Developer Snapshot: "SkyGrid - The News App for Info Junkies! See What's Hot Right Now."

- COST: Free     - RATING: 3-1/2 Stars
- Categories: Entertainment, Lifestyle, Native, News, Universal

Honestly, I don't know how I have so much time to read the news when every day I am scurrying like a maniac to accomplish everything else. Nonetheless, I take great pleasure in browsing my iPhone news apps at any time of day, and seldom watch the news on TV. SkyGrid has a reliable and uncomplicated news app to keep you informed of many topics and trends worldwide. It is an easy to read and navigate, no fuss app. Some of the more compelling features of SkyGrid are as follows:

- See what's the latest trend right now (the fastest spreading events, people, and topics across the Web)
- Get Only The Categories You Want-choose from Sci & Tech, Travel, Business, Entertainment, more
- Save Favorite Searches including keywords from which you want to get updates
- Share with Facebook, Twitter, and email
- Get Live Streaming Updates
- Receive Alerts & Notifications
- Enjoy Instant Web Viewing

To put it in a nutshell, SkyGrid provides me with the exact news in which I'm interested. How does it work? By determining what is spreading the fastest, SkyGrid connects you with only the most important events, people, and specific things you choose to learn about. When you open this app, you are given select buttons on the bottom of your screen such as: Featured, Categories, Favorites, Search, and More. Featured will display the hottest news items. Categories allows you to pick the areas of news that interest you the most, and let me say there are a ton of Categories from which to choose. If you don't see an item you'd like to read, try using the Search button to get more specific. Particularly, I find Shared Items (under the More button) most interesting as this is where a list of reading material I've send out to friends is located. That way I can always refer back to it so that I don't repeat myself in sharing news stories. Also, you may go to Settings on your device to turn notifications on for various types of news items. So, if you always want to be in the news loop and love tweeting about cool news, or including hot topics as your Facebook status update, you will enjoy the convenience and usefulness of SkyGrid.
