Flipped Out Over Flipboard
I admit to having initial skepticism with this service. One of the more positive aspects I had long grown accustomed to in daily reading of the NYT was the intangible factor of "discovery" I.e. the serendipitous discovery of an article on a topic that may have held little or no prior interest for me but after reading I became better informed and grateful to the editorial staff for choosing to include it in the paper. If I chose to be fed only those topics in which I currently have interest, my knowledge base becomes vertical without any horizontal broadening of my knowledge. That didn't sound good to me.
Flipboard seems to be able to accommodate both an increase in my vertical knowledge about topics of self-stated interest while still inserting that occasional serendipitous find.
I'm giving in
Zite is superior in almost every way.
That being said, the recent updates at least addresses some of my major complains about flipboard: sharing, aggregated home page, muting sources, etc. I also like the integration of RSS, social accounts and other sources in a single app.
HOWEVER, using flipboard still feels like reading War and Peace printed on Muji key ring flashcards. Unless flipboard improves the UI design, this product will remain three stars to me. I can't believe that in 2016 when everybody gets much larger screens on their phones, Flipboard still shows me no more than 2 titles per page. The reading experience is not consistent (sometimes webpage, sometimes flipping pages), and there are simply too many ads (although, I appreciate that the ads are at least well-designed).
Meanwhile, Apple's news app is getting better and better.
I can't live without it!
This app completely changed how I consume the news. Subscribing to other user's magazines could be the best part because they spend an incredible amount of time curating the content. Probably more than my local paper who defaults to AP as filler.
