I’ll think we’ve all been there: you get into a subway car, and just as the doors are closing, you realize that you’ve forgotten to take your phone out, pull to refresh, and wait 10 seconds to download the latest news articles to read offline. You curse under your breath and switch back to Angry Birds.
Today we’re pleased to introduce a new feature called Paper Boy. Simply set your home location so that whenever you leave home, News.me downloads your latest news in the background.
Super impressive feature. I’d like Instapaper or Pocket to pick this up.
News.me does a really good job of getting articles I’ll care about, but I’m afraid that my subway time over switching to it will mean the stuff that I choose to read will languish longer in a queue.
