    Re: Best iPad News Applications

    I hope that RSS feed for the same will also be helpful. There is mostly the news app told here. I had some list of best RSS application that one can use for Apple iPad. The first one is The Feed, then comes Feeddler RSS Reader, MobileRSS HD, etc. There are other more tools that are best for the same purpose and you can simply subscribe and get info on the latest news.
