Last week, the developers of an iPhone/iPad app contacted me about using my RSS feed to pull content for their new application. It’s a pretty cool idea, so I said “go for it!”

PhotoVerse collects photography related news and blog posts like any RSS reader, and makes it handy for anybody interested in photography to keep up on their reading while also allowing them to share the articles on social media networks. In essence, it’s a preloaded feed reader just for the photography nuts.

The developers also asked me if I would like to test out the application… but I’m on Android, so no luck. Instead, I asked if you guys could have some freebies or discounts. Here’s what we have to hand out.


I have 5 coupon codes for a free copy of the app. It goes for $0.99 in the iTunes store, so you can go buy it if you don’t want to wait for the raffle.

If you do want a free copy, watch the Epic Edits Twitter account for the start of the raffle. I’ll do it within the day, and the first 5 to reply will get the coupon.

Anybody out there have this app already? How is it?

Wait, wait – the idea is you pay extra for a feed reader that can only show a preset list of feeds? That’s…

Well… yes. I know it might sound odd at first, but it’s a $1 app. And you also have somebody adding more feed sources as they pop up and weeding out the old ones as they die off. I could see it being useful for the folks who just want a good solid set of feeds to browse through on their phone or iPad.

@Janne, this is not your regular feed reader app, it is specialized for photography from beginners to pro. We work very hard to screen every content and new content is being added and refined perpetually, so the users get the best content. I know choices are important too and we also offer the choice to filter out what you want to watch in real time, now I just sync it a few times in a day and i know whats going on in the photography world. Having said that we are working on to let the users provide their own content/feed/web site and we can keep a tab on those.

Not only we keep track of latest happenings, we also offer in app video and audio play back so you can catch up with your podcasts too. It works in all orientation for increased reading experience.

@Brian, did you thought of having a mobile web app on top of ? I think it might be useful for your users that are on the go! I am one of them ;)
