Another possibility is Symbaloo, great for categorising.

All the News that’s Fit to Tap and Swipe: Comparing news apps Flipboard, Pulse, Zite, and Google Currents — The Digital Shift

All the News that’s Fit to Tap and Swipe: Comparing news apps Flipboard, Pulse, Zite, and Google Currents — The Digital Shift | More TechBits | Scoop.it

I've tried Flipboard and Pulse.  Next up to try...  Zite and Google Currents.

 

"Among my favorite tools on the iPad? News apps. Recently, things got even better when some of the most popular news applications—Flipboard, Pulse, and Zite—released iPhone versions, and Google debuted its entry into the field: Google Currents. All attempt to replicate the look and feel of a magazine; swiping through screens to advance content does recall the satisfying turn of an actual page. You can also Tweet, email, or post a story to social sites using these free apps."

How To Create a RSS Feed for a Specific Pinterest Board or User

How To Create a RSS Feed for a Specific Pinterest Board or User | More TechBits | Scoop.it

Robin Good: News and content curators are always hungry for RSS feeds, as these are the best vehicle to receive any change-update from a web site without needing to go out and check. But not always, web public services that let users generate content, are open and happy to let you grab a RSS feed.

 

Case in point Pinterest. 

 

While the service provides a RSS feed for any user that includes all of the updates and posts he has made, these are all uncategorized and mixed together, regardless of which board they were collected in.

 

"To generate this RSS simply click on the user’s profile and select the RSS icon on the left of the page. Another way to do this is to add feed.rss to the end of the user’s profile; for example, if you want to see the latest pins by Felicia Day your RSS URL would look like this http://pinterest.com/feliciaday/feed.rss."

 

To get instead the RSS feed for a specific board, here is what you need to do:

"...first open the board (e.g. Felicia Day’s Geekin Board), then, remove the last “/” from the URL and add .rss – your end URL will look like http://pinterest.com/feliciaday/geekin.rss

The RSS feed will show you the last 20 or so pins created in that board rather than the full contents."

 

Useful. 8/10
