Bricking News application for iPhone

Posted by ,

Ace over at fbtb has written an excellent new application for iPhone/iPod/iPad called Bricking News.

Bricking News brings together the most popular LEGO AFOL news sites in one convenient app: The Brothers Brick, Eurobricks, Brickset, and From Bricks To Bothans. Each news article is a full text feed complete with pictures so you only have to tap once to read the full story. In addition to the Brickset news feed, the Brickset tab includes a simple search form to search the database for a quick reference look up. There’s also a flickr tab showcasing some of the top LEGO groups on flickr.

This is an great app that will make it easy for you to keep up-to-date with LEGO news while you are out and about. You can find more information and see screenshots at the Bricking News website or the iTunes page. It costs a very reasonable $0.99 or 59p.

Downloaded this last night, I was impressed. I already use an RSS reader application on my iPhone to keep up to date with all my favourite Lego sites so I was dubious I would use this much, however, the way it presents the information and the links to flickr are very nice so I think it will get some use.

Now we just need an Android version. ;)

Great. Now I would be even happier to know if you could add such a feature to Brickset, a way to load all these news articles onto your own front page :)

Sounds excellent - I'll be getting this.

@absolutelylez, technically that would be easy but the webmasters would not be that happy as it potentially takes traffic away from them.
