The Early Edition1.3

01 November 2010

Your own personal, daily newspaper on the iPad.


The Early Edition takes the news sources that you enjoy (via their RSS feeds) and presents their content in a format which is familiar, stylish and intuitive.

You can import feeds from Google Reader or OPML file, discover feed URLs by entering Web links and even categorize your news feeds into sections, just like a traditional newspaper!

Each time you collect news, articles from your source list are collected and assembled into a daily edition and stored in Archives for later reference.

With The Early Edition you can skim through pages of article teasers or tap a headline to view the article in full screen. And if you want to share a story, the action button provides a host of options like Twitter, Facebook, Instapaper, Read It Later, Delicious and Email.

If you\'re someone who checks the news throughout the day, tapping the Fetch button will collect new stories since your last fetch and add them to the front of the paper. Or a long tap on a single feed or section will do an isolated fetch to save you some time.

You can filter articles in a number of ways, including:
✭ Last fetch
✭ Today
✭ All dates
✭ Previous editions

The Early Edition really takes advantage of the unique platform that the iPad provides and seamlessly combines what\'s great about print with what\'s great about the web.

News sources can be gathered from:
✔ Websites
✔ Blogs
✔ Twitter
✔ Forums
✔ Pretty much anywhere you see an RSS link or symbol online

A big thanks to everyone who has given us feedback and helped us improve and enhance this app. We\'ve got some exciting plans that we\'ll be implementing over time so please stay tuned!
