  • Pulse is another iPad news aggregator like Flipboard, only instead of building its sections based on social feeds it uses RSS feeds. Like Flipboard, it presents the info in a visually-compelling format using images from the articles that it is linking to. You can use the RSS feeds for TechRepublic and/or Tech Sanity Check if you'd like to use Pulse to keep up with the latest posts.

  • Another great news aggregator for the iPad is SkyGrid, but its specialty is pulling together news on hot trends in real time. It's not nearly as visual as Flipboard or Pulse, but SkyGrid helps fill in the gaps by surfacing hot news that might have been missed by your favorite RSS sources and your social network.
