NetNewsWire for iPad features complete redesign

In the wake of the iPad launch Saturday new apps are arriving quickly -- today the iPad gets an RSS feed reader, NetNewsWire for iPad, a document reader, GoodReader and a research-paper reader, Papers for iPad. NewsGator launched its NetNewsWire App for iPad with a re-engineered design, taking advantage of the iPad's larger screen and faster processor. The utility enables users to capture blog posts, podcasts and other web content.A new split-screen view shows subscriptions on one side, and articles and web pages on the opposite side. It is now available on the App Store for $10.

Good.iWare's new iPad version of its GoodReader application handles very large PDF and TXT files. The app navigates documents such as manuals, books, magazines, and renderings, while specializing in reading 100MB+ documents at much faster rates than other document viewers. It features active hyperlinks, autoscrolling for easy document browsing, and PDF reflow. It is now available from the App Store for $1.

Mekentosj BV's release of Papers for iPad features research capabilities, allowing users to carry their research literature database on the new tablet. It can be used for searching authors and journals, while rating capabilities provide a way to flag important research. The app offers free online back-up, a PDF viewer, and annotation capabilities. Users can also sync with the desktop software Papers for Mac, available separately. Papers for iPad sells on the iTunes App Store for $15.
