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.

This nifty application is in beta and sure looks promising. The developers announced that Dropbox and Google Drive support are coming soon, probably by their launch this month. According to ZDNet, InstallFree Nexus will come in two versions,
InstallFree Nexus Basic
- The full LibreOffice (formerly OpenOffice) application suite for creating and editing documents from any device or browser
- Full-fidelity viewing of Microsoft Office files
- Seamless integration with Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, SkyDrive, SharePoint, Office 365 and other storage services
InstallFree Nexus Premium
- All the capabilities available in Nexus Basic
- Microsoft Office 2010 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher) subscription license
- $4.99 per month / $49.99 per year for academic licenses
- $19.99 per month / $199.99 per year for standard licenses
The downside is….. well the beta is not available in our region, aka Hong Kong, so we cannot test-drive it….. real bummer. Hope it’s available by launch.
