To continue our last post, here are a few more tools for PR professionals and business owners. Again, this list is not complete...these are just some of our favorites. :)
NewsRack is a full-featured RSS reader for your iPhone and iPad with an intuitive interface. Skim over the latest headlines on a beautiful rack of newspapers (iPhone only) or use the powerful list view to read and organize feeds. The feeds and articles in NewsRack can be synchronized with Google Reader, including categories and even your custom sort order. Simply install the Instapaper app and download your unread articles when you have Wi-Fi or 3G coverage, then you can read them anytime: on the train, on the bus, in an airplane, at the bank, or in your favorite chair.
Flipboard Pages offers a simple new way for publishers to automatically render select content in a beautiful, engaging layout on the iPad. Flipboard has also announced a handful of publishers whose content has already been enabled via Flipboard Pages including ABC News, All Things Digital, Bon Appetit, Lonely Planet, SB Nation, SF Gate, Uncrate and The Washington Post Magazine. When an article from one of those publishers is shared on Twitter or Facebook, a Flipboard user can simply hit “Read Article” on an excerpt or double-tap while browsing a section to get a delightful magazine-style reading experience.
Pulse is a well-designed news aggregator app commonly compared to Flipboard, the wildly popular iPad app that has not yet made it the iPhone. It lets you add all of your top news sources and displays them in a visually appealing manner.
Zite scans over half a million web domains to find specific reading material that would be of interest, according to your social network and online reading behavior.
–AP Mobile (Blackberry)
AP Mobile makes searching content published by the Associated Press (as well as more than 1,000 outlets of its members) simple. The app also has a local news option customizable by one or more zip codes, and integrates delicious bookmarks, Facebook and e-mail sharing features that let users send articles to clients and co-workers.
SOCIAL MEDIA POSTING AND ENGAGEMENT
