[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Phantom Fish today announced the release of Byline, an RSS news reader and offline browser for iPhone and iPod Touch. Byline presents the latest news items from feeds subscribed to in Google Reader. Even when no internet connection is available, Byline offers instant offline access to complete web pages.
"Byline puts the latest news from your favorite sites and blogs at your fingertips," said Milo Bird, the developer of Byline. "For the first time, you can easily save web pages and read them offline on your iPhone. The beauty is that you can do this with absolutely any web page, not just items from your news feeds. It's perfect for flights, subway journeys, and - if you're an iPod Touch owner - for those long dry spells between WiFi zones."
With Byline, users can view headlines along with summaries of unread items from their free Google Reader account. Tapping on a headline will display the item's content, which will be the complete web page for items that have been archived for offline browsing. With a tap of a button, the item can be starred for later reading within Byline, or from Google Reader itself. A bookmarklet provided by Google can be used to create a note from any website you visit on your Mac, PC, or mobile device. Byline automatically archives starred items and notes for offline browsing.
Pricing and Availability:
Byline is available now from the App Store for $9.99 USD. Equivalent pricing is available in other currencies accepted by the App Store.
