River of News, the excellent Google Reader RSS client for the iPad, was updated yesterday – to Version 1.5.
The headline item on the change list is retina graphics for the new iPad – including high resolution feed icons and a snazzy new icon for the app itself. Here’s the remainder of the what’s new list for this version:
- Pinch to zoom images
- Sort by Magic in addition to oldest and newest first
- Better Facebook sharing
- Browser is always full-screen to prevent crashing during video playback
- Bug fixes
This has been my favorite RSS reader on the iPad for a long while, and featured in our list of Best iPad Apps of 2011. Lately I have been using Reeder more often – but they are both great apps and it’s very good to see River of News updated with retina support. I did the update last night and it’s looking sharp.
Here’s an App Store link for River of News; it’s priced at $2.99.
