    Part of the experience on the iPad when it comes to reading is the overall experience.

    While I use Reeder to quickly scroll through RSS feeds and check my regular sites, it isn't suited for kicking back and casually reading.

    I've found applications like Zite, Flipboard, Currents, and Pulse to be better suited.

    I personally prefer Zite due to the way you can customize it and how it "learns" what you want to read.

    What do you guys use?

    Flipboard... the only way to go, IMHO

    Flipboard for both my iPhone and iPad. Been considering Zite but never made the jump.

    I've always used Pulse, but the layout bothers me sometimes. So right now I'm downloading Flipboard and Zite to see which one I like best.

    I have Flipboard, but find I use Zite exclusively. I had a few more loaded like Pulse, but I deleted them.

    Pulse was a tad too busy for my liking. Zite was too limiting and I didn't like it choosing news sources for me. I know exactly what I like and the rss feeds I subscribe to. Know what I mean?

    I'm using NextIssue on my Android device and Flipboard on my iPad, it's by the far the best magazine app on the iOS platform.

    Funny how people wanting the same thing have different views on what the like. Makes the world interesting. Once post above said they don't like Zite choosing for them. That is why I like Zite, I tell it on a regular basis what I want more of, what I want less of, I pick the categories and there they are like magic, exactly what I want. The only downside is I get a lot of duplicates.

    Flipboard gives me the whole magazine basically with mixed articles. I don't like that. I don't want to read something on every topic, I want to read what I want to read bases on subject. If I want to read about SEO or Web Design or Fonts I have that in Zite, not in Flipboard.

    Regardless I spend more time in Feeddler Pro with my newsfeeds. I find I like that more and have a very organized and large download by folders and categories, plus since I use Google, I can read it anywhere on any computer or device and I don't have to worry about it showing up twice as Google keeps it organized for me. I don't get the newspaper anymore, read the headlines for local online and the rest on my homepage and such.

    But that is exactly how I use Flipboard & Feedly. I enter my Google Reader information that already has my RSS feeds and read them in magazine style. Zite didn't allow for that and it drove me crazy. As for Feeddler Pro, that is still my favorite. It just works!

    When I use one, I like flipboard, but I really, really wish they would add readability.
