A popular newsreader app that’s been banned from the Google Play store is now making its way to the iOS App Store, with the newsreader’s developer explaining that the app will be able to bypass Google Reader ads if you don’t want to get caught up in the ads.
Newsreader is a free app that allows users to download the News app from the App Store and use the app to read, share, and browse news articles.
In the app, users can browse articles by subject, author, date, and more.
Users can opt-out of ads by tapping on the opt-in box.
But newsreader developer Kishan Kumar, who also works as a software engineer for the news publisher Reuters, told Business Insider that his app has been blocked from Google Reader in the past.
When asked why, Kumar explained that newsreader was blocked from the app because the app was designed to collect and store data that was not intended for use.
Kumar also noted that Newsreader users who choose to opt out can still view articles that have been published by the News publisher.
However, the publisher will be blocked from viewing the articles that were downloaded from the Newsreader app if it detects that the user has opted-out from the ad-blocking feature.
In an email to Business Insider, Google Reader told BusinessInsider that News reader was “a newsreader that collects information that is not intended to be used for any purpose other than to display content for the News reader.”
Newsreader users can find the app in the News App Store on both the iOS and Android platforms.
It currently comes in the free version, which costs $0.99.
