First off I'm sort of a news junky. I've been working out a nice way to consume news on my iPad and in my experience I've actually managed to develop a nice reading flow that's better than my experience on Mac. If you have a workflow for consuming news feel free to share your favorite applications here! Before I got my iPad I used Twitter in place of RSS. I would locate news outlets that had tailored information I was interested in, follow them and then put them in their respective lists on Twitter. Naturally when I found out that Flipboard supported Twitter lists I was quite happy, so I've since been using that to keep up with a multitude of niche interests in the news with Flipboard thanks to Twitter. I also decided to use the Feedly app separately to follow new sources of news and add them to their respective news lists. Feedly excels in being able to locate similar sources to what I'm interested in and helps me discover new content faster than my Twitter feeds. I've found that for discovery Feedly seems to be my go-to app, while Flipboard helped with the overall transition from Mac. So I got to looking into both services and they both support an app called Pocket. This app allows me to view content offline and directly save from articles from both Flipboard and Feedly with a simple tap. This is really nice when I want to save data or simply have no access to it. Both Pocket and Feedly have night viewing modes on iOS so it's quite nice. My only qualm with Flipboard is it does not have a night viewing mode so it has the potential to be harder on the eyes. In this case though I can save articles to Pocket and read them there. I've found that pocket does a good job at providing a parsed down reading layout for full articles, but has some trouble with certain sites. Overall it is a quality application. Both Feedly and Flipboard only provide partial articles and a link to the content creators website in some cases. This can be kind of annoying. If there's a particular interest I have that is covered in a news article I'll generally save it to Pocket and transfer it to a notebook of mine in Evernote. Honorable mentions that I use a little less: Storehouse - A content creation and consumption app that allows for inline videos, pictures and text in a beautiful layout. Follow authors you enjoy. The application is more of a walled garden, heavy on visual content. The Wider Image - An app based around content from Photojournalists from Reuters, most articles generate an equal amount of interesting photography and text. You can explore a map and find photojournalism in a certain part of the world. Very nice option. Drippler - An app that recognizes your device type and provides a feed based on tech articles that may be relevant to you. Comes up with a lot of information on free/new applications and accessories for my iPad. Somewhat annoying that there is no option to open webpages in Safari. Note: All of these apps have been optimized for iPad.
