The Week U.S. -- free news app

image

The Week is a weekly print news magazine as well as a popular news destination online that offers a digest of news and commentary from magazines, newspapers, and websites. The publisher says that the magazine is the "fastest growing news and opinion magazine in America." Now there's a free iPhone app, The Week U.S., that gives you access to their content. I love news apps, especially when they're free.

I have downloaded and used multiple news readers in my journey for a perfect match. Many of them are very pleasing on the eye, and do consolidate news well, but they just didn't seem to complete me, if you know what I mean. Zite (free) is a new app that is very close in appearance to Flipboard, but the similarity stops there. Zite will let you customize your news AND learn what you like as you read, so that it delivers more stories that you are interested in, the longer you use it.

Girl Scouts have officially entered the 21st century, although pictures and marketing may still suggest otherwise :)

Girl Scouts of America has made an agreement with Intuit to utilize the company's GoPayment app in order to accept credit card purchases via iPhone from hungry cookie customers. Now, you no longer have to have cash to buy the great cookies from the girls in front of the grocery stores.



Why I subscribed to The Daily

When I first tried The Daily, my response was, "Wow, this is cool. It makes me think of something that Steve Jobs would create." Then I read in the news reports that in fact he was actually involved in this project by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. Simply put, The Daily feels visionary — different from other news apps.

Time magazine recently announced its list of 50 Best iPhone Apps 2011 divided into the following categories: games, on the go, lifestyle, music & photography, entertainment, and social. I see that Instapaper is on the list. That was one I wished I had downloaded to my iPad before taking my recent flight to San Francisco for Macworld. It lets you capture web content for offline viewing. Overall, this is an excellent selection of must-have apps.
