It's not every day a new national newspaper launches, but it's even more rare — as in, never happened before — for that paper to never touch actual, you know, paper. The Daily ($1/Week, $40/Year) is a new tablet-based daily newspaper that merges traditional reporting with interactive elements, video, photos, and the Internet to create a new vision for what a newspaper can be. Unfortunately, buying a subscription means giving more money to the evil conglomerate that is News Corp., but then again, so does watching Family Guy, and you're not about to stop doing that anytime soon, either.
RSS made sexy. FLUD (Free) is a deliciously-designed news reader for the iPhone and iPad that reinvents the goodness-gathering power of RSS. Now available in two versions, the FLUD apps sport a highly-graphical interface, slick in-app browser, Google Reader integration, offline reading (iPhone version), and a bunch of social-sharing features to help spread the word on stories, videos, and pictures of interest. FLUD is definitely our new favorite iSoftware, and not just because Uncrate and Devour are both included as sources (well, it didn't hurt).
