Can two social startups unite and give users the best of both worlds in one place? That's the question being asked by Feedly and Buffer as they announce a partnership to change the way we discover and share content.
Even with the huge popularity of social web platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit, RSS feeds are still the easiest and most reliable way to get the news you want. Flipboard and Reeder may be the most popular of the discovery-style and conventional RSS apps, respectively, but they’re neither the only options nor necessarily the best you can get on an iPad. Along with those standout options, we've highlighted a total of 10 sleek, stylish, and functional RSS readers for the iPad. Pick your favorite way to stay up to date!
Amidst a hectic day, you may only have spare moments to catch up on the latest world headlines and developments.

With 24-hour news cycles bombarding our eyes with headlines every second, it can be overwhelming to try and keep up with the main news of the day, let alone digesting it beyond a scrolling headline or RSS link.

With a Neuro-Linguistics Programming and Artificial Intelligence-powered algorithm (seriously), Summly peruses a plethora of sources to curate 400-character summaries of the day's hottest stories that fit neatly on the iPhone screen, without needing to scroll.
There are plenty of unique and colorful ways to read news on the iPad.
