SB Nation's iPhone app hits 1.1, learns a little about z-buttoning

Friends. Smartphone users. People who don't use Android. I have outstanding, compulsory news: SB Nation iPhone app v1.1 is now available in the App Store, complete with a number of requests you commented about that will, so far as I can tell, make it much easier for you to comment about requests in the future.

So it remains a dedicated app for reading Viva El Birdos and SB Nation's other 300, mostly less-Cardinals-related blogs. Version 1.1 includes some exciting bullet points, besides:

  • Faster loading comments
  • Vastly improved comment experience including the ability to jump to the next unread comment, mark comments as read and reply in-line. (This is, from what I could tell on the video demo, the mobile equivalent of a cross between the z-button and in-browser searching [NEW] during the 2006 World Series. Which is pretty great.)
  • FanPosts
  • Blog colors
  • An in-app browser
  • Compatibility with iOS 5
