Flipboard (Free) Flipboard turns your iPhone or iPad into a beautiful digital magazine that delivers stories from a diverse assortment of news channels, from the New York Times to your favorite blogs. The layout resembles a print publication in that you flip the page to read through a story or to reveal other news categories. In addition to news, sports, and politics, you can include your Facebook and Twitter news feeds in your customizable stream. Most articles in Flipboard are automatically stripped of web ads, leaving only the text in a format that's easy to read. You can collect your favorite stories into your own magazine and share articles on your social networks or via email.
