Before personalized iPad magazines over took the news sector of the App Store there was Flipboard. The free iPad customized magazine was the first to offer readers their choice of news from their favorite sources, along with social network integration in one eye-pleasing package. Now, all iOS device owners can see what all the hype is about, because Flipboard has just released an iPhone native version.
For iPhone owners there are now “Cover Stories” which are the app’s top picks base on a user’s profile, which gets better as Flipboard learns the reader’s tastes. This feature will be coming to iPad soon. For all, stories can now be “flicked” through for added convenience, and there is, of course, cross-device syncing.
According to MobileBeat, Fllipboard CEO Mike McCue stated:
The iPad is an amazing device that challenged us to rethink how people discover and share social news… With the iPhone we redesigned Flipboard for a new use case, where people want to find the things they care about even faster and multiple times every day. Flipboard for iPhone puts all the power of Flipboard in your pocket
