Introducing A6.Times, a user friendly electronic newspaper for your Windows Mobile device
that gives you news updates in real time. Discover a newspaper like you've never seen before.
A6.Times is an enhanced news feed aggregator of surprising power. What sets it apart
from conventional news aggregators is that it formats and displays news in a traditional
newspaper format, adapted to the small screen of your Windows Mobile device.
Synchronize it anytime and then bring it with you wherever you go. And, unlike ordinary newspapers,
it fits in your pocket.
RSS? RDF? ATOM?
If acronyms like RSS, RDF and ATOM are Greek to you, don't worry. They are simply
the names of different new technologies that allow you to more easily access the
news offered on websites.
But you won't need to understand those concepts to start using A6.Times.
As long as you know how to use a regular newspaper, you'll be OK.
It's on the Front Page!
The very first page to display in A6.Times is called the Front Page.
In fact, every time you start A6.Times up, it greets you with a reader-friendly news article,
randomly chosen from among the news you have not yet read.
If you like reading in this mode, just tap on the ?down? button and a brand new front page
will be generated for you to read.
The Front Page uses a header picture to give you an idea of the section of news displayed,
as well as offering a pleasing and attractive look to the news.
The next time you take a ride on a bus or a plane, use the Front Page function to browse
Configuring Your Newspaper
As soon as you become familiar with A6.Times, you will most likely want more
news. A lot
more maybe. That's when the Newspaper Configuration Window
comes in handy.
A6.Times allows you to choose from a wide selection of preconfigured sections already
linked with news sources from around the world. You can also add, modify or remove
the sections that are included in your newspaper. Or, if you want, go ahead and create
your own sections.
When you would like to add news sources to a section, you can add them yourself if you
already know the internet address. You can also use our online keyword search feature to
retrieve other news sources more in tune with your interests.
The Section Guide:
Divide and Conquer
Right after the Front Page, the Section Guide
is the logical next stop in any reading session.
It displays all your sections, the number of news articles in each section, and the number
of articles that have not yet been read.
If you feel you can’t live with a limited number of sections, don't worry.
The Section Guide can hold as many sections as you care to add.
