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.
Everybody is familiar with YouTube, so it is a good demonstration of the different design philosophies in use by both Android and Apple.
The Android YouTube app on the left is attractive, but is harder to read at a glance compared to the crisp design of the iPad app on the right.
