I had already installed Flipboard (thanks to our awesome staff workshop There's an App for That! last fall), but I hadn't used it very much. I spent an afternoon really playing around with it, and I can definitely see that it makes searching for news a little easier. I tried out Zite as well, but I preferred Flipboard. I think this would be a good place to see news about libraries from around the world, and to see more book reviews (like I need to read any more book reviews!!)! I did find it a little tricky to create my own magazine and add content.
I do feel overwhelmed with the amount of information out there at times - I think something like this can make it seem more manageable.
