*** Praise for News Addict ***

"The interface is pleasing, and navigation is a breeze, with sources on the home screen laid out newsstand style. TapMode designed the app to use the handheld device???s full screen, which allows for more information and makes for easier, more economical reading."
-- Ben Boychuk, MacWorld.com

New in Version 1.2 Tilt scrolling. Go to settings to turn on tilt scrolling. Hold your phone at a comfortable reading angle and tap the calibrate button. Then just tilt the phone forward or back to have the page scroll automatically. This feature is similar to what you may have seen in the application instapaper.

On the new 17+ Rating: Apple now requires all apps that provide unfiltered access to the internet to be rated at 17+. We have not changed our content other than adding additional news sites.
