Thanks to all MacDailyNews app users for your patience!

MDN is MacDailyNews in your pocket! Now, even on the go, you won’t miss a story.

Just like MacDailyNews, the MDN app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch features daily news about Apple, Mac OS X, the Macintosh platform, iPad, iPhone, iPod, and more. It’s where the Mac community goes to discuss these daily Apple-related news items in their own words with real-time Reader Feedback.

The MDN app offers Push Notifications. When enabled, the MDN app will notify users when each new article is posted. To control the various aspects of notifications (Sounds, Alerts, Badges), on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, tap Settings > Notifications > MDN.

If you are asked for permission to use your device’s location services, that is for iAds (Apple Inc.) to deliver more relevant ads to you. If you decline, your ads will likely be less useful to you; you might get ads for snow shovels in Singapore or ads for a Seattle pizza place in New York. The amount of ads remains exactly the same in this latest version of the app and is unaffected by your decision to allow localization info or not.

Features include:
•- Quick, up-to-the minute Apple-related news headlines
•- Visited headlines change color; so you know what you’ve read at a glance
– Push notifications
•- Easy-to-read layouts for both portrait and landscape modes
– Full article display with dynamic Reader Feedback
– One-button tap for instant, dedicated feedback
– Easy login screen for registered users
– AAPL stock ticker with NASDAQ index

What’s New in version 2.2.9:
– Adapted for new MacDailyNews website.
– Dedicated server for Push Notifications.
– Content loading/reloading greatly improved.
– Numerous bug fixes and improvements.

Reminder: To manage Push Notifications on your iOS device goto Settings>Notifications>MDN. There you can designate Sounds, Alerts, and/or Badges to be on or off.

If you already have the app, you should quit it – or even delete it – prior to installing the new version in order to avoid any first run issues.

NOTE: Push Notifications will not be active right off the bat, but will start ASAP. Thank you.

Since everything changed with the new site, some to do list items remain, including:
• Integrating WordPress logins
• Formatting content area and font size adjustments on iPad version
• Other minor and backend adjustments
• Push Notifications to be activated ASAP!

  1. If you already have the app, you should quit it – or even delete it – prior to installing the new version in order to avoid any first run issues.

  2. no problems here, loaded and worked out of the gate on a ipad2

    But as easy as it is, I like all the extra busyness the web page gives me, polls, and most commented on… I bet I keep them next to each other

  3. Finally!! Thanks for finally giving me my MDN App back! I had a Safari bookmark on my home screen and that worked pretty well but I really like the ability to save articles. And to those who are complaining about the type size — at least on the iPhone I can’t see the slightest difference between MDN on Safari vs the App. Aside from the push and ability to save articles, they look identical to me. Gonna check out how it looks on my iPad now but thanks again for finally re-releasing the App!

  4. Yea it’s back!
    Unfortunately it still has the font size choices of small and smaller. Would have liked the option to read MDN without my glasses like I can with Apple’s iBooks app.

    Please MDN adapt Apple’s method for changing font sizes in a future update like they do in iBooks.

    Please. 🙂

      1. Thank you!
        It will be much appreciated.
        Especially for those of us who (as “David” put it on page two of the comments) don’t have “young eyes.”
