Taptu has released a new version (v1.4) of its visual news reading app that has been optimized for use with Android tablets, including those powered by Honeycomb. Taptu-Android-app

Taptu is a free app that lets you ‘DJ the news’ by mixing stories on topics that you choose.  You can import up to 100 RSS feeds from your Google Reader account or find streams in the Taptu StreamStore, share news with Facebook and Twitter accounts and save articles for later reading to your Instapaper account.

I just installed Taptu on my Moto Xoom last night and have had a few hours toTaptu-Android-app-on-Xoom-tablet       play with it.  I really like the graphic way in which Taptu presents individual articles from RSS feeds as thumbnails, making for a much faster way of scanning through them.  Lately I only have time to scan my RSS feeds once or twice a week — the Taptu layout makes it much easier and faster for me to do this.

On the whole a great app — especially if you have a lot of RSS feeds and want a faster and more visually appealing way to scan through them.
