Wired News Review
by on May 31, 2011
Like many good news apps, Wired News does well by keeping things simple. News from the famed tech publication is the focus of the app, unsurprisingly given the name, but there are big reviews here too, and a way to quickly view the Wired UK Twitter feed.
You scroll down through a list of stories’ headlines, with thumbnail pics for each. Click through into a story and it loads the picture at the top, with the text underneath. The font is clear and easy to read by default, but you can increase or decrease the size of the words if needed. It’s easy to skip to next or previous articles.
There are plenty of nice touches, including simple ways to share stories, and a text selection mode. You can also view in page or column mode, depending on your preference. You can also use a Find tool to search a story.
It’s all very neatly done. We’re not sure the app really carries the spirit of Wired’s often very visual style, but the content is what’s most important, and that’s handled very well.
