Flipboard has today been upgraded to version 2.0, bringing more content than before through brand new partnerships with various sites, alongside which the developers say that search results will appear faster, with more visuals that are easier to navigate.
The app will also allow you to save articles, photos, audio and videos and organise them into one magazine, which can be kept private or made public and shared, to do so you simply tap the new “+” button, pick a name, description and then add your content.
You can also add new content to your flipboard via their new bookmarklet, which will add new sites to your Flipboard at a click. Other features include:
A new, visual Content Guide. Tap the Red Ribbon and you’ll see your own table of contents, all the magazines you’ve created, Notifications and lots of other goodies for you to peruse.
- Commenting on Flipboard. Inside a story, tap the source’s avatar in the lower left-hand corner, to reveal Flipboard Comments. Draw in other Flipboard users with @mentions.
- Recommended Reading. In Cover Stories, you’ll find More to Read, a personalized list of things we think you’ll love, drawn from your social interactions.
- Subsections in partner magazines, newspapers and websites. On the second page of tablet editions, you’ll find new sidebars listing subsections for easier navigation.
- Fast section switching. Tap the section name at the top of any page to reveal related content and subsections
Optional Facebook Open Graph integration, bringing your Flipboard activity to your Facebook page in more meaningful ways.
You can download the app from the iTunes App Store today.
