Flipboard App Now Available for iPhone Users

The widely acclaimed app Flipboard, initially a hit on the iPad, has expanded its reach to the iPhone and iPod touch with its latest update to a universal format. This update brings several new features, including:

  • Cover Stories for iPhone, which curates a dynamic mix of articles and photos currently being shared, improving its suggestions the more you interact with it.

    (This feature will soon be available on the iPad as well.)

  • Enhanced speed, allowing users to swiftly flip through pages similar to a physical magazine with a simple thumb gesture.

  • Unified Flipboard Accounts: Log in from any device, be it iPhone or iPad, to access a consolidated feed of articles and photos from all your social networks in one place.

For those already using Flipboard on an iPad, setting it up on an iPhone is a breeze. Your preferences and data are automatically synchronized, offering a seamless transition between devices.

The user interface on the iPhone differs slightly from its iPad counterpart.

It displays only one article at a time and requires vertical swipes to navigate through content, unlike the horizontal swipes on the iPad. Currently, it does not support landscape mode, which is a surprising limitation.

Despite these minor differences, the experience of using Flipboard on the iPhone remains highly enjoyable.
