Last week we wrote about Giganews Android app. Since then they’ve released an iOS version. The two releases came within a couple days of each other. Allowing Giganews members with iPhone, iPad or Android devices to view control panel stats and disconnect VyprVPN connections. You can head on over to the Giganews control panel app page to learn more about the app or download it free from the iTunes store.
The Giganews app is mainly an informational tool. For Diamond users the app allows you to disconnect from VyprVPN remotely. While members on metered accounts (Pearl, Bronze, Silver) can use it to track their usage stats. The same as you would see by logging into the control panel and viewing usage.
We’re interested in what direction Giganews takes in the future. As many of us rely more and more on iPad / Android tablets and mobile phones. Having an app that allows you to download from Usenet (like EZ Global Search) would be a cool addition to an already feature rich Giganews service.
What might Giganews do next to enhance the service for mobile users? There are lots of opportunities. Including apps for some of their current features – VyprVPN and Dump Truck. At the core though we’re interested to see if they bring Usenet downloads to mobile users. Mimo mobile perhaps?
