FeedsWire: Written iPhone App Review

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Want to have all your favorite news and social networking updates instantly at your fingertips? Then FeedsWire from developer MyClickapps.com LLC is the perfect app for you. It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad, and runs on iOS 5.0 or later.

Features:

The app allows its users to have instant access to RSS feeds from multiple sources, such as local and national news, magazines, business updates, entertainment and showbiz, money and finance, and social networking enabled sharing. The user can group their desired feed by category and under main subject headers. When they open the app they are automatically prompted with the following headers: “Business”, “News”, and Tech”. The main difference with this app is that the user can allow the users to simultaneously share their favorite news articles with their friends via their social networking accounts.  Users can also access feeds in offline mode.

In order to add new subject headers, the user can tap on the plus sign button and then start adding. To add new feeds to already existent subject headers, the user will tap on the plus sign next to the subject header. To delete the user will tap the “x” button.
Since this is the free version, the user is only allowed to create five main subject headers or categories. There is a “Pro” version that the user can pay to upgrade to which allows unlimited group or category creation. It also removes any distracting ads.

Appearance and Layout:

FeedsWire iPhone App Review

The overall appearance of FeedsWire is simple and clear. The user can easily locate their updated feeds whether it is business related, news related, or tech related, and so on. Font style and size is decent and easy to read. Navigation is based on simple scrolling and tap, and layout is easy to figure out. The main color scheme is a combination of black and orange, with white translucent font.

Value:

For FeedsWire being offered for free, makes it an even better deal. Yes, the user has the option to upgrade to a pro version, but having the free version is still sufficient for the user. Although this may not appeal to everyone or be suitable for every user, but it is still a beneficial and helpful app to those who do choose to use it.

FeedsWire iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review. The iPhone app reviews rating: [Rating: 4/5]
