Now that RSS has caught on with many people as being a mobile-friendly alternative to standard web browsing, the key is making the reading experience better for mobile devices. With the release of TopStory, iambic looks to make getting the news that people want via RSS much easier to do.
This application relies on the over-the-air (OTA) nature of smartphones and mobile devices to get the latest news in an easy to mark and read format.
When syncing, users have the option of receiving all the headlines at once or a sub-set of them. Users can also configure TopStory to provide alerts.
It features an "out of the box" set of feeds, options allowing users to add custom feeds as well as import OPML feed definition files, and the capability to download not only the news’ text but the embedded images as well.
TopStory is available for Palm OS, Windows Mobile, and Windows Mobile Smartphone devices.
