Flipboard Gives Users Magazine Creation Tools
The new Flipboard magazines can be shared on social media, including Facebook and Twitter. You can also email your creation. A feature that Flipboard is promoting heavily is support for subscriptions – people can subscribe to your new magazines. It’s hard to tell whether this feature is going to be popular – how likely are you to assemble a magazine with content that you didn’t create for an audience, and how likely is there to be an audience for your magazine? Even so, it’s an interesting idea. The app also now supports shopping on Etsy, thanks to a new partnership with the custom products retailer. Right now, Flipboard’s new treats are mostly available only on iOS devices, but Android support is expected soon.
