How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Like This One August 18, 2011
By PJ
Verified Purchase
Replaces many individual news apps that clutter up your device and places them all at your fingertips. Newspapers from around the world, magazines, and related websites are all available and 'favorites' allows you to save the ones you use frequently, all on one page. You can even save your home town newspaper. This app is easy on resources and yes, there are ads, but this is free, after all. This sits on my tablet and phone's home screens and is used every day. Great job!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little app July 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
I just downloaded this on my Samsung Charge and tried a few of the magazines and a paper I like. Although the magazines I checked weren't the full versions, that is fine with me. Some articles had a notice to subscribe for the full article but gave me other articles in full. They even had a mobile version of a local newspaper I like.

I usually don't read magazines and papers in full anyway, so a few articles here and there are just fine. There is enough here to entertain and inform on a limited basis. Recommend.

every 10 secs yes app asks for a rating. it isn't as popular or as good as it looks based on reviews. people are just giving ratings so that the app will stop prompting them and be usable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent app with huge flaw April 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app is fantastic but I give it 1 star for interrupting regular use to demand feedback. Well you have your feedback. I hope you like it, developer. Harassment of users is not the route to positive feedback.

4.0 out of 5 stars convenient tool
I like that it brings a lot of of resources together in one place. Navigation is a little outdated, needs a centrally placed menu bar. But I still recommend it.
