iPad App: Flipboard

Since I got my iPad in June from the UK, I have been downloading all sorts of Apps. I downloaded this last night and I am instantly bought over!

It’s called Flipboard. http://www.flipboard.com/
It transform the way you read social news. There are many social news you can read, but I use it mainly for twitter. The Facebook connection is overcapacity so I cant load it in yet.

Here are some screen capture:

The “Contents” page of the Flipboard.

When you tap on the “Twitter Box”, it searches for tweets in your account.
It will pull out and expand the tweets!

Flipboard

It is clever enough to randomly expand some tweets. You can see as you ‘flip’ through the pages (like how you flip pages in iBook), it shows older tweets.

This pages shows just the usual tweets probably because there was no URL in their tweets.

If you tap on the tweets, it will ‘pop up’ and expand the tweet.
You can then reply or see who else has replied to a particular tweet.

How cool is that?
You will never read tweets the old way again!

If you want to see more, this YouTube is from Flipboard themselves.
