I came across a great new app that I love. It is called LDS News. I like to read all about things going on in the church and have lots of feeds in my google reader, but this just put’s them together in one nice app… my little Mormon news channel!
I sent the developer some ideas:
- Add Google Reader / Twitter Share options
- Add ability to add our own feeds
Below is a some information about the app.
“LDS News is an RSS news reader supporting feeds from multiple sources plus provides easy access to the three Church YouTube Channels as well as integrated YouTube support for LDS.org Home Page video releases.
