A year ago yesterday Flipboard 2.0 was released. The 2.0 version of the hugely popular iPad news magazine added the ability for users to create their own Flipboard magazines. Along with many others, I was excited to see that update and thought it was a great, fun new feature of the app.
Looks like it’s been pretty well received, as Flipboard has shared some numbers to mark the one year anniversary:
As of March 27, Flipboard’s community of MagMakers has created more than seven million magazines. (If you’re keeping score at home, that’s 19,178 magazines per day, or 13 magazines per minute.)
iPad Insight has made its little contribution to those numbers. We currently have 3 Flipboard magazines – iPad Apps, iPad Art, and iPad Accessories. You can find them via the search in Flipboard or within iPad Insight on Flipboard.
