After its mandatory stint in app-approval purgatory, our brand new PopSci Reader for iPhone/iPod touch is now available. It's a great way to catch up on PopSci.com on the go with full text and images, and it's free.
The app grabs our RSS feed and and presents the most recent ten articles, complete with images. Currently you can browse the main homepage feed, as well as feeds for Gear & Gadgets, the Environment and DIY. And if you want to read articles for offline use, your last pull of the feed remains cached in the app even when you don't have a connection, so a quick refresh before you lose signal can keep you reading on the subway or on a plane.
The app was developed by our friend Dave Prochnow--many thanks to him for his great work! We'll surely be making tweaks and improvements in the future, so let us know how you like it!
