The W8 app is designed with the busy bee in mind. For those of us who are often on the go (everyone ever), it might be hard to enjoy the New York Times with a slow cup of coffee in the morning like we should.
It’s more than likely that instead, you peruse through the top headlines after checking your email, grab your keys and head outside with hardly enough time to tie your shoes.
Well, the W8 app is designed with you in mind, and serves as a news and events aggregator of sorts; sourcing material into the palm of your hand in a truly delightful fashion.
The latest update for this app was published on January 18th, and delivers a more stable and capable app than ever before.
The app as a whole is designed for iOS 7, and showcases a dynamic, cool blue interface.
The entire point of the app is to flow from one idea and topic to the next, and with this in mind, the app chooses to utilize an underwater motif to capture the flow in full effect.
Hop from headline to headline, whether it’s news, technology, sports, selected favorites or more.
Concept and Functionality:
W8 seems to most closely emulate Flipboard, the social news aggregate app that took mobile devices by storm not too long ago. It brings a similar concept to a new interface, and does so impeccably well.
The whole idea is to make 5 or 10 minutes of downtime (wait time, and or W8 time) seem like a breeze instead of a burden.
The app succeeds by utilizing sophisticated development to create an encompassing experience.
You’ll get so lost in the content and simply floating around, that you might just miss the train you were waiting for. But if so, that’s on you!
This app is lightweight, clear, vibrant, and bursting with new content each day. At just under 2 bucks, this app is a steal through and through.
The next time that you’re caught waiting for a plane, train, bus or automobile, download the W8 app instead of staring at the clock.
You’ll have a plethora of fresh content at your fingertips, and you will thank us later.
W8 requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
