. It puts this content in a single, intuitive interface for anytime anywhere consumption.
The NetNewsWire App for iPad includes a new split-screen view that shows subscriptions on one side, with articles and Web pages on the other. The app is similar to the desktop version of NetNewsWire but re-imagined for Multi-Touch navigation and the iPad’s stunning display.
“We could have simply repackaged our iPhone app, but we recognized the value in re-designing NetNewsWire from the ground up for the revolutionary iPad,” said Brent Simmons, creator of the NetNewsWire and TapLynx family of products. “The extra screen real estate means users can do more things, not just take up more space. The faster CPU and additional memory means the code can do more too. Using iPad is just an entirely different experience – it’s like you’re finally holding that newspad from a hundred different sci-fi movies. It’s here.”
Brent Simmons has been hard at work rewriting code and the NetNewsWire App for iPad is the first to have it. The team also enlisted star designer Bradley Ellis of RogueSheep, creator of the Apple Design Award winning Postage electronic postcard app.
“Designing great software is about connecting people and computers together in harmony,” said Ellis. “People interact with iPads differently so we took special care to design our app for this new user experience. Finding balance between simplicity and power was an interesting challenge with this new, larger screen. We’re really proud of what we’ve produced, and excited about the future as we learn more about iPad.”
The NetNewsWire App for iPad is available for $9.99 from the App Store or at: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/netnewswire-for-ipad/id363704172?mt=8
NetNewsWire/Mac has won an O’Reilly Mac OS X Innovators Award and two Macworld Eddy awards. In 2008, Time Magazine named NetNewsWire for iPhone one of its top 10 iPhone apps.
TapLynx is a division of NewsGator and the name of the company’s downloadable framework for affordable, productive development of custom iPhone and iPad Apps. TapLynx is also the foundation of NetNewsWire. For more information, visit http://www.taplynx.com.
