If you're looking for a reader to sync your all your RSS subscriptions this isn't what you're looking for (at least not so far). This is a preset-sourced reader that features the most-read and interesting tech-related news.
It has been developed to highlight them in a way that help you to stay updated in seconds. Riversip's Top News tab will show you the most relevant news per week, day or latest highlights in a scrollable list. You can tap in one article to open and read it from the app. Moreover, you can add from Topics tab those topics you want to get the latest info available. There's not a list of topics though, you'll have to use a search bar to input the ones you're looking for. Bear in mind that this is a tech-news reader, so the topics will be tech-related. If you're a dedicated techie or wannabe, this is a good starting point. Once you've added the topics, they'll remain in "My news" for a fast access to them.
You can sync Riversip with Facebook and Twitter. This way you'll enjoy a personalized briefing and see relevant chatter around news events from your Timeline. It takes some time for Riversip's servers to catch up with your Twitter timeline but, be patience because after that it works perfectly.
The main catch: it doesn't allow Google Reader integration. Besides that, if you're really into technology issues and don't want to miss a single thing related to it, this a fast and comfortable way to keep tune.
Featured in TechCrunch and SiliconFilter, Riversip is a different kind of news reader: It focuses on the major tech items - the items people are talking about.
This app's main goal is simple: Help you catch up on technology news in minimal time and on your own schedule.
In less than a minute, you can be on top of the latest “must-know” items: Riversip is the app where you stop by to have a quick glimpse at the most important tech news of the day, the week, or the hour.
