Times: an RSS reader for iPad that looks like a newspaper

"If you really liked the idea of Flipboard, a social news aggregator for the iPad, but prefer to define your own sources of news and information instead of leaving it up to your friends on Twitter and Facebook, Times, is an iPad app worth checking out. Times is a feed reader that reformats news stories to look and behave like a newspaper on your iPad screen, complete with categories across the top of the page, popular news stories highlighted with larger images and more prominent placement on the display, and the ability to save and share news stories with your friends. Perhaps most importantly, Times allows you to provide your own news sources and customize what news you get, instead of trusting your social networks to feed the news to you."
