Turn your news & social network into a beautiful, up to date iPad magazine!

View on the App Store: Flipboard: Your Social News Magazine - Flipboard Inc.

Features of Flipboard: Your Social News Magazine:

  • One app for all your reading.
  • Beautiful view of your Facebook or twitter feeds.
  • Add what interests you.
  • Search for any feed or stream online.
  • Beautiful, easy interface.

This is an elegantly laid out app perfect for on the iPad. Collating your news feeds and social networking feeds from around the internet into one easy-to-use 'flippable' interface. Not only does it display these feeds in a beautiful way, but it also blends them together which gives an interesting twist to your reading. 

Like reading a magazine except all your family, friends and people of interest are the famous stars!  

A relaxing way of connecting and reading the content of your Social Networks. 

We downloaded this many moons ago when it was the App of the week, and it has remained on iPad ever since. As a parent of young children, I find I do not have as much time as might be required to enjoy this App fully. :)

A great iPad App for the Social Network!

As the App Developers state, it really is "Beautifully designed for iPad and iPhone, Flipboard creates a personalized magazine out of everything being shared with you. Flip through your Facebook newsfeed and Google+ Circles, tweets from your Twitter timeline, photos from Instagram friends, videos from YouTube, and much more. Fill Flipboard with the things you like to read, from niche blogs to publications like The New York Times and Rolling Stone, and use Instapaper or Readability to save articles to read later.
