iPad Screenshots


The App Store's most beautiful news reader, giving you complete control over the content you see, in a form you'll enjoy. Watch the video demo at http://www.airsource.co.uk/theearlyedition/.

The Early Edition 2 is a beautiful, up-to-the-minute newspaper that puts you in the editorial seat.

Now sporting a gorgeous column-based page layout, The Early Edition 2 uses an algorithm to intelligently position stories based on their content. This means every page is now both beautiful and dynamic.

Page turns can now follow your finger which looks stunning. Or you can simply swipe horizontally or tap the edge of the page.

Are you missing Reader? The Early Edition 2 now supports syncing with Feedly so you can keep track of articles you've read on the web as well as on your iPad.

Sharing services include: Twitter, Facebook, Instapaper, Readability, Read It Later, Delicious, Evernote & Pinboard.

Our intuitive multitouch interface strips back visual clutter so you can focus on the news. The main newspaper view is now completely free of buttons in both orientations which means you can simply enjoy browsing and reading your paper.

All images are now cached on the device so if you go out of network coverage, you still get the full reading experience. Also, you can choose to either load images in real-time while you navigate the paper or set it to preload all images. Preloading images is especially useful for Wifi iPads or use when a 3G network is unavailable such as flights.

Tapping any image in the main paper view takes you to a swipeable gallery mode, perfect for photography, design or comic feeds. Swipe vertically to view all the images in a single story or horizontally to view images from the next or previous story.

The entire paper is now searchable. And if there are particular search terms you use frequently, you can save them for one-tap searching anytime in the future.

Sometimes there just isn't time to keep up with the flow of news pouring in. Now you can star stories as you browse, and they get sent straight to your Clippings shoebox for later reading.

This is our curated list of suggestions for topics and news sources. From here you can preview and subscribe to interesting feeds that you may not have discovered yet.

We've implemented a lot of gestures to make navigating The Early Edition 2 both quick and amazingly fun to use.

I was praying that the company would update this app! THANK YOU! This app used to be my all time favorite newsreader but I thought the developers abandoned it. Please continue the updates.

Amazing new version

At first, I'll admit that I was a bit miffed that I'd have to pay full price again when I've been a loyal user of the first Early Edition for a year. And yet, it's my favorite app for viewing news and blogs, so I decided to get the newest version. And I'm happy I did. It's the same feel but upgraded in every way. Sharing is easier. Saving stories I like is easier (I used to email them to myself--now I can simply "clip" them to save in my clippings box). The format is more beautiful. Organizing sections is a possibility. It even displays older stories until the section fills up (in grey font instead of black) so that I can go back to yesterday's story easily if I choose to. All in all, I'm incredibly happy with it. It's the only app I'll use to keep up with reading blogs, and it's my favorite of the news readers.
