Today I’m launching version 3.0 of the iPhone and iPad app for NewsBlur. This major update brings loads of big features that combine to make the world’s best iOS news reader with the fastest sync in town.
- Offline support - stories and images are downloaded quickly and in parallel.
- Syncing - read stories offline or with little connectivity.
- Preferences - override global order/read filter settings, configure offline, and other options.
- Send to - rewritten to include single-tap Instapaper/Readability/Pocket integration.
- Saved and shared stories now show the proper icon.
- Activities/interactions have been rewritten to be easier on the eyes.
- A major performance improvement when returning to the app and when initially syncing.
The biggest feature since this Spring’s redesign is finally here. As always, the iOS app is a free download.
