Flipboard, the social-network aggregation software for Android and iOS, that creates a magazine-format application has introduced Version 2.0, which includes more content, faster navigation, and the ability for users to create their own magazines.
Users can grab articles, photos, audio, and videos, and with a few taps of the finger, organize a digital magazine for public or private consumption. Here’s a great video from Flipboard founder Mike McCue.
The new update, which is only for Apple devices at this time, lets users create as many magazines as they want. The “By Our Readers” link in the Content Guide, contains a selection of magazines from staff and friends of Flipboard who’ve been experimenting with 2.0 in our beta program.
The Flipboard app, which now has more than 50 million total users, creates custom magazines for individual user based on their social networks and the publications they follow.
