Zite - one of my favourite iPad Apps for photography

I love my iPad 2. I use it far more than I ever thought I would. What I love most about it is that I can have news and blog feeds, web browser, tools and utilities altogether in one place, and it's easier to look at than my iPhone.

Zite is one of the apps I use everyday (and it's free!). It aggregates blog feeds and news posts about subjects of my choice - I have feeds set up for photography (of course), gadgets, social media, marketing and a few others.

Not only does it feed in posts from the blogs I've chosen to follow through Google Reader (it hooks in to a number of popular RSS feed readers), but it then discovers more blogs with similar or relevant content. I've come across some very helpful and interesting articles as a result of Zite's discovery tools.

I love how it lays out the articles magazine-style. It includes images and headlines, and then you can click into each article to read the full post.

Within each article you can share to a bunch of social media sites, email the link to friends, or use the Read it Later to bookmark those posts you like best, and want to be able to refer to later.

I find this "personalised magazine" style of presenting content lets me scan through large numbers of stories (as you would flick through a newspaper) and read more about the ones that most interest me! It's perfect for reading when I'm on the bus, or anywhere where I find myself with a few spare minutes.

If you have an iPad, check it out!
