Byline 2.5 released

Phantom Fish has updated Byline, a news reader and offline web browser for the iPhone and iPod touch. Version 2.5 offers a new user interface, and progressive syncing with Google Reader. The latter loads articles in sections while maintaining a responsiveness, enabling users to start reading their articles faster.

Byline now also permits users to sort items by source feeds, by means of the new "sort by feed" mode. The feature can be used to follow the thread of a given news source, providing access to related news articles. Other new features include zoom capabilities, and headline text wrapping. New customers can purchase Byline from the App Store for $5.

    Great application

    This is my favourite RSS reader on the iPhone.
    The way it links into your Google reader account and supports downloading articles for off-line reading, is nothing short of fantastic.
