Flipboard has launched its official iPhone app with a gorgeous design and the new “Cover Stories” layout, or “the feed to check when you’re in line at the coffee shop, commuting on the train or just hanging out at home.”
Riding the coattails of a phenomenal iPad app, Flipboard is looking to be the best place for reading the internet on your iPhone.
With Flipboard for iPhone we’re introducing Cover Stories — one place to quickly catch up on some of the most interesting news, updates and photos being shared with you right now. The more you interact with your friends and the stories being shared, the smarter Cover Stories gets. You can refine what appears here by adding content to your Flipboard, muting anyone you’d rather not hear from, and connecting to your social networks. Cover Stories will be coming to your iPad in the near future.
If you’d like to bring everything you have on your Flipboard to your iPhone, create a Flipboard Account on your iPad, download Flipboard to your iPhone, and then sign in. Creating a Flipboard Account also gives you access to All Timelines, a single section containing all the articles and photos being shared across all your social networks.
Finally, Flipboard for iPhone is fast. Scan through pages as quickly as you can with just a flick of a thumb. If you find something interesting, just tap to slide it open.
Flipboard for iPhone is now available for free in the App Store.
