Stanislav Kalishenko Comp released Web Jokes 1.1

Stanislav Kalishenko Comp. has released Web Jokes 1.1 for iPhone and iPod touch devices. Do you like bash? Or do you prefer the jokes and anecdotes than news or something like that? Then the Web Jokes is likely for you. Web Jokes is a simple and convenient RSS reader of some popular feeds with jokes that can fill your leisure time.

"What a …?" – Some might say. "The App Store is full of readers." And perhaps you’re right, but I’ll try to highlight the benefits of this application.

Feature Highlights:

  • Simple interface, without frills
  • Convenient navigation from joke to joke
  • The flexible list of RSS feeds
  • sending of favourite joke via email, SMS, Twitter, copying to the clipboard
  • two-language interface (English and Russian)

Let’s take a look at these features. First of all, a simple interface. All is simple: the navigation buttons at the bottom and the text of a joke. And there are not a list of jokes. They follow one by one on different screens and don’t mix with each other.

Secondly, quite convenient navigation. There is a paging of a joke by joke (just swipe your finger from right to left), navigation buttons – they become useful when the text does not fit in screen and there is a vertical scrolling, which does not allow flipping. In addition, if the hands dressed in gloves (or, for example, the nails do not allow flipping), then there "shake me" gesture will come to help, i.e. shaking the phone will take you to the next page. Just look, do not overdo it, because author is not responsible for broken iPhones :).

Thirdly, the flexible list of RSS feeds. What does this mean? By default, is added a number of feeds (for example, jokes from and others). But this list can be changed. You can add your favourite RSS-feed and disable or remove uninteresting.

Moreover, there is the standard functionality for this kind of applications – the ability to send favourite joke on email, SMS, to copy to the clipboard for insertion into the native "Notes" or any other application, and sending the text of the joke to your blog in Twitter. And do not look for special menu items to do it. It is very simple. Hold your finger a couple of seconds and choose one or another way of sending in the appeared popup.

And finally, another feature. If you speak Russian you will find it useful. There is currently implemented support of two languages: English and Russian. And from this option depends on a list of RSS feeds, which to download jokes. So if you are Russian-speaking man you will load the last jokes from or other feeds. If you are interested in American or British humor, then choose English as the language interface.
