As some of you may know, I develop apps in addition to writing about them. My latest adventure is the free Clock Weather News app for iPhone, which features a retro flip clock front and center hovering over beautiful HD images that reflect the current weather. The weather portion at the top also includes an extended forecast.
I think the coolest aspect of the app is the RSS feed at the bottom. Now, it currently supports Google Reader, but an update is underway for when Google gets rid of their RSS service in July. I’m hoping the don’t.
But why use Google Reader you ask? It’s my drug of choice. Sure, there are plenty RSS readers out there, but Google’s has been my go-to for so long that I just want to enjoy every bit of it until they officially shut it down. From the amount of downloads I’m getting … I don’t think I’m the only one!

I’ve had this idea for some time now and want to thank developers Oxana Kovalchuck and Alexey Zavrazhniy who helped bring it into reality. They are an awesome duo so please contact me if you’d like their info.
