I use Zite usually 3-4 times per week. I have selected a group of topics related to writing, literature, etc. The magazine learns your preferences by allowing you to “like/dislike” the content it displays. Easy peasy. For articles you want to save, i.e. research, it has multiple methods. You can e-mail to yourself (or someone else), and it has full integration with Pocket (reviewed last week). (Also Evernote, Facebook, Google+, Instapaper, Twitter, and LinkedIn).
Disclaimer (sheesh): I’m not hating on Flipboard, I use it as well (but that’s another week). And I’m not hating Android. And I’m not hating on…well, you get the picture.
It’s just a tool. Use it if you have access to the iPad/Apple appStore. It’s a great addition to your research tools.
