German-Made App, Screenfeeder, Enhances the Display of Your Social Feeds

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Berlin based nxtbgthng has released their latest iOS app, Screenfeeder, which offers up a more visually pleasing experience for checking your social network feeds on your iPhone or iPad.  Instead of giving you full control of your social network site, and needing to include all the bells and whistles of the standalone apps, Sccreenfeeder takes a more minimalistic approach and shows you only the essential content without you needing to physically interact with your device.  In its current version you can connect and display your Twitter, Foursquare, Instagram and Dribbble accounts.

The idea may not seem all that practical at first, especially for those of you that follow hundreds of Twitter feeds, but it is for the times when you want to work on your computer or watch TV and still be updated with the latest information from your friends.  For example, if a friend posts a new Instagram photo, the full image is displayed against a stylistically blurred copy in the background, which delivers a pleasing viewing experience.  When a friend checks in to a new place using Foursquare, Screenfeeder displays a map of the location in the background and Tweets will be displayed using images and color schemes from the profile pages of your friends.  As an added bonus, the app is optimized to display on your TV using a HDMI cable or streamed wirelessly using an AppleTV.

Screenfeeder is available on the App Store for $1.99 and is an example of some great German design work.  It is one of the most visually pleasing apps I have seen released in a while.  If your interested in the app, you can grab it from iTunes using the source link.
