Rockmelt brings the best of the internet to your iPhone and iPad

Rockmelt, a beautiful news aggregator, was recently updated to bring support to the iPhone and is now a universal app. Rockmelt is designed to bring the news, stories, blogs, and more, that matter most to you. You can connect to Facebook and Twitter to bring in stories from your social networks, search for your favorite websites, and discover new sources by browsing through the many categories generated by Rockmelt.

Rockmelt's interface is very beautiful and displays each story with just its title and a huge image. Tapping on the photo will take you to the story. At the bottom of the page, you'll find a horizontal scrolling list of more stories by that source and other similar stories.

Rockmelt is a great and beautiful way to follow your favorite internet sources on your iPhone and iPad and I recommend that you check it out -- it's free!

Rockmelt brings the best of the internet to your iPhone and iPad

I just tried to install it on my iOS5 iPad2 and it says it requires iOS6. Yet the requirements listed on the app in the iTunes App Store say it is compatible with the iPod Touch 3rd gen which cannot install iOS6...
