SkyGrid is a free app for the iPhone and iPad that sorts through and searches for news you are specifically interested in. The latest update (2.0) provides a wide variety and large number of ways to get news to you. SkyGrid provides lists of conventional news sites (CNN, etc.) as well as topical sites (tech, politics, etc.). SkyGrid provides a top 10 trending topics list that lets you follow individual topics from the list. You can also create your own custom search item by typing in keywords and then saving it as a topic to follow. You can share news items via email, Facebook, and Twitter. You can also submit your photos for a SkyReport.
Following Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter didn’t make much sense to me since it appeared to simply let me login to these services’ website.
