Riversip Entertainment News Released!

We’re happy to announce that we’ve released our second iPhone app – Riversip Entertainment News.

As its name suggests, Riversip Entertainment News brings the power of Riversip to entertainment news. The app covers news about Celebs, Music, TV, Movies and more…

We’re really excited about this app, as we’re for the first time applying the power of our Riversip platform to a very “soft” topic as entertainment, and the results look great! Never before was it easier to get the best news on your favorite celeb, TV show or anything else you fancy in entertainment. As always – Riversip delivers the most-talked-about stories first, so you know that each second you devote to your favorite news on Riversip is spent on the hottest stories.

Personally, we’ve already started following our favorite topics here. I (Itamar) am now busy reading about The Dark Knight Rises, but hopefully I’ll get back to work soon enough 😉

The app is available to download here – and we’re eager to hear your feedback! Let us know what you think.

Android users – don’t worry, you’re not forgotten! An Android app is just around the corner… If you’re willing to participate as a beta tester for it – drop us your name and email in the ‘Contact Us’ form on our site. Don’t forget to tell us which app you’d like to test – technology or entertainment news.

One last thing – if you’d like to get a Riversip app for a topic we’re not covering yet (e.g. – International News, Sports, etc..) – please let us know via Riversip’s Uservoice forum.

As always, we want to hear from you! You can contact us in a number of ways, from the contact form on Riversip.com to @riversip on Twitter, Riversip on Facebook our if it’s a product idea – Riversip’s Uservoice forum.

Thank you for your support!
The Riversip team

Following The TechCrunch Post

Hi Everyone,
Following TechCrunch’s coverage of Riversip, we have a huge spike in downloads and usage – and naturally, our servers are being overloaded. You may, therefore, experience some periods during which our servers will be unreachable.
We’re working to overcome it, and we hope all the problems will be behind us soon!
Thank you for your patience,
The Riversip team

UPDATE: The problems were quite temporary and are behind us now! Thank you for your patience and understanding 🙂
