Flipboard, a digital social media magazine developed for iPad, is what I can only describe as one of the most amazing apps to browsing the web for news. It aggregates web links shared by your social circle on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, etc. to then present them in an attractive layout. I could spend hours flicking through pages and pages reading the stuff that interests me the most. It’s all there!
This free app is well designed, functional and very intuitive. It’s no surprise then that it was named Apple’s iPad App of the Year in 2010. Since I found out about Flipboard I had the instant feeling that I had come across something really good, but the test was going to be in the use, of course.
Yes, Flipboard has definitely become one of my very top apps for iPad. Are you thinking of giving Flipboard a go?
Let us know what you think ;-)
