Bricking News iPhone App Now Available

Postby Staff » Mon Nov 08, 2010 3:32 pm





I'm very proud to announce the availability of Bricking News for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Bricking News brings together the most popular LEGO AFOL news sites in one convenient app: The Brothers Brick, Eurobricks, Brickset, and of course 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 their news feed, the Brickset tab includes a simple search form to search against their database of over 8,000 sets for a quick reference look up. There's also a flickr tab showcasing some of the top LEGO groups on flickr. For more information, please visit the Bricking News website.

Many thanks go out to Andrew from TBB, Huw from Brickset, and the admin staff at Eurobricks for their cooperation. And a shout out goes to Ryan Wood for the app icon.

You can view the Bricking News app on Apple for screenshots or purchase it directly from iTunes.

I emailed if there was plans to have an android version and the response I got was "not at the moment". :(

Don't worry, as soon as I upgrade phones I'll be pestering Ace constantly to port that app to Droids.

I just got this app for my iPod, and I love it!
This is an amazing app, it must have taken a lot of hard work. I just have one suggestion. You should add a link at the bottom of news articles that links to the full site, opening it up within the app, instead of Safari. It would work the same as the READ MORE link in the news portion of iBrickset.
Even without my suggestion in place, I still love the app!
If anyone has not gotten it yet, GO DOWNLOAD IT NOW!
