Prismatic for iOS: A great way to find the news that interests you

Prismatic for iOS: A new way to find the news that interests you

Prismatic for iPhone and iPad gives us a new way to discover and read news that interests us. First and foremost, Prismatic is a community. Find and follow topics that interest you and Prismatic takes care of the rest by feeding in stories that pertain to what it thinks you find interesting. Vote things up or down, leave comments, share stories, and more.

For people that don't particularly like using RSS feeds to get their news, Prismatic is a great alternative since there's literally no upkeep on your part. Just choose the topics and start voting up stories that interest you and Prismatic takes care of the rest. I've been using it for a while now and have found the categories and topics to be spot on with my interests.

Hands down the best part about Prismatic is the community behind it. Being able to engage in real time with other Prismatic users on a current article brings a social aspect to it that other news apps don't have. You can also share stories to Twitter and Facebook in just a few taps.

If you happen to try out Prismatic, let us know what you think. Do you find it more engaging than typically news and RSS apps? Why or why not?

Cool, I'll try it out. Sounds a little like digg, which was great early on.

The setup process is a pain in the butt, and I don't need to create another account. Installed and quickly deleted it.

Another day, another news app. Thanks, but I'll stick with NYTimes and Flipboard.

I will give it a try. Kind of reminds me of Zite without the social component. Zite really pull great articles based on my topics and ratings.

This app used to be great - my everyday go to app for news - but unfortunately it has been ruined in the last update. What once was a clean clear full screen newsfeed is now a cluttered barely readable mess. Around 40% of the screen real estate is now wasted by a large top bar, unnecessary sub headings (before the story title), tiny fonts, comment and sharing buttons under every headline story ( why would I need to comment on a story before accessing it) and a bottom bar with large icons which used to be accessed by swiping to the side. This is an example of how trying to be too smart with design can ruin function. I gave it a couple of days to get used to it but have given up and gone back to flipboard.
