I use the personal magazine app Flipboard on my phone, and iPad (also available for Android devices) to organize and read news, and also to then share interesting things I find while reading. Flipboard has an intuitive interface that makes reading on a tablet or phone much like flipping through the pages of a magazine.
In the past year Flipboard has added the ability for users to create curated magazines that can be shared with others. For example I follow all of the posts from my staff using Flipboard. It makes it easy to read their posts in one place rather than having to visit each of their blogs. A few months back I started to curate their posts into a Flipboard magazine. As I read their articles I add them to my Meriwether Lewis Elementary School Magazine, and then share a link to the magazine via our Twitter and Facebook accounts. The link will open up in web browser, or in the Flipboard app itself if the end user has Flipboard installed on their device.
I have also used the curated magazine approach to create special one time only "magazines." For example all of our classrooms have recently been working with artists from Portland Taiko, a traditional Japanese drumming troupe. I used Flipboard to curate blogs posts from my staff to create a magazine of Taiko related posts.
Flipboard continues to add new features and has recently acquired a similar site called Zite. While Zite is similar to Flipboard, one area where it stands out is in its predictive content feature. Zite learns about your interests based on what you follow and "like" and then serves up content based on those interests. Zite's features will be folded into Flipboard.
