For both iPhone and iPad, the update adds support for even more gestures. Now, you can set actions for when you double-tap a story, two-finger double-tap, long-press a feed or folder, and long-press a story title. In addition, it brings new sharing controls that work with Facebook, Twitter, email, text, Instapaper, Pocket, Readability, App.Net, Pinboard, OmniFocus, Safari, Chrome, and AirDrop.

NewsBlur 4.0 also includes the following changes:

  • Inline images show a preview of the story in the story title.
  • Inline descriptions show a preview of the story's content in the story title.
  • Improved landscape support for the iPad app.
  • Improved video support: videos are now fit better for each device.
  • Numerous bugs fixed resulting in speed improvements and cleaned up code.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, NewsBlur 4.0 is available now in the App Store for free.
