The Flipboard iPad app has had a major update today, to Version 2.0. There are a host of new features in this update, but the one that is rightly grabbing headlines is the ability to create your own magazines within the app.
Creating Flipboard magazines is easy and fun, and I’m sure this is going to be an immensely popular feature.
Here’s the full change list for this 2.0 update:
★ You can now collect and save content into your own magazines, tap the new “+” button to get started.
★ Your magazines are public, but can be made private (viewable only to you).
★ Use the new bookmarklet to add items to your magazines from your browser.
★ Get Flipboard notifications when people like, comment or subscribe to your magazines.
★ Easily email or share magazines to Facebook, Twitter, G+, etc
★ Personalized recommendations for more to add to your Flipboard.
✓ Search is now front and center on your Flipboard, with new improved results.
✓ Faster page-loading and faster flipping performance.
Flipboard remains a flagship iPad app, and it just keeps improving through regular updates like this one and with significant new features like today’s additions.
I’ve create a couple of Flipboard magazines already and I’ll share those soon in a separate post.
I know we have lots of Flipboard users here. What do you all think of this latest update and the new roll your own magazine feature?
