Keeping up with current events and finding interesting things to read is a great way to use the iPad. The popular apps like Flipboard and Zite are nice, but this app has a twist that makes following the news really cool.
While the app pulls news of interest from popular online sources, it also lets you connect to your Twitter account. This lets you pull news that is being read by the people you follow on Twitter. You click on a friend's Twitter avatar and instantly see the news articles that your friend is reading.
The news is presented in an attractive format that takes full advantage of the iPad display.
