New In The App Store : iNews Lite

On April 19, 2009

While it may not sync with Google Reader, it does synchronize your Favorites and Starred Items from Google Reader. And, more importantly, it offers one of the quickest and easiest to use interfaces I have ever tried. It looks and works beautifully!

The full version is usually $3.99 but is currently on sale for $.99. That is, in my opinion, a bargain.)

Better still however, a new limited Lite version that accepts up to 6 feed sources. It is a great way to access a few special feeds in their own reader.

It is worth noting that this Lite version includes many of the upgrades, such as the fantastic magazine-like interface and toolbar, that will be coming in vesion 2.0 of iNews. The update has been submitted to Apple and will, hopefully, be approved in the next few days.

Details and a video of the special motion-gesture navigation.
