Developer Description:
Finally – your own personal, daily newspaper! The Early Edition takes all of the news sources that you enjoy and presents their content in a format which is familiar, stylish and intuitive.

And now now in 1.1 you can import feeds from Google Reader or OPML file, discover feed URLs by entering web links and even categorize your news feeds into sections, just like a traditional newspaper!

Each time you collect news, articles from your source list are collected and assembled into a daily edition and stored in Archives for later reference.

With The Early Edition you can skim through pages of article teasers or tap a headline to view the article in full screen. And if you want to share a story, the action button lets you copy or email the link or send it to Instapaper for reading later.

If you’re someone who checks the news throughout the day, tapping the Fetch button will collect new stories since your last fetch and add them to the front of the paper.

MusTech.Net Quick Text Review:

This is a must-have application for all those interested in an interesting way to read RSS feeds and import OPML files into an iPad RSS reader.   In my mind, this Application completely negates the need to create specific applications based on RSS topics for the iPad.   The real GEM of this program is how neat, useful, and visually appealing the integration is with RSS and OPML files.  

Make Early Edition  instantly useful by downloading the PO-EM file of RSS feeds.  This file contains DOZENS of Music Education related topics written by the top Music Educators using Online Technologies today:
