[prMac.com] Houston, TX - Icey Labs has announced the launch of Stream News Reader, the unique, new way to experience news. The app, designed for iPhone and iPod touch devices, streams the tweets of news sources chosen by the user from either a preset featured listing, or by manual input of their Twitter name. The tweets appear as headlines, displaying one at a time in large text, enabling users to view the current news by glancing at their device, which in turn updates these headlines frequently.
Stream News Reader presents a new take on news by presenting Twitter tweets from chosen news sources as headlines in large text, easily readable at a glance on an iPhone or iPod touch, especially when docked.
Twitter is a rich source for information, both social and news-based. Stream News Reader portrays the news side of Twitter in a minimalistic interface, putting no separation between the user and their news. Not only does Stream News Reader present the news we choose to cater, but news from any source chosen by the user, through their Twitter feed. A single tap of the headline presents the user with the full article in a built-in browser with the choice of sharing the article and opening in Safari. A tap of the source's name provides more information about the news source. A clock is also presented in the app, improving the app's ability to function as a dock app.
