I use Flipboard and like its content selection. It's flexible, gives you good depth of content, and is relatively easy to navigate without being boring (looking' at you, Pulse.) But you get over the initial coolness of the flip-transition and you realize that it's almost a gimmick. Not really a gimmick, but not necessarily better than a plain old sliding transition.

Just a note about Yahoo! News Digest. It's beautiful, it's clean, it's up-to-the-second in terms of strong iOS design. But it's also shallow and verges on goofy. Shallow because there is no breadth or depth. You only get a few top stories and you can't drill down to find related stories. Goofy because of the "You've read 1 of 7" reading-achievement display at the bottom of the main view, and the "05h 18m 13s Until Evening Digest" countdown, among other oddball views.

For all the news junkies out there, Al Jazeera America just released a nice app for the iPhone. Even though this is the first version of their mobile app, I think it's as good as any in the App Store.

Used Flipboard then abandoned it. Used Paper then lost interest. Now back using Flipboard which I think is great.
