Create an online magazine just for you.  Sound great, well it is.  With Flipboard, you can bring all of your online accounts into one application right on your iPad or iPhone.  It also works on other devices, as well. Flipboard allows me to set up one app and read my Twitter feed, Facebook, Google Reader, and many other accounts.  I get to choose what comes in.  It even brings in the photos that go with the article, so I can decide if I want to read more or just skip over it.  It's awesome.

I can also reply to articles by re-tweeting, sharing, and emailing.  It really does bring all of your social networks together in one easy location.  Check out all of the the things you can add.  It has different subject materials, so you can add topics that Flipboard collects based on that topic.  I add some tech topics as well as sports topics.  It even allows you to add hashtag searches, so you can bring in those Twitter topics you are keeping close tabs on.

The nice thing is that you can control it all.  I really think that anyone that owns an iPad should take advantage of Flipboard.  It is one powerful app.  Download the app here and give it a look.  I think you'll love it.


  1. A couple of years ago, you shared about iGoogle as my homescreen and I have loved it, but I notice it is going away by this fall. Would Flipboard work like iGoogle, having it as a homescreen on my computer? I get the iPad part; just curious about my laptop.
    Thanks again for sharing valuable information!!

    1. Flipboard is only for iPad or iPod. For your computer, you might look at Symbaloo or Aboogy to create that "launch" page. I keep using iGoogle, hoping they change their mind and let it live.

    2. I know, right?!! I am totally addicted to that iGoogle page since you taught me how to do it. Everything right where I want it when I open my laptop...
      Thanks for info.
