Byline RSS app for iPhone
Phantom Fish on Monday debuted its Byline, an RSS reader and offline brower allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to easily save web pages and read them later. "For the first time," the company says, readers can save virtually any web page -- not just items from news feeds -- for later use. Byline supports feeds from Google Reader displaying summaries of unread items for users to browse.
Phantom Fish says the Byline is "perfect for flights or subway journeys," and for iPod Touch users who are between WiFi zones. Stored web pages can be viewed by tapping on an item's headline. Items can be saved for reading within Byline or from Google Reader. The application supports Google's "bookmarklets," which allow users to take note of sites they have visited. Byline is available for $10 from the iTunes AppStore.
