    Sidebar (beta): Personalized mobile news


    Today seems to be the absolute 'beta' day: 'Sidebar delivers what's new just for you'

    OK, after I've installed the app, I had to manually allow all permissions via options/applications to get it to run properly, and, to be honest, I am far from fully understanding all the features of this app. Yet, it is claiming, that it is delivering mobile content, just filtered to suit my personal needs, only. Hm. Curious how this could work? Me, too! Here's the link to download:

    The web site lists certain carriers that this will work on.
    It also has a bar code on the left of the page and as my carrier is not listed I scanned it.
    Downloaded no problem and installed in a few clicks.
    Seems fine at the moment but I will play tonight and tomorrow and give you all a review.

    Laters...

    Ok so this evening I have had a play and it gives lots of tips on start up.
    The screens dont rotate very quickly when scrolling but its not too slow.
    I have found the controls to delete content that doesnt interest me but I have not found where to get content that does?

    i have set the options in preferences but it only gives the options to be interested in:
    Entertainment
    Green Planet
    Humor
    Deals and Steals
    Health Mind & Body
    Style & Culture
    Modern Man
    News & Info

    It doesnt tell you what is in these sections so i guess they are going to upload content they think is right for you?

    One good thing i have found is the ability in the preferences/options to save the data to the SD card in my STORM.
    Lets hope it works or I will have no memory by tomorrow night.

    thats all i have for now.
    i will update again tomorrow night after I have had it 24 hours.
    (And yes, dont worry, I will supply this feedback to the makers as well).

    Laters......

    Without having chosen anything in preferences it suggests and DLs film and entertainment news, famous quotes, parenting advice, stock market and football news, and crazy laws - rotfl, with this combination I am now well prepared to start a new day

    What I like, that is offers a bar code reader!

    Hi Jason, Thanks for stopping by - maybe just a few more words on your app and why we all can't live without it?!

    Thanks!
