Reading is part of my day-to-day job and on an average I spend almost 1 hour on my iPad to keep my self updated and to find new news.
With the touch and cool Feed reader on iPad, reading becomes more interesting and with one click share, I can easily share useful links on my Social profiles and also bookmark them. Here I’m sharing a list of those apps, which I use for reading and also sharing my tip on How I use them.
Most of these apps have iPhone variants too or if you are using an Android smartphone, you may find those feed reader apps or similar apps on Android store.

- Must have WordPress tools for Bloggers
My Favorite Feed readers for iPad:
I have tried many feed readers over time that includes Mr. reader and many more, but when it comes to iPad, I prefer to go the visual route.
Moreover, I look for features like quick sharing and bookmarking, otherwise just reading news won’t be of much help. There are endless such apps which you can use on your iPad or iPhone, the only thing is you have to adopt an App. Once you are used to the particular app, stick to it and keep trying some secondary reader, until it catches your attention and makes you read more and more.
So, here goes my list of best iPad Feed reader apps:
I have already shared Flipboard review earlier and after my last review, they have added many new features including Google + stream. If you are very selective about adding/following people on Social networking sites (Which you should), Flipboard will help you to discover great content using your Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
You can add some topic of your interest and you can find news on that topic.
Check out Flipboard.
2. Pulse News for iPad:
Pulse is not top in my list but It’s one of the first iPad feed readers that I started using and loved them. Recently pulse launched Pulse.me a web version of their Feed reader, which added more into their popularity. I usually add only those blog feeds, which I read on a day-to-day basis and use Pulse to read and comment on them. Not the best in the list but since it’s free and offers a great UI, I’m sure many of you will like it. Though I miss a few things like, there are very few sharing and bookmarking buttons in this app, and I hope they do add more options soon.
Download for free from App store.
WordPress For iPad app recently added reader option, but it will take a long time before I can expect features like adding custom RSS and follow blogs apart from WordPress platform. Though, I doubt if WordPress team will ever add custom RSS option in their reader. Along with it, you can also use official Twitter for iPad app as a Feed reader. You can create a Twitter list of must follow tweeps or official Blog/Website twitter profile and use it to read news directly from your app.
