Feed Your Mind…

Sometimes, you need to take your mind off of work for awhile and catch up with what’s going on in the world. I recommend these apps:

  • BBC News
  • Slate Magazine
  • NY Times
  • USA Today
  • Pulse News
  • The Wall Street Journal
  • NPR for iPad
  • The Onion

Of course, there are countless other apps you could use. But these should be a good place for you to start.

I hope you find this helpful.
