Newsify Gains Further iOS 7 Optimizations, Feedly Article Images And Other Tweaks
Newsify, one of the most popular feed reader apps on iOS, has just received an update that mostly includes additional optimizations for iOS 7. Newsify was first updated for iOS 7 on the day of the operating system's launch last September. Specifically, it was updated then with support for background sync and notifications on iOS 7. Now, the app has been updated with support for background sync even when a device passcode is enabled. The latest update to Newsify also enables iOS 7's ultra convenient swipe-from-edge-to-go-back gesture. In addition, it adds Safari Reading List integration to the app's supported sharing channels. Originally a Google Reader-connected app, Newsify transitioned into a Feedly-connected one ahead of the shutdown of Google's RSS feed aggregation service early last July. And now, Newsify has taken its integration with Feedly one step further. When available, Feedly article images are now shown in Newsify for feed items that don't have images. This new feature can be disabled in the app's sync settings.
