News.me, a social news iPad app from the New York Times, is on the way and has been revealed to Techcrunch in a series of screen shots. It looks like it’ll be a direct rival for The Daily iPad newspaper coming from News Corp and pretty ace in its own right. It also reminds us of Flipboard.
News.me links your Twitter account to the app and gives you the ability to view your friends’ individual news streams or combine them into a custom newspaper. You can share articles from the app via Facebook, Twitter or email and save stories to Instapaper. The app probably won’t be free but it will access the premium content from the New York Times. No news yet on when the News.me will break cover but we’ll grab it when it does.
