Flipboard’s Personalized Magazines
I finally played with the new version of Flipboard’s iOS app, which allows users to create their own magazines. In the first 24 hours, over 100,000 were created by users.
Here’s much more info about the new app.
FJP: Sort of a dream come true for me. My media habits are generally to bookmark things to read throughout the week on Pocket (formerly Read Later), which is a prettily designed place to store bookmarks and access them across devices. But at the end of a week I never get through what I’ve saved and thus have a backlog of tons of articles. Flipboard’s magazine works in a similar way—you can create content specific magazines by bookmarking things from all over the web or within your Flipboard readings. So, planning to try this out by creating a weekly magazine of my to-reads. Look out for an in-depth review once I get more playtime on this thing.—Jihii
