The Best Personalized Magazine Apps for the iPad

I admit it, I am a news addict. I used to watch cable news constantly in order to keep up with what was happening in the world. However, a few years ago I started using the web to fill my need for news. And ever since I purchased an iPad 2, I've found new ways to enjoy and access a regular dose of timely updates.



A few weeks ago I wrote a review of Zite on my 
iPhonelife.com blog. Zite is a personalized magazine app that I started using right after I purchased my iPad 2. Over the course of a few months, I came to depend on Zite for almost all of my news.

Most writers write because they love to write. They can't imagine doing anything but writing. Sometimes that means foregoing the comfort of a 9-to-5 job with benefits in lieu of consistent freelance work.

Dragon Go App Review

  If you use the computer software Dragon Nuance you will really enjoy Dragon Go.  It's a very simple to use application for the iphone.  Although, I have been using it on my ipad 2 at 2X.  The graphics aren't as good on the ipasd 2 but it does work.  They have added several new features such as Netflix, Web Searches, News, Music, and more.  If you can access it on the mobile web, Dragon Go can find it.  You simply tap the little red button and speak.  It does some processing and bam, there's what your looking for on the screen.  I have used it quite a bit and it has excellent accuracy.
