London, United Kingdom – Phantom Fish today is pleased to announce the release of Byline Free, a fully-featured free version of the popular RSS news reader and offline web browser for iPhone and iPod touch. Byline Free is supported by iPhone-specific ads from Fusion Ads’ new Touch network.
“We’re thrilled to be able to bring Byline to a wider audience with advertising that doesn’t suck,” said Milo Bird, the developer of Byline. “Fusion Ads are beautiful, unobtrusive, and – because the Touch network is exclusively for other iPhone apps – totally relevant.”
Byline synchronizes up to 1000 new items, starred items, notes, and folders with a free Google Reader account. Items are viewed by folder or individual feed, and a new edit mode allows starring items and marking read/unread in bulk. Articles and their links are displayed in an inline web browser, and can be sent in full by email or shared using Twitter.
Byline provides offline access to all articles, including embedded images. In addition, Byline’s offline browsing feature offers instant access to complete web pages. Byline uses statistical analysis to automatically cache web pages for feeds with truncated content. Byline Free includes all the same features as the popular paid version of the app.
