100 Word Review: Foword

November 20, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

Foword is a news reader with filters and a good deal of style. Perhaps it has too much style and not enough filter. Foword pulls news items from a few non-cusomizeable sources and lets the user group and filter the news by keywords. Like Apple stuff? Create an Apple news group but filter out anything with the words "samsung", "lawsuit", "rumor" or "exclusive". That should give a reasonably interesting news feed. Unfortunately, the news sources are too limited to be of value. It's the mainstream news without the stream. I love the idea but the execution falls short.
