Though you may not care, my first iPad app was a news reader with a very distinctive UI. It was called LCARS Reader (http://lcarsreader.com) and is being taken off the app store tonight. It's a sad day for me.
You can go get it for FREE right now on the App Store.
Also, I have decided to release the source code on github. If you're a programmer, you may be interested. https://github.com/praeclarum/lcars
