Behind a a couple of red doors and a biometric fingerprint scanner lies a rather unique member’s only destination tucked away in the heart of San Francisco’s bustling Financial District. The private refuge is a complement to its retail brother, OnTheFly, where discerning customers have been procuring their gentlemenly needs both online and now at their brick and mortar location located conveniently down the street.
What awaits members inside Wingtip is a bevy of libations, videogames, TVs, and a few workstations, just in case you need to send a memo thatyour meeting is running a bit longer than expected. Though in reality you want to catch the first few innings of the game or you’re just having too much fun destroying your underling in a game of Wii Bowling. You can also kick back and catch up on a couple of chapters from any of the many books available or even borrow a Kindle or iPad to get on top of the latest, digitally.
Whatever the case, whether work or play, you can get it done at Wingtip. Applications are being accepted as we speak and if you were wondering if its just a Men’s club, we think they put it best: “WINGTIP does not discriminate based on age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. We do, however, reserve the right to discriminate against *@$*%$#.”

Indeed, users are spoiled for choice when it comes to finding a decent news reading app for the iPad. Steve gave Pulse News Reader a bit of special attention at this year’s WWDC keynote – an RSS reader app that exists along scores of others, including Reeder for iPad; a sleek, feature-packed Google Reader app that is my own personal favorite.
In addition to these, some might prefer actual newspaper apps – and by this I mean iPad apps like NYT Editors’ Choice or The Times of London: applications that offer newspaper content in a newspaper form.
However, if you’re looking for an app that bridges these two realms, look no further: The Daily Digg – an app recently discovered by MacStories - does this by presenting a variety of Digg categories in a newspaper-style setting.
Tapping on an article opens it up for you to read, and running along the bottom of the screen is a bar highlighting the different sections of Digg. Touching a section brings up the relevant articles in a flash.
Additionally, the application makes use of the iPad’s 9.7″ screen perfectly, not letting an ounce of space go to waste – which is a nice feature.
However, what’s even nicer about The Daily Digg is its price: the app is completely free, and is available now in the App Store. If you’re in the market for a simple-but-great Digg app for your iPad, be sure to check out The Daily Digg – and let us know what you think of the app in the comments box below!
