First Public Screen Shots

NubiNews is a news reader for the Android platform. It optimizes news articles from popular sources (such as YahooNews, Gizmodo) of various languages (English, Chinese and Japanese) for easy and quick viewing on your Android phone.

Articles can typically load 2x to 5x faster than the original web page. Also, the articles are formatted to remove horizontal scrolling so that they can be navigated easily.

NubiNews will be available from Android Market and SourceForge shortly. It will be released as open source under Apache 2 license.
