For Your iPad
  1. EverNote(no cost) - This is the best app on the iPad, IMHO, with its note-taking capabilities that include still images, audio and more. I simply love this app. If I find out that upgrading will result in saving EverNote content to my iPad for offline viewing, then I will happily pay for it.
    1. Sharing Evernote Notebooks to Twitter, Facebook, and Edmodo - Now that you are curating content, wouldn't it be neat to share that with others?

  1. Pinterest (no cost) - "Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. It lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find in your life."
  2. LiveBinders (no cost) - If you've played with Livebinders, you'll know how it works. This app allows you to view and edit existing LiveBinders. If not, check some Livebinders out!
  3. Pearltrees (no cost) - A nice visual interface that allows you to create trees of content you like, share it, and allow others to contribute/curate with you.

Content Consumption

    1. Reading Other's Curation (all no cost)
      1. Zite - A phenomenal app enabling you to read content from everywhere. I love that you can drop content into section topics, exposing you to content you didn't know existed about stuff you are interested in!
      2. Flipboard - This incredible app turns RSS feeds into beautiful magazines you can flip through easily.
