[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - Independent developer Daniel Wetzel today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of News Wall 1.0 for iPad and iPhone. News Wall's user interface was designed to optimize the amount of information the user can consume. Instead of navigating through lists and folders, RSS feeds are used to build a virtual wall of articles. To keep track of all articles, the user can shrink single feeds, dim read articles or show images embedded in the feeds.
The app supports several tools for sharing and saving articles. News can be sent to Instapaper and Read It Later. They also can be sent to Twitter supporting URL shortening. Sending news as e-mail is included as well. The app uses RSS feed subscriptions. After entering the address of a webpage only, most often the feed is discovered automatically. Beyond that, the integrated feed browser makes it easy to find feeds and subscribe to them.
News Wall supports multitasking and Fast App Switching.
