Flipboard upgrade lets users curate their own magazines
Social magazine platform Flipboard has released a new version of its app which now allows users to curate and share their own magazines of personal interest.
Flipboard 2.0 comes with a '+' button that allows users to add stories, videos and images that they find online to their own personalised magazines.
Mike McCue, CEO of Flipboard, commented: "With more than 50 million users, Flipboard is used every day as a place to catch up on the things you care about. But starting now, it's also a great place to share opinions, save favorite stories, and express your point of view. This is our biggest release ever and one that we think will open an entirely new experience for our readers.”
The app, available across iPad, iPhone and iPod, now also includes side bars within magazines and sub sections of content to help find sources and topics, and had been integrated with Facebook in order to improve sharing.
A recommended reading section offering suggestions will now also appear throughout Flipboard.
