Ilium Software has released NewsBreak, a powerful Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC application that gives you real-time access to international news, entertainment, sports, and technology articles.
NewsBreak comes with pre-selected news outlets, and makes it easy to add your own Internet news sources. You can use NewsBreak to follow your favorite blogs, or any public or company internal channel that uses RSS standards. For each news channel, NewsBreak shows you the total number of headlines available, as well as the number of unread messages.
Tap any channel name, and NewsBreak opens a headline list. An icon next to each headline tells you if it contains keywords from your customized list of important words and phrases. The program can alert you whenever a story in any channel has one or more of these important keywords. It also indicates if you have already read the headline or the complete story. Most headlines have date and time stamps.
NewsBreak is $14.95. For complete information on NewsBreak including 30-day free trials and purchasing information go to: http://www.iliumsoft.com/site/nw/newsbreak.htm
