All About The Top Three Most
Requested Features

#1) Make it faster.

Previous versions were built as a fast
mobile browser app. But like you, we wanted
something faster. A native iOS interface
was called for. One that looked and felt
just like the Drudge Report.

Weve made it happen.

Version 3 offers speed and performance in
more than just native iOS interface...

+ Images load only if on-screen
+ Servers compress images for slow connections
+ Instantaneous Back button
+ iOS multi-tasking

With great usability enhancements...

+ Swipe right to jump to the next column
+ Swipe left to load the latest headlines
+ Press, hold a 1/2 second and release for context menu
+ Improved ad space management
+ Settings > Enable graying of visited links

Dont like the native iOS interface? Just go to Settings and change the default Home back to Mobile or Web.


#2) Add Customizable Push Notifications

+ Isolated Highlighted Headlines
+ Keyword notifications. If single or multiple keywords are found in a headline, a notification will be sent.
+ Quiet Time = send with no sound.
+ Blackout Time = do not send.
+ Throttle maximum alerts received per hour.
+ Mobile Siren now managed in the app.


#3) Would love to see a Reader

Tap on a link. If our Reader finds parsable text, a thin bar will appear on the bottom of the app. Tap anywhere on that bar and a full screen reading window will appear. Tap anywhere on the edges to close the window. Flick the reading area to scroll. iPad users can swipe the gray area for slow scrolling. The font is large, easy to read, and customizable in Settings.

Caveats
Apple prevents apps from accessing Safari Mobile's Reader so weve custom-made our own Reader. Please keep in mind that we lack Apples development budget. That said, you will find that news websites using formatting standards enjoy optimal text display. For other sites, the parser is programmed to compensate (and even self-updates). For sites where the parser needs fine-tuning, use Share > E-Mail Support and detail the formatting issue. Where possible, we will update the parser rules.


Other improvements

+ Fullscreen re-engineered and optimized for iOS 5
+ After first three minutes reopens to last screen. Afterwards refreshes Drudge Report. If you prefer it to always open the last page turn on Settings > Always Open Last.
+ Toolbar on Top button touch bug fixed.
+ All toolbar buttons now highlighted when touched.
+ New button to turn Tilt On/Off from Toolbar.
+ Upside-down mode supported in full-screen mode.
+ Goto Home Button Customized Home bug fixed.
+ Open in Safari added to Share.
+ E-mail Support and Rate App added to Share.
+ Close Ad button now applies for session.
+ and more too numerous to list...
