Digg: Your Complete Social News App?

Back in the days where MySpace was the king of social networks, Digg was the news aggregator sites. But competition from sites such as Reddit began to draw users away from Digg and their disastrous re-launch in 2008, known as Digg v4, would be their undoing.

But since then, Digg has undergone somewhat of a renaissance under the watchful eye of Betaworks and has completely changed and, whilst its core values remain unchanged, this is not the same service we’ve used before. Add to that their brand-new RSS service that was released shortly after Google discontinued their Reader platform and you have the makings of a truly remarkable content aggregator.

As Digg now offers two services, content curation and RSS, we put Digg for iPad through its paces to see if it can truly be a one-stop source for all your news and content consumption.

I’ve made it no secret that I’m a fan of App.net (ADN). I’ve reviewed ADN clients at iPad.AppStorm’s iPhone and Android sister sites, and I think the future of the platform is brighter than any of us might know right now. As it is though, this is a social network still in its infancy and it’s hard to find an app you’ll love using with it.

With that in mind, I thought it’d be worth taking a look at your options on the iPad platform. There’s a huge variety of interfaces available, even within the apps currently available, and you’re likely to find something you’ll fall in love with here.

Earlier this week Web.AppStorm featured a massive roundup of awesome web apps for your iPad, interested? Then read on…

As incredible as it seems, it’s been over a year and a half since the original iPad was released, forever changing what the world thought of tablet computers. The old Tablet PCs were clunky, expensive machines that could run any Windows program, albeit slower and more awkwardly than a full computer. The iPad at first glance looks just like a scaled-up iPhone, but the wide range of apps and number of varied uses it’s found in homes, schools, and businesses has made tablets a permeant part of our computing ecosystem.

One area where the iPad and other tablets have lagged behind is with web apps. While Safari on the iPad is a modern, quite capable browser, many web apps are difficult to use with fingers, and can run very slow on slower processors. Over the past year, though, more and more web apps have been designed or updated to take advantage of the iPad’s features, including multitouch, gestures, and more. Let’s look at some of the best web apps today for the iPad, and if we miss your favorite, be sure to let us know in the comments below!

Head over to Web.AppStorm to check out the roundup!

People love choices. Whether we opt for them or not, it’s always good to have choices. So despite Apple’s ridiculous rule that prevents any browser that doesn’t have a Webkit engine under its hood, iPad users still look for a better alternative to mobile Safari.

I don’t blame Safari. It’s a great browser, but for a long time we have been spoiled with the umpteen plugins and themes that we use in our desktop browsers. After the break, we have compiled a list of ten cool alternatives to the stock iPad browser.
