“Whether you’re at a conference or at home … you now have storytelling at your fingertips.” Storify co-founder & CEO Xavier Damman’s totally psyched about bringing his popular online story-telling tool to the iPad. While Storify, which pulls content from a variety of social networks, does not contain all the functionality of it’s Internet-based counterpart, the team at Storify is confident that they’ve successfully migrated the core Storify experience to iOS. The team also added an additional function not found on the Storify website: The ability to tweet, inside the app, while creating a story. Have you tried it yet? source

Stuck in a car on a road trip. Finding the interface to Tumblita quite useful. It even supports Markdown, which makes styling content pretty easy. With my laptop’s battery crapping out, this is a useful app to have. Nice work.

lefarce says: Since at least one of you guys have an iPad, what's the best Tumblr app? I'd like an alternative to the browser but it appears that nothing is as good (i.e. Tumbleroo treating posts like the iPad mail client.)

» We say: We admit to not having tried them out yet since they all cost money and all sound not very good. Which is too bad, because the Web interface is hobbled by the iPad’s lack of support for TinyMCE, which is also the same reason that the WordPress app kinda sucks.

New Flipboard adds Instagram and social search.

Forget it, Zite is old news. It used to be cool until Flipboard came out.

We admit it. We’ll probably download this app and really like it. Hopefully we’ll like it and stick with it like Pulse, instead of ignoring it after a week like Flipboard. This app (called Zite) is really cool, because it works like Pandora for your reading preferences. As you keep clicking, it gets smarter, to the point where it knows everything about you. Including your extreme favoritism of funny robbery stories and Charlie Sheen news. Yeah, you. source

Review: The Daily makes an awful solid argument for 99¢ a week
Have to say… we just checked out The Daily. Honestly didn’t expect to be as impressed with it as we were. Visually, it’s stunning … some rough edges, but it makes the Wired app look like last year’s model. The modular masthead on the front page is creative. And the sheer density of the content is just insane. There is enough here to keep you reading for an hour. The editorial sensibility is very New York Post, though with a much softer and more beautiful edge. The Post snarkiness shows up in the briefs and the gossip page more than the main stories. It’s definitely a Murdoch pub. One feature of note: There’s a “By The Numbers" page that kinda reminds us of this site a little. The daily furniture is beautiful. There are share functions so it’s not closed off to the web. But more than anything, you get the overwhelming feeling of disbelief that you get all this stuff for 99 cents a week – and that’s a feeling that’s been missing from a lot of journalism lately. Will be interesting to see how others respond. source

You know Ben Bradlee? He knows the score on the iPad. Bob Woodward goes to him for advice on how to use it. To newspapers: This is how you advertise your iPad app. That’s right. Turn your most grizzled journalists into pitchmen.
