Tweed is a new app for the iPad that takes an innovative approach to helping you read news and articles – it uses Twitter as a source, instead of relying on site RSS feeds. It’s available now on the App Store for $2.99 (a $2.00 discount for a limited time).
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]More and more, Twitter users depend on the popular social networking service, not just to stay in touch with each other but to remain informed of important trends and world events. Tweed draws on that by using those links as sources.
Tweed uses content published by people you follow on Twitter as well as the links those people recommend and retweet. And if you don’t use Twitter, Tweed gives you access to curated feeds on various news and opinion topics.
Tweed lets you scroll through lists of links, tap or click on articles to add them to your short-list, then load the page as you continue looking for content that interests you. There’s a “Saved for Later” feature, and Tweed maintains a comprehensive history of links that you’ve short-listed, read or saved for later. “Suggested Reads” gives you more content to work with, too.
Tweed was developed by LithiumCorp, makers of Lithium network, server and storage monitor software, Instaviews Instagram photo viewing app and more.
