How often do you check in with your favorite websites throughout the day? If these sites have an RSS or Atom feed option, you could be using the Byline app to streamline your browsing and get direct access to the latest postings, news, and articles. The app links to a Google Reader account and separates new items into categories on the main page.

The Byline app keeps local copies of all new items received, and this allows the app user to read the full stories and even enjoy access to embedded links while entirely offline. The portrait or landscape viewing options make it easy to enjoy all websites that the user subscribes to, and the app will store up to 200 items at any given time.

These stories can be shared or sent via email, and there is the option for adding notes as well. The app allows the user to also sort any items received by their source or by the date they arrived in order to help keep browsing even more efficient.

There are many RSS aggregators and apps, but the Byline app is rare in that it links directly with an existing Google Reader subscription to allow anyone to automatically get their feeds through a mobile device.

The cost for the app is $3.99, and a user will need to create a Google Reader account for functionality. The Byline app functions with iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

If you want a mobile way to stay up to date with your favorite websites, this is the app to download right away.
