I know Apple released a News app. and there are many other news readers for the iPhone and iPad, but Flipboard still remains my favorite. No more bookmarking all my favorite websites and social media sites and then opening 20 tabs to scan for recent news.
Here is a quick video showing you a bit about how Flipboard works. In short... sign up for free and follow your interests and you will get custom magazine style view of favorite sites.
