ReadOnly

ReadOnly is my first app in Swift. As a custom Weibo client, it provides an immersive reading experience by cutting off social features of the network.

Weibo is China’s Twitter counterpart, providing users a stream of trending news.

Although there are different Weibo clients available, official or non-official. ReadOnly stands out by cutting off all the social features, such as commenting, reposting, and liking. In addition, when tapping on a certain post, the reader is taken directly to the webpage linked in the post, instead of showing the comments and interactions with it. With the built-in read-later feature, readers can also bookmark posts or save them to their accounts.

Overall, the app functions more like a news reader than a Weibo client.
