Flyne – My New Favorite Offline News Reader App for Android
From the creator of Falcon Pro, an awesome Twitter client for Android, comes a News Reading app called Flyne. Flyne is essentially an offline news reader which news articles from various sources and have them ready for your reading pleasure in a clean mobile format.
The app itself is free and you are limited to adding feeds from a curated list of feeds categorize by topics. For a more personalized news feed, you can choose Twitter or Feedly. These two options are paid options which you can enable via a quick in-app purchase. Once you unlock the Twitter option, and you’ve logged into Twitter, you can configure Flyne to pull content from your Timeline or any of the Twitter Lists you are subscribed to. Similarly the Feedly integration allow you to subscribe to Feedly Folders.
Once you’re setup, Flyne pulls in content from your selected sources and has it ready for you to read offline. The reading experience is really good because the entire screen then is used to display the post in a neat mobile format. The minimal menu options actually just overlay over the content. Navigation within the app is via easy to learn swipe gestures – Swipe left or right to switch between articles, Swipe right from the left edge of the screen to bring up the list of feeds, and swipe left from the right side to bring up the list of articles.
Flyne, is simple and easy to use. While this makes the app really good at what it does, you may find a feature or two lacking. If you do, head over to flyne.uservoice.com and put in your ideas so the developer can improve the app.
