I mentioned recently that River of News is easily my favorite RSS reader app for the iPad. It’s already a stellar app, and today there’s word on the River of News blog that there’s an update for it coming soon.
I’m wrapping up version 1.3 of River of News. It still needs to go through more testing and then be approved by Apple so it may be a couple of weeks until it’s in your hands. I’ve had the review process take between two and fifteen days.
Here are the new features coming in Version 1.3:
- iOS 4.2 compatibility
- Save Images
- People you follow in Google Reader
- Open links in Instapaper Mobilizer
- Show unread badge in portrait view
- Show unread badge on home screen
- Email contents of an article
- Set a default To: email address
- New icon
- Assorted bug fixes
The app’s developer is very keen to get user feedback on how he can make the app better – which is always a good thing to see. You can check out his full post on the upcoming update, and take part in the survey to let him know how you think the app can get better, by visiting here:
