* * * * * Hitpad - a Beautiful, easy to use News Discovery app

*** Apple's "iPad App Of The Week" in more than 70 Countries *** Gizmodo's Best Weekly iPad App ***
Hitpad is the easiest and quickest way to see what's trending and happening today, in the news and your social networks. Five minutes with Hitpad is like spending an hour browsing around.

Here's what others are saying:
"Hitpad is your explainer for all things going on in the world, or well all things going on in the world according to the Internet. It is a really fun and engaging way to keep up with what's going on."
-- Casey Chan, Gizmodo / LifeHacker

"It is a great way to see what’s up in just a quick glance."
-- Sue Megrund, AppAdvice

"A great colorful interface. A really, nice simple app interface that allows you to get content about whatever subject you are interested in all in one space, easy to move around."
-- This Week In iPad

"Get a visual hit of news with Hitpad for the iPad"
-- Mike Butcher, TechCrunch

"An intelligent iPad app for getting the latest news, personalized to your tastes, quickly and with minimal effort."
-- Martin Bryant, TheNextWeb

-- (Japan)

"Una delle migliori applicazioni disponibili è Hitpad , l'App ricerca le ultime notizie disponibili e le presenta sul nostro sistema suddivise per categorie, non solo notizie ma anche foto e video impaginate in colonne per categoria."
-- (Italy)

"Hitpad: Nachrichten auf einen Blick"
-- (Germany)

"Hitpad 2.0: nieuwsapp voor iPad makkelijker aan te passen" (Netherlands)

"A aplicação tem um layout bastante apelativo e intuitivo. Rapidamente se percebe como funciona, aliás, em grande parte, a app só é tão eficaz por causa do seu bom design e do seu layout simples."
-- (Portugal)

"Hitpad listar de mest omtalade ämnena i nyhetsvärlden, bloggar och sociala medier. Du får inte bara de senaste nyheterna utan även relaterade inlägg från bloggar och sociala medier."
-- (Sweden)

"Wenn man Neuigkeiten zu einem Thema sucht, zu dem man noch keine Feeds abonniert hat, oder wenn man nach neuen News-Quellen sucht ist die App eine praktische Hilfe. Außerdem bekommt man einen schnellen Überblick über das aktuelle Nachrichtengeschehen."
-- (Austria)

"En bref une application assez atypique qui rend une fois de plus hommage à l’utilisation de l’iPad en tant que « super magazine connecté », à tester absolument et qui plus est gratuite !"
-- (France)
