Looking for MacNN beta testers
I've got a few beta codes for MacNN users for Broadersheets' first iPhone app (and our first product launch)

Broadersheet is an intelligent newspaper for the iPhone. It learns what topics you care about, and what sources you trust. So if you want your political news from The New York Times, and you really dig Stephen Fry's posts, Broadersheet learns that based on how you interact with your news [mark as boring, share it, star it, etc]

No screenshots, but its gorgeous. You'll recognize the designer as a MacNN local :)

We're launching early October, but are looking for some keen beta testers to put the system through its paces a few weeks early.

You can find more information here, and sign up here.

Prefix your name with "MACNN" and I'll prioritize those, we only get 100 so we're a bit short.

Sounds like a decent idea, how much Canadian news content will it have?

some. you can suggest new sources - which we hope you will!

are there any you can think of off hand?

I'll give it a whirl for the UK stance if you're keen :)

that'd be great. we'd love your feedback anyway irrespective of where you're based too :)

I'd like to give it a shot.

So there is a public version now in the app store for anyone that didn't get in the beta, get it here! :D

I'll hand out some promo codes tomorrow if anyone is interested. We might want testers for new features if people really dig our stuff, too.
