If you own one of Apple’s “magical and revolutionary” iPads, chances are you’ve already utilized the device’s glorious 9.7″ HD screen to do a variety of things – including reading the news.
Indeed, users are spoiled for choice when it comes to finding a decent news reading app for the iPad. Steve gave Pulse News Reader a bit of special attention at this year’s WWDC keynote – an RSS reader app that exists along scores of others, including Reeder for iPad; a sleek, feature-packed Google Reader app that is my own personal favorite.
In addition to these, some might prefer actual newspaper apps – and by this I mean iPad apps like NYT Editors’ Choice or The Times of London: applications that offer newspaper content in a newspaper form.
However, if you’re looking for an app that bridges these two realms, look no further: The Daily Digg – an app recently discovered by MacStories - does this by presenting a variety of Digg categories in a newspaper-style setting.
Tapping on an article opens it up for you to read, and running along the bottom of the screen is a bar highlighting the different sections of Digg. Touching a section brings up the relevant articles in a flash.
Additionally, the application makes use of the iPad’s 9.7″ screen perfectly, not letting an ounce of space go to waste – which is a nice feature.
However, what’s even nicer about The Daily Digg is its price: the app is completely free, and is available now in the App Store. If you’re in the market for a simple-but-great Digg app for your iPad, be sure to check out The Daily Digg – and let us know what you think of the app in the comments box below!
