Helio on Top feed reader

Helio on Top

Helio just launched, and every phone has a feed reader combined with unlimited data service. The reader is named “Helio on Top,” displaying new messages on the bottom third of your screen as they come in. Selecting the message displays the full article and you can also browse through three items or channels at a time. Helio on Top is graphically very similar to Motorola’s Screen3 reader.

I like the small square images on the left of each alert. Given the tiny screen it’s important for these images to add context but also create a more comporting feeling that the user is not just buried in text.
