Get In Spring Ltd. is pleased to release RSS Beacon 1.0, the first stand-alone, all-inclusive, socially-enhanced RSS Reader for the iPhone and iPod touch. It provides users with a complete RSS management and sharing solution at their fingertips and, more innovatively, helps them become feed providers of their own.
RSS Beacon offers users the complete RSS experience straight from their mobile device; whether at home or on-the-go; whether online or offline. Users can create accounts in a few seconds and start scanning the web for feeds (Google search, automated website scan, url submission) from within RSS Beacon. They can follow feeds, read articles, save and share any content they find interesting. But its true innovation lies in its social character.
In response to the established and growing trends of social networking and micro-blogging, Get In Spring Ltd undertook the challenge of creating an RSS Reader that lets users read and share articles with their friends without having to resort to a web based reader or all the social networks they belong to. The result is RSS Beacon, an app that addresses the need of sharing and following information, in the most hassle-free way.
RSS Beacon allows users to create personalized feeds (ie. beacons), invite contacts in their address book to follow them and makes it really easy to add articles as they read them. Bypassing email services, networking sites and instant messaging, RSS Beacon allows users to truly connect with their network and become feed providers straight from their iPhone or iPod touch.
A free, dedicated web service enhances the user experience by providing automated email notifications to all followers that don’t own a copy of RSS Beacon, full profile back-up (including saved articles) for every user, OPML imports from other readers, and many more exciting features that will be soon launched in our web site.
iPhone and 2nd Generation iPod touch 3.0 or later
