RSS? RDF? ATOM?
If acronyms like RSS, RDF and ATOM are Greek to you, donвЂ™t worry. They are simply the names of different new technologies that allow you to more easily access the news offered on websites.
But you wonвЂ™t need to understand those concepts to start using A6.Times. As long as you know how to use a regular newspaper, youвЂ™ll be OK.
ItвЂ™s on the Front Page!
The very first page to display in A6.Times is called the Front Page. In fact, every time you start A6.Times up, it greets you with a reader-friendly news article, randomly chosen from among the news you have not yet read.
If you like reading in this mode, just tap on the ?down? button and a brand new front page will be generated for you to read.
The Front Page uses a header picture to give you an idea of the section of news displayed, as well as offering a pleasing and attractive look to the news.
The next time you take a ride on a bus or a plane, use the Front Page function to browse the headlines.
Configuring Your Newspaper
As soon as you become familiar with A6.Times, you will most likely want more news. A lot more maybe. That's when the Newspaper Configuration Window comes in handy.
A6.Times allows you to choose from a wide selection of preconfigured sections already linked with news sources from around the world. You can also add, modify or remove the sections that are included in your newspaper. Or, if you want, go ahead and create your own sections.
When you would like to add news sources to a section, you can add them yourself if you already know the internet address. You can also use our online keyword search feature to retrieve other news sources more in tune with your interests.
The Section Guide:
Divide and Conquer
Right after the Front Page, the Section Guide is the logical next stop in any reading session. It displays all your sections, the number of news articles in each section, and the number of articles that have not yet been read.
If you feel you canвЂ™t live with a limited number of sections, don't worry. The Section Guide can hold as many sections as you care to add.
The Bookmarks Manager: keep trace of interesting articles
A6.Times allows you to bookmark interesting news. When a news has been bookmarked, it is kept as long as you wish into the Bookmarks Manager for quick retrieval. The news can even be sent by email to whoever you want directly from the Bookmarks Manager.
