NewsRoom is an RSS Beauty and Beast
I recently learned of a new RSS reader for Android called NewsRoom.Â Since I rarely rely on bookmarked websites anymore, I like to have content readily available via RSS.Â While there have been a handful of great RSS apps released already, I decided to take a look anyhow.Â I was pleasantly surprised by not only how fully featured the app was, but how great it looked at the same time.
If you’re in the market for a nice RSS reader, I definitely suggest checking out NewsRoom.Â Among its features are background updating and offline access.Â I am always running into dead spots where I work so it’s been very handy to know that if and when my connection returns, I don’t have to mess with anything.Â Bonus points were awarded because AndroidGuys was listed as a featured feeds with a custom icons. Widgets are handled great; They can be configured so each feed has an individual icon on the desktop.
Other features found in NewsRoom:
- Icon interface make it easy to track your feeds
- Add new feeds from featured list, search or by using your own URL
- Skim article summaries
- Battery optimization
You can download NewsRoom for $4.99 today in the Android Market.Â There’s also a trial version that’s offered for free however, I don’t know what the difference is other than perhaps a time limit.Â According to the product’s blog,Â if you do switch from trial to full version, your feeds will not make the jump.
