Back on April 1st, fellow blogger Steve Overton posted about a free news app called Zite. His link is below as it has a great video demo and link to the app store.
I have been using it for a while also and I really like it. The app is easy to set up and use. After a bit, it will actually learn what you like. Steve hit the nail on the head when he said that much of it was "pleasing on the eye." I keep customizing the topics and adding more stuff. The app works very well, and I have not experienced any negative issues with it.
The best part is that it's free. You can't go wrong with that.
