PhotoBlogs Reader

Beaufield Atelier
Enjoy Great Photography, Distraction-Free.

PhotoBlogs Reader is a visual RSS reader that curates blogs and preserves the photographs for a comfortable and elegant viewing experience. It integrates and synchronizes with Google Reader to cache on your iPhone/iPod or iPad the photographs for later offline viewing. By stripping away the original layout elements from feed entries it optimizes all the photographs for display on your iPhone/iPod or iPad touch's screen. An app that gets out of the way so you can focus on photography.

PhotoBlogs Reader Features:

• Google Reader Integration

• Local Caching
Stores locally all the photos, covers and thumbnails for fast retrieval during subsequent sessions and to reduce the amount of downloaded data.

• Aspect Ratio Preservation

Option to fetch the entire recordset of past entries available in the Google Reader account.

• Offline Mode
