The original Drudge Report app and first Drudge Report app authorized by Matt Drudge. All others are foreign imitators stealing valuable downloads from true Americans. Do not support copyright infringers.
This app maintains the column format unique to the Drudge Report while still taking advantage of the advanced user interface and rich capabilities of the iPhone and iTouch.
Instantly return to the column after you read a story with no reloading delay. Saves you time and money.
The Drudge Report was ranked the Top Politics publisher in a recent MediaPost ranking of online publishing sites.
More than 12 million monthly unique visitors scour the Drudge Report for the latest breaking news.
Unfortunately, the Drudge Report web site is not designed to take advantage of the advanced capabilities and rich user interfaces of the iPhone and iTouch.
The Drudge Report Mobile iPhone application solves this problem by displaying up to 200 links and linked images from the Drudge Report web site in a fast-loading and easy-to-select format.
The Drudge Report Mobile app is a customized web browser that is optimized for viewing and returning to the Drudge Report web site. It is designed so that the user can see the most important links from the Drudge Report web site, view the stories linked, and quickly return to the Drudge Report site to select another link.
Users can quickly see the images and scan the headlines and top 50 links in each of the three columns on the Drudge Report web site. Tapping a link opens a full-size window so that the linked news item can be read immediately or after only one double tap to enlarge the print. Thats all - no tap or one tap to select the column, one tap to select the item, and no taps or two taps to begin reading. When you are done reading the story, a single tap brings you quickly back to the scrollable lists of links.
YouTube videos function in the full-size viewing window so their is no need to exit the application if the linked story includes a video.
We have raced Drudge Report Mobile against other browsers and Drudge Report Mobile wins every time. Drudge Report Mobile loads the initial page slightly faster every time, the linked stories load at the same speed, and Drudge Report Mobile re-displays the initial Drudge Report page 20 times faster than other browsers.
Please keep in mind that sometimes the Drudge Report web site is very busy so any web browser would experience a delay. Also, keep in mind that if the Drudge Report has linked to a story on the web then the server hosting that story is probably very busy and may be experiencing a slowdown.
