Whats New in v3.0

iPad Support - Gist is now a universal app! iPad support was one of the most requested features and I’m happy to say that it is now easier than ever to browse and read summaries of the latest news on your iPad.
iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus Compatibility - v3.0 also takes advantage of the new screen sizes of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus! The app has been fully updated for the new Retina HD displays with @3x graphics, etc.
Landscape Support - Another feature in this version is the addition of Landscape mode for all devices. As an added bonus, iPhone 6 Plus users can also take advantage of the special “split screen” view when using their device in landscape.
iOS 8 Support - Gist is now fully compatible with iOS 8 and will require this version going forward.
• Gist v3.0 also includes minor UI changes and bug fixes.


Gist is probably one of the best looking news apps I've seen in a while as well... it still earns a spot on my iPhone for when I want to catch up on news quickly.
