NetNewsWire picks up iPad support, adds new gestures and sharing

While version 4.0.1 might sound like a minor update for NetNewsWire for iPhone, it brings with it a fairly major new feature. NetNewsWire, the venerable RSS application that made its return to both iOS and Mac last month, is now a universal application, and is available for iPad, and includes support for iOS 9's iPad multitasking.

In addition to iPad support, NetNewsWire has added a couple of new gestures, letting you swipe right anywhere in an article to go back to the article list, and swiping right on an article row will mark it as read or unread. NetNewsWire now also supports the native iOS share sheet.

You can also now open OPML files in NetNewsWire, letting you quickly import a list of sites to follow. There have also been improvements to aspects of the dark theme, a Contact Support button has been added, and several bugs and crashes have been fixed.

You can get NetNewsWire for iPhone and iPad 4.0.1 from the App Store now.
