River of News – RSS Google Reader for iPad – by far and away my favorite RSS reader app for the iPad – has been updated this week, to Version 1.4.
This is mainly an iOS 5 and performance improvements update – here’s the change list for it:
✭ Rewritten to take advantage of iOS 5
✭ Better scrolling and responsiveness
✭ Tweet with new iOS 5 interface
✭ Many bug fixes and stability improvements
I use this app heavily every day, and I can say it’s definitely feeling a lot smoother and quicker after applying the update.
The update details also mention that there is ‘an exciting new feature update in the works’. That sounds good. I hope the app will soon be updated to account for the changes in Google Reader itself, in terms of how sharing is done (via Google+ now).
Here’s an App Store link for River of News; it’s priced at $3.99.
