Flyne

Popular offline RSS and Twitter reader gets a major facelift

Flyne has seen a pretty major update today, bringing a new Tablet UI, changes to the standard interface, and a handful of new features. If you're not familiar with Flyne, it's an offline reader that can aggregate popular feeds, and with a 99-cent in-app purchase it can tie into your Feedly or Twitter accounts. Made by the developer of Falcon Pro, the app is polished and well designed.

Todays changes are looking good. The full list:

  • New list based navigation, with big or small article previews (toggle it in the display settings)
  • Polished looks for both day and night themes
  • Double tap to close article
  • Zoomable, downloadable images
  • Mark as read while you scroll
  • Feedly two way sync
  • New tablet layout
  • Faster preloading of articles
  • Smoother navigation
  • New transition animation
  • Many bug fixes

Current users should see an update notice from Google Play shortly, and those who want to give it a spin can hit the link above.

I installed this a few months ago. I soon uninstalled it, because I didn't find it useful. I suppose I'll give it another chance.

Same here. I'd like to use Flyne more, but I prefer Feedly or Press for RSS and I read my less specific (non-RSS) news in Newsstand or Circa.

It's lack of gif support was a deal breaker for me.

Am I the only one who still uses pulse as a news reader? I find it to be very functional and easy to navigate. Just me?

I might try pulse again. I used it in the past.
