Flipboard is a new iPad app that aims to make your customized social media news even more engaging for you. Flipboard integrates all of your social media channels, updates them in real-time and organizes them all in a very attractive and ultra-personalized digital magazine.
Flip through the magazine on your iPad and check out your friend’s latest stories, photos and update messages from those you follow. These sections can be customized by social media provider, friend lists, topics and more. Plus, it’s free.
Now, this is a really cool idea. But I wonder if it will work better for people who only check their social media sites once a day or less. After all, it’s a gorgeous “recap” of the day’s events, but doesn’t help you stay in the conversation mid-stream too well.
