Hot iOS Fever Client Sunstroke Updated With Universal Support Plus Other Features
With the shutdown of Google Reader just over a couple of months away, you might have already been looking for some good alternatives to switch to. Well, if you don't mind paying for one, Fever could very well be the feed reader for you. And should you choose to use Fever, you might as well use Sunstroke as your Fever client for iOS. "Sunstroke is a project of love created by a true fan of Fever," says a note on the app's webpage. "Long before anyone had heard news of Google Reader's demise, the indie developer behind Sunstroke was using Fever as his only feed reader. As such, Sunstroke was built to take full advantage of all of the unique aspects of Fever." In fact, Sunstroke has just been updated with more features that make it an even better Fever client for iOS.

As a result, it is now natively compatible with iPad. The app's new iPad interface, though, offers little beyond a stretched-out version of its iPhone counterpart. Nevertheless, Sunstroke for iPad works well. The new version of Sunstroke also features local sync completion notifications, an improved URL scheme, a basic ability to subscribe to feeds, and quite a few sharing enhancements. Sunstroke now supports opening of all links in Safari, opening links in Chrome, posting to App.net via Felix or Riposte, saving to Pinboard via Pinbook, and sharing to the Buffer app. In addition, Sunstroke now uses native iOS Facebook sharing. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, the new version of Sunstroke is available now as a free update or as a new $4.99 download. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
