Get it get it get it
This app is sooo good! One of the best news apps out there. They take articles from different popular websites. Everything is organized, there's celebrity news, world news, video game news, sports news, film/cinema news, technology news, music news, fashion/art etc... You can also link up your twitter, facebook, and tumblr. I'm addicted to this app. There's so much news articles on many subjects, you can spend the whole day just reading, and you genuinely feel a bit smarter, caught up, and even in-the-know before things become in-the-know.
The problem I have are the simple profiles.
This app has the best potential to really become something big. Perhaps better comment sections?
The Trolls! The trolls have already invaded this app. Not only that, they have some political left-wing agenda, especially if you choose to read the comment sections on the World news. So prepare to feel offended and lose faith in your country because people say some awful things.
This seemed really promising but...
This seemed really promising as a place that I could look at all my social feeds and various feeds from news sources that I like altogether. Unfortunately, I just don't get this. I can't modify what appears in the cover stories, which appears to be the main focus of the app. I'm really not interested in FOX news or most of what is in there. I'd love for all the social feeds to be interspersed into one feed, otherwise what's the point of adding another app to look at them separately? The functionality is not intuitive, it's possible the features I want are there but how would I know? The only thing I seem to be able to do is add individual articles or posts to a "magazine" -- what is the point of that? I came here after trying the new Facebook app "Paper" and I heard this was better. Although there is more ability to personalize here, I still can't personalize to the extant I wish and the look is not nearly as pretty.
Surprisingly Fun & Enjoyable to use
Before I began using Flipboard I was heavy into Pulse as it covered all my interest in one app. I had read a lot about Flipboard but thought it was mainly for reading your social feeds. Since getting the app and using it, I realized what an enjoyable interface it had and a broad range of topics. I still use Pulse, where I need to read about Internet marketing and search engine optimization and web design. Pulse lets you customize more closely any topic you want to read about. But I still use Flipboard for all the things that it does offer which are really great.
