Breaking is jumping from the iOS 8 Notification Center to the Apple Watch with a new update.
With version 1.2, Apple Watch users can view the most recent story in a glance or tap on it to view a full list of recent stories.
Developer Robocat has also added a highly requested feature – support for read-it-later services Instapaper and Pocket. Readers can sign into either service from the app’s settings and then add stories directly from the widget or even the Apple Watch.
Breaking is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for $2.99.
Originally landing earlier this year, Breaking was named as our AppAdvice App of the Week shortly after its release. It allows news junkies to select exactly what news they want to view.
Its first major update arrived in early April. Starting with version 1.1, users can select the number of stories to display in the widget. The iPhone is limited to five while iPad users can see up to 10 different stories.
Readers can also quickly swipe away a story to dismiss it in the widget. And with the Recent stories feature, you can also open and share the latest stories that have been read or dismissed.
And if you’re interested, you can also download Breaking for OS X Yosemite. It’s available for $4.99 from the Mac App Store.
