Flipboard - iPhone App Review

Posted by Ahsan Tasneem | 2:12 AM | , , | 0 comments »

Flipboard, the first and most successful social/personal digital magazine for the iPad, is now available for the iPhone. But is it any good?The short answer is yes. It’s good, but it’s not a carbon copy of the iPad app, it’s a re-imagining of the iPad app for the smaller iPhone screen.
Flipboard works by pulling in articles from your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, Google Reader feeds and then reformats them into a magazine. The idea is to create a magazine tailored to your personal interests, based on what you share and read across social media sites. It’s clever and intuitive.

The iPhone app has been rebuilt for the smaller screen. You can flip through pages vertically with your thumb rather than the traditional horizontal swipe for the iPad app. This means you can use just your thumb to navigate your way around.The new feature is Cover Stories. “With Flipboard for iPhone we’re introducing Cover Stories,” says the firm, “a place to quickly catch up on some of the most interesting news, updates and photos being shared with you right now. The more you interact with your friends and the stories being shared, the smarter Cover Stories gets.
“You can refine what appears here by adding content to your Flipboard, muting anyone you’d rather not hear from, and connecting to your social networks. Cover Stories will be coming to your iPad in the near future.”

Verdict? This app is good. What’s more, it’s free on the app store.
