Flipboard, the hugely popular news magazine app for iPad and iOS, has been updated today – to Version 1.9.8.
The big news in this update is that it has been optimized for the iPad mini. In fact the first line in the update details says ‘Works great on iPad mini’.
Here’s a little more detail on what’s been done to make the app ready for the iPad mini, via Inside Flipboard:
Apple starts shipping the much-anticipated iPad mini this week, and Flipboard is ready.
Flipboard’s layouts and typography have been re-factored for the mini to make it easy to enjoy your Flipboard on the new smaller screen.
One of the changes made is that the font size in Flipboard is automatically made slightly bigger for the iPad mini – though this can be adjusted in the app’s settings.
I hope to be trying Flipboard out on a shiny new iPad mini just about 24 hours from now.
