Skitch is a simple image tool that is available on both the iPad and Android. Both apps are very similar, but the interface controls on the Android app (left) are split between the left and right margins on the screen. The iPad app (right) has all of the controls on the left margin, making them easier to operate by touch.
These two news apps use a magazine layout approach.
Feedly Android (left) vs. Zite iPad (right)
Zite is in a league by itself as it is one of the best apps on my platform. It produces a solid magazine from my preferred news sources and is outstanding in both function and design.
Feedly is a close second, but not as visually appealing as Zite.
I do a lot of web research on the tablets, and these two apps take a different approach to present my news in an easy format for reference.
Taptu Android (left) vs. FlipBoard iPad (right)
FlipBoard is similar to Zite, and builds a magazine layout that is not only informative but is very easy to read at a glance.
Taptu uses a multi-line approach to do the same thing, and is harder to use than FlipBoard due to the staggering amount of information on the screen at one time.
