A New Way To Surf The Net on Your iPad – The Rockmelt Way

When it comes to reading newsfeed on the iPad, the Flipboard and Zite are my two favorites, but for the past couple weeks, Rockmelt for iPad is gaining my affection because of two unique factors.  First off, one start off with Rockmelt by logging into their Facebook or Twitter account and Rockmelt will learn what you are interested in from what you click or share.  The second key factor is that unlike Flipboard and Zite, Rockmelt has a search bar built in and that can add your personal preferences to the whole learning process as well.

You can get the app from the iTunes Store here. Reviews fro the app so far been great, test drive yours today.
