Flipboard

News app competition is getting fierce. A lot of app developers competes to provide a convenience reading experience for the users. One of the best news apps, Flipboard just pulled further ahead of the competition. Flipboard 2.0 allows you to take stories and collect them in magazines format. The app lets you to share news contents with others.

Get started by creating an account on Flipboard, then connect to your Facebook and Twitter accounts by signing in. You also have the option to connect with your LinkedIn, Instagram, Google+, and YouTube accounts if you want to share contents from any of these social networks. Once you are signed in, Flipboard shows an intuitive layout of your social feeds, as well as some default news categories to browse. To customize your Flipboard, touch the bookmark icon in the upper right to browse through several categories like News, Technology, Business, Entertainment, and many others. The 'My Magazines' feature allows you to create magazines based on your favorite content. A new "+" button has been added next to every story you come across so you can select and save content to your personal magazine.

One of the best things about Flipboard is about the social networks. Touching Facebook, for example, brings up all your latest news stories in a magazine-style format and automatically displays images from links your friends posted. Similarly, when you touch Twitter, you'll get each tweet laid out in magazine format, but also with linked stories similarly laid out so you can read some of the article (more than on Twitter) before touching to see the whole story. If you know you're not going to be online later (say, if you're going on a trip via airplane), any of the stories you find can be saved to Instapaper, Pocket, or Readability so you have the articles available offline. Flipboard offers an excellent layout for browsing the latest news feeds and popular social sites that's perfect for both tablets and phones. The personalized magazine features provide more customization and interactivity with social networks and other users.
