On most days, magazine lovers barely just put up with the mobile web versions of their favorite magazines. That’s because they’re usually not elegant and look rather clumsy. You don’t have to worry about that any more with Flipboard on your iPhone or iPad.
The visual brilliance of this app will please your eyes. The first thing you need to do is to create an account on Flipboard. You can integrate your Flipboard account with major social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter for it to showcase the updates from contacts as news too. It collects news from various feeds which a user selects. You can choose the feed that you want and it shows you a mini magazine aggregating stories from all the feeds that you’ve selected.
An animation which gives you a feeling that you’re flipping the pages of a magazine is a prime example of the beautiful design that has gone into this app. And not just that, the app can be used with just one palm; you don’t even have to use the other hand while you’re holding your phone. Such is the care that has been taken while designing it. With just one flip action of your thumb, you’re taken to the next page of the magazine – as simple as that. The flip animation is smooth and fast. If you like a story and would like to read it later, this app allows you to send that particular page to Instapaper or Read It Later so that you can read them even in offline mode.
A completely free app that will make you fall in love with reading all over again.
