iPad App of the Week!

May 4, 2010

If you were a fly on the wall at my house today, firstly I’m intrigued as to how you came to be reading this blog, but secondly you’d probably have wondered what sort of condition was causing me to jump around punching the air so uncontrollably.

One month after wading into the iPad sea, somehow we managed to catch a cracker of a wave thanks to Apple’s iTunes team by becoming this week’s iPad App of the Week. For me, possibly the nicest thing about this is knowing the criteria that The Early Edition had to meet in order to even be considered:

Each week we’re spotlighting a favorite that illustrates how apps are changing the way we live and play. Now you can create your own personal, daily newspaper based on your own news sources with The Early Edition.

Changing the way we live and play”. That is such an amazing compliment coming from Apple, and it’s confirmation that we’ve made a great start at what we’re trying to achieve with The Early Edition.

Difficult as it is, we’ve got our heads back down and we’re ploughing through 1.1 with most of the groundwork done and the finish line in sight. We know there are a lot of people eagerly waiting and probably checking their updates tab each morning. Thanks for your patience and we’re looking forward to changing the way you consume written media even more, one update at a time.

  1. Say what you will about the app store, but it presents even small developers with chances to succeed, as you have very much proven! Congratulations, you really deserve it!

  2. Congrats on app of the week. I can tell you it is definitely one of the apps I am most looking forward to when the iPad comes to Canada.

  3. Congrats!! Well deserved.

  4. Congrats… I’ve gone pretty app insane since buying my iPad, and yours is by far my absolute favorite.

  5. Congrats! I have been following since your last visit in NY to get the new iPad :-) Your app rocks!

  6. What a thing to wake up to. Congradulations!

  7. Thanks to all of you guys for your very kind words. It’s so rewarding to know that people are enjoying our work. :)

  8. No updates on the blog in 8ish days, does that mean the new updates are being submitted? I sure hope so. Looking much forward to google reader option, feed discovery, and other broadcast integrations (twitter,fb,posterous, etc).

    love the app!

    • @Nate – We’ve been quiet because we’ve been very busy on the update. We’ve set ourselves a goal of having it ready to submit to Apple at the end of this week. *sigh* Lots of work still to do, but it’s getting exciting. Stay tuned!

  9. Absolutely love your app! Thank you for the time,care and attention you’ve obviously put into it. Enjoy your well deserved success!!!
