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 My favorite app November 24, 2011
By B. Carr
Verified Purchase
This is probably the app I use the most on my Kindle. Gives you a pretty fair selection of newspapers. I'm trying to figure out how to add a paper (if you know, leave a comment).

Although the papers want you to subscribe, this will get you the basic headlines.

This app nicely categorizes news sources by genre (newpapers, periodicals, etc.). Moves effortlessly on wi-fi and very fast on 3G. Solid app.

5.0 out of 5 stars Convenient September 29, 2011
I've used this collection for quite some time. Used to only be avail to me as a bookmark when at a computer. Now I get to have the news with me whenever I need it. Allows you to add your own papers/news sources.

3.0 out of 5 stars Update is two steps back December 25, 2011
Verified Purchase
I liked it before the most recent update when it changed from a native reading app using the mobile sites, to just being links that open in the browser, which has its own bugs. It is now just a glorified bookmarks list. And they reset all my preferences with the update including adding a bunch of unwanted papers that you must delete individually. Disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use + options = great September 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
I love having news access on the go. The news stream I loaded before never updated. This one seems to update every time I open it. I love having nitrile options for the news as well. The only downside is that I'm pretty sure you only get to stories but that may just be me not knowing where to look.

This began as a great app. But then this morning I open up the app and find all but 4 newspapers disappeared. Where did they go? Obviously this needs some serious work to fix it.
