Holiday weekend giveaway: Early Edition for iPad delivers easy RSS


Who cares that it's Tuesday already? We're still going strong with our holiday weekend giveaways. Next up: the capable and pleasant 'Newspad' app The Early Edition, just revised to version 1.1. There's a lot of buzz today around a new contender in the iPad newsreader market, but it's good to see that one of the first apps out of the gate has now gained some big-time improvements.

The new TEE takes the solid 'personal newspaper' metaphor of the first version and extends it with new features like Google Reader/OPML import, feed discovery from website URLs, custom sections, filtering and more. You can still skim and skip stories with ease, and quickly share articles via email or social networks. The app now gives you more feedback when stories are being fetched, and it will save your reading state so you come back to the same place when you exit and relaunch the app.

The Early Edition for iPad will set you back US$4.99 in the App Store, but we have five promo codes to give away to five lucky readers. Just leave a comment below with your favorite non-Apple-related RSS feed (we don't want to influence your opinion by suggesting sites, and it's a random drawing anyway). Good luck!
