App of the week: Push Reader
What is it? An app that delivers push notifications of selected Google Reader RSS feeds. It’s a particularly useful app for journalists.
How is it of use to journalists? Many journalists follow news related to their beat or niche by setting up and following RSS feeds.
If you would like to receive push notifications on your iPhone of particular feeds set up in Google Reader, this iPhone app is for you.
One advantage is that you can set “do not disturb” times so that you don’t receive notifications during the night, for example. As with other apps with push notifications, you can select to turn off the sound alerts.
