Flipboard for iPhone: App Review

The very famous and widely used feed reader app for the Apple iPad, Flipboard, has now landed on the iPhone. If you’ve never heard of this app, then you should read our review of the iPad version here. Flipboard for iPhone is a magnificent magazine themed feed reader app that makes reading news articles much more interesting and fun.

It places all the news articles from various websites and feeds in a magazine styled snippet format, with all the news jumbled and most of them featuring an image. It’s really a work of art, and makes you want to read or just glance through all the pages whatsoever. A must have app for a Blogger or a reader.

This is currently only available on the iPhone and the iPad version will be getting it soon. Cover stories is a really nice feature that changes every time you open the app, like live tiles in Windows Phone 7. It’s also smart and automatically shows new and fresh stories on the first page depending on what you like to read.

Social Stories

Like all the other feed reader app out there, this one too can connect to almost all the social networking websites. However, this is very different from the other feed reader apps. The way this app showcases all the stories, status updates, tweets, photos from places like Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader, Tumblr, Instagram etc is really cool. You can like photos, post tweets, comment etc directly from the app too.

Sharing

After you read a story or news article, it can be shared on all your linked social accounts like Facebook, Email, Twitter etc and can also be stored to read later. It’s all integrated to one great app and everything can be viewed with just a flick of your thumb. You can directly retweet an article too, if your Twitter account is linked that is. Commenting on an article is also possible, because sharing your opinion is a good thing. You can also sync all your content from the iPad app and have all the blogs and feeds on the iPhone app.
Flipboard team have taken special care to filter sexual, explicit or any other content nudity in Flipboard feeds. You can also report directly as flag inappropriate.

Overall, its a really good app to download and use on your iPhone, a must have app for bloggers.
