Betaworks and The New York Times R&D Lab have released News.me, a new news aggregator for the iPad.
News.me is a different kind of social news experience that shows you not just what your friends are sharing, but what they are reading as well. Have some friends with impeccable taste in music? Find out about new artists from the same places they do. Curious what Steven Johnson or Nicholas Kristof has been reading lately? Browse through their streams and find out. Everyone curates their Twitter experience to reflect their own unique set of interests, and with News.me you can see their curated view of the world. News.me offers a seamless interface for immersive reading, and uses science to find the most relevant content in every user’s stream.
