Ok, obviously, I’m getting more interested in content curation. Since I’m using my iPad more and more, it’s natural to ask, how does one accomplish content curation? While there are many tools available, here’s the current crop of tools to curate and read content. And, yes, I’ve added them to my must-have iPad apps list already.

    1. Curating:
      1. EverNote (no cost) – This is the best app on the iPad, IMHO, with its note-taking capabilities that include still images, audio and more. I simply love this app. If I find out that upgrading will result in saving EverNote content to my iPad for offline viewing, then I will happily pay for it.
      2. Pinterest (no cost) – “Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. It lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find in your life.”
      3. LiveBinders (no cost) – If you’ve played with Livebinders, you’ll know how it works. This app allows you to view and edit existing LiveBinders. If not, check some Livebinders out!
      4. Pearltrees (no cost) – A nice visual interface that allows you to create trees of content you like, share it, and allow others to contribute/curate with you.
    2. Reading Other’s Curation (all no cost)
      1. Zite – A phenomenal app enabling you to read content from everywhere. I love that you can drop content into section topics, exposing you to content you didn’t know existed about stuff you are interested in!
      2. Flipboard – This incredible app turns RSS feeds into beautiful magazines you can flip through easily. Some other possibilities: Flud
      3. Taptu – More magazine goodness on your iPad, but not based on social media. Some other possibilities in this category include Zinio.
      4. News360 – Access news on your iPad. Other competitors include News.MePulse.
      5. Showyou Video Curation – Shows you video content. Hmm.
