Times for iPad Review

Times is gorgeous, but there has to be something more under the surface.

Times for Mac, you know, for that computer thing you use, is an exceptionally pretty RSS aggregator that turns sloppy RSS feeds into a nice looking digital newspaper. To my knowledge, Times for Mac is the best looking/performing RSS aggregator out there… all it needed was an iPad app to sync to.

Well now the Times iPad app is out, and it does everything that you’d want it to do, and probably a bit more. It’s certainly not the only RSS aggregator in the App Store, but boy does it look pretty. If you’re familiar with apps like Flipboard, you’ll understand this one right away, as it does away with the traditional google reader type interface and reformats all the headlines into more of a print-focused layout. Add that to the gorgeous large screen on the iPad, and this looks to be a winner.

Like any good RSS reader, the individual news items also come in through an integrated web viewer, so you never have to leave the app to read an article. Times for the iPad allows you to click through to the original website, share on Facebook or Twitter, or just save to a special Shelf for later reading. You can also customize the views, making one page for just straightforward headlines, and another for some of your favorite photo blog layouts. The best part of the app is that it syncs with the desktop version (or will, with an upcoming 2.0 update to the Mac application), creating the ultimate mobile RSS solution.

Pick Times up in the app store for $7.99 and start reading your news in style.
