RookSoft’s Fahim Farook worked with the development team for Huffington Post from October 2010 to March 2012 to develop a new and improved native iOS Huffington Post iPad app from version 2.0 through to version 3.5. All the hard work has paid off – it ranks in the top 100 apps in 35 countries on the App Store.
Mashable took first crack at reviewing it:

9to5mac talks about the new app here:
The new version is quite slick with access to all of the Huffington Post’s sections and a new “glide” feature. This feature lets you slide through the different posts and it sort of feels like the Twitter for iPad interface.
iClarified says this:
The totally redesigned Huffington Post iPad app gives you up-to-the-minute news and opinion delivered in a lively easy-to-read format. It’s fast, fun, informative… and seriously addictive.
