Holiday weekend coming up and you know what that means! Some of the biggest and best developers out there are chopping their prices, so you know it's time to fire up the credit card and head on down to the App Store.
Print media isn’t what it used to be; nowadays, whippersnappers can fire up their iPads to read news faster than ever. Yet there’s something timeless about the classic newspaper layout and feel, something that hasn’t yet been replaced by glitzy and glossy mail-like readers.
Just look at The Early Edition, an RSS feeder created by Glasshouse Apps. It’s fast, sleek and designed to mimic the aesthetics of a newspaper.
Call me old-fashioned (or just old--I can take it), but there’s something about the look of a newspaper that just feels right when it comes to taking in the news of the day. Problem is, newspapers today bring you the news of yesterday and sometimes the day before that. RSS feeds are the answer, I know, but something in me dies at the thought of reading even more words in an email-like interface.
If you’re with me this far, you’ll understand why I instantly fell in love with The Early Edition for iPad.
