Flipboard brings news, magazines and social news to you. It has very compact user interface and easy usage. After being successful in iPad and iPhone, Android versions are released for tablets and phones.
It collects the news and contents from web and social media. Then, it presents them to you in a nice magazine format. You can choose one topic (news, technology, business etc.) then the contents come to you, after, you can swipe up or swipe down in order to turn over the pages. This feature makes you feel like reading real magazine. Articles of the topics are seen in a summary format which consists of one thumbnail and a short paragraph. If you want to read all, just tap it and new window will be opened. You are limited to view one article at once.
Flipboard has a good search feature that you can search for people, topics, articles, sites, blogs or even hashtags. In the audio section, you can listen so many radio stations while flipping. You can add topics that you liked to the main page just by tapping “+” icon. Also you can choose reading articles offline by read it later option. But this option requires an account. It is integrated with lots of social media networks, so you can share, comment or like contents.
There are also widgets in small and medium size by which you can access the app quickly. You can set the widget updates hourly or daily.
