BreakingNewsBreakingNews

A few weeks back we checked out the beta for BreakingNews and were totally impressed. This cool little app tosses up a scrolling news ticker on your homescreen, allowing you to get breaking news without ever jumping into an app. You can set up your own RSS feeds (up to 5) and display up to 20 headlines from each. Set the refresh rate anywhere down to 5 minutes and quickly check out the articles in your BlackBerry Browser with a few key taps. All in all a great app if you want to keep up with news on the go. You can grab it on sale for $2.99 in the CrackBerry App Store.

Contest: We have 50 copies of BreakingNews to give away. Just leave a single comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PDT.

Razor213

I tried out the Beta version on my Torch. It hung up and froze my phone a lot. I would lock it and try to open it would freeze cause the application was running or updating in the background. Sooo annoying. Slowed down the camera opening. Also you disable or turn it off and when you reboot it comes On by default. Did not like it. I tolerated it for 2 weeks then removed it.....I'm glad I did....

Shao128

Thats exactly what the BETA thread was for.  You do understand what BETA is right? And what the purpose of the BETA thread was?  

Thanks for bashing the BETA in the product announcement thread. Please don't BETA test any of my other apps in the future.

jpro757

This will allow me to taylor the news I want and not have to open an app to see what's going on.

keizerjrr

I have been in the Beta from the beginning. I have watch the application evolve and mature. Shao has been more than responsive and enthusiastic with his updates and improvements. It has been a priveldge to participate and would be an honor to have the release version of the application running on my BB Torch. I currently run 4 news feeds and 3 ea headlines. The application has performed flawlessly for the past 10 days. I would recommend this wholeheartedly. Thanks Shao for continuing to feed my BB addiction.

jimgoun

Now this is interest app... all I need is larger BB screen
Come on BB!!! can we have the torch on Verizon....

Accio_BBandCoffee

I wouldn't buy this, but would love to win it!

enxne

Ive got my browser home page set to my igoogle account. Which consists of a hand full of news feeds and the weather. To basicaly have all that right on the main screen would be great. It would also make reading headlines at work much easier. Sorry boss.

painfulleap1

Nice, my homepage background is rather bland and blank... Having scrolling news on there would be amazing.

When selecting the winners randomly, Try to randomly select me ;)

thetnaung

i always have a lot of rss feeds. would it be integrated with social feeds or need to add the url manually again in that app?

samismum

This sounds cool. And since I lost Viigo I could use something like this.

donefsky

For those who don't know it yet, this app is not only informative but dresses up what are otherwise mundane, boring home screens, regardless of the running theme. This is a novel idea that has done quite a job making my device something I pay attention to again......

FatSajak

Oh man I gotta get in on this!!!

basicbill

This just in....I wanna win!

paspals

another smart-app from shaosoft... double thumbs up for the concept!! it's so simple, "natural" and yet here firstly seen... hope people behind the app will benefit not just materially but will receive some credit for porting this to BB-platform(some rewards)... many great apps come from shaosoft and now this will add to the number count... congrats...

jojo212

Can I have a copy please?

coolkoo
