The first native Digg client for iPad!


This version of Shovel for iPad is a very early release. Like all other new iPad applications, we haven't had access to actual iPads to test on yet, nor have we been able to implement 100% of the features we'd like to see in the future. Please read below for a list of features that are on the immediate horizon, and we greatly appreciate your patience with our app.

Future Features --

Social Media Integration including Instapaper, Read It Now and Facebook publishing.

Full access to searching stories.
Direct access to user data, including submitted stories, comments, and dugg stories.

And much much more!

If you have any suggestions, please let us know in the comments!

With that said... Give it a whirl! Congratulations on the new iPad!


Shovel for iPad is the premier Digg client application for the iPad!

Through Shovel you gain access to the world of socially aggregated online news. While the site specializes in Tech news, there are more specialized categories where you can find news of interest to car enthusiasts, outdoorsmen, and more than anyone's fair share of funny videos.

All of the stories and submissions are voted on by the community and the best rise to the top!

So when you load up Shovel you are treated to a listing of the top rates, most up to date news, in topics that you're interested in.

Building on the successes of Shovel for iPhone, we recreated our API interface, taking advantage of the new features available to developers through Digg's API.


Shovel for iPad makes use of the DiggTM API.
