The popular news app, Flipboard, was recently updated to 2.0 and introduces the ability to make your own magazines. The new magazines consist of content that you find and collect on Flipboard or the web (with a bookmarklet). After they are made, the magazines are public and your friends can like and comment on your stories. According to Flipboard:
Tapping the [+] will "flip" the item you’re looking at into your very own Flipboard magazine. Magazines are great for collecting the things you discover and they can be shared publicly or kept private just for you. For example, you can create a beautiful magazine full of all the places you want to explore or all the books you want to read.
For those of you who are familiar with Pinterest, you might find quite a bit of similarities with the social network and Flipboard’s new style. Instead of boards, users have magazines but the concept seems to be quite similar.
Flipboard 2.0 weighs in at 9.7 MB and can be downloaded for free for those of you who are interested in trying it. Those of you who have tried the app, what do you think of the new update? Share your thoughts below!
