planetiPad added to iPad news summary

Awesome! We’re one of the first to be added to’s iPad page!

This is a very good indication of great things to come and we’re proud to be selected! is an ‘aggregator’ service, finding the top news/blog sites for individual categories and you can even customize your own Alltop via their “MyAlltop” service. Picking the news you want to read often.

From their about page:

“The purpose of Alltop is to help you answer the question, “What’s happening?” in “all the topics” that interest you. You may wonder how Alltop is different from a search engine. A search engine is good to answer a question like, “How many people live in China?” However, it has a much harder time answering the question, “What’s happening in China?” That’s the kind of question that we answer.

We do this by collecting the headlines of the latest stories from the best sites and blogs that cover a topic. We group these collections — “aggregations” — into individual web pages. Then we display the five most recent headlines of the information sources as well as their first paragraph. Our topics run from adoption to zoology with photography, food, science, religion, celebrities, fashion, gaming, sports, politics, automobiles, Macintosh, and hundreds of other subjects along the way.

You can think of Alltop as the “online magazine rack” of the web. We’ve subscribed to thousands of sources to provide “aggregation without aggravation.” To be clear, Alltop pages are starting points—they are not destinations per se. Ultimately, our goal is to enhance your online reading by displaying stories from sources that you’re already visiting plus helping you discover sources that you didn’t know existed.”

We’ve even added one of their news widgets in the right hand sidebar for you to see what other iPad news is out.

So, we really want to thank the folks at Alltop for including planetiPad in their site!
