Quoted as being the "oldest purely electronic technology publication", downloading their app you can see why. Their UI is near terrible with only one button, refresh. There is no search, no tabs, no save feature. It just shows one long stream of articles with no rhyme or reason. The only good point I can see is that when you're done reading an article, there is a little button that will go to the next one.

What is it about?

Stay up to date with the latest news and products in the Mac and iOS worlds with TidBITS (tidbits.com), the oldest Internet-only publication on the planet! The award-winning publication was founded in 1990 by Adam Engst, regularly voted one of the most influential figures in the Macintosh industry.
