Flipboard, the superb iPad news magazine, turned two this summer. The app’s publishers have announced this birthday and shared some of the major accomplishments they’ve worked on over the last year:
This summer, we celebrated our second birthday. Just the last year alone makes our bones hurt: we launched iPhone and smartphone editions; debuted features like Cover Stories, audio and shopping; added seven new social networks; forged partnerships with publishers like The New York Times, and localized into eight languages.
They also shared some crazy numbers for Flipboard at 2 years old. As you can see in the infographic above, these impressive numbers include:
- 20 million Fliboard users
- 3 billion flips (roughly equivalent to a page view) per month
- 1 new user ‘born’ every second
- 1.5 million daily users
Flipboard has been a fixture on my iPad home screen ever since I first tried it, and was one of our picks for Best iPad Apps of 2011. I’m very proud that iPad Insight is featured in their Science & Tech section. Here’s hoping for many happy returns for the app
