I am a news junkie - and I have tried numerous apps on my iPad and iPhone. Apart from Flipboard, none of these have really stuck for continued usage. I discovered Yahoo! News Digest late last month - and it has become my defacto news app. The concept really works - a set of curated news summaries (multiple editions available), twice a day. The interface is sleek, and for the most part, the additional links (twitter feeds, maps, Wikipedia entries, etc) are a nice touch. For detailed news - Flipboard is still the leader - but this app is best for catching up on the key topics.
