Flipboard for iPhone launched today

On December 7, 2011

Flipboard is one of the iPad applications that are heavily downloaded by its users. It is a unique way to keep track of all the social networking that a user may have as everything is compiled in an interface which looks similar to a magazine. This device was launched for iPad on June 2010 but it also faced high demand from its iPad users to make the application available on Apple’s other device, the iPhone.

After almost a year and a half, Flipboard has now paved way for iPhone users to also use its application. It currently has a base of 4.2 million users with an average of each user using the application twice a day. However, this frequency may change once it is made available on the iPhone as users will be able to access it more frequently on a smaller device.

Some of the social networking website that the application covers includes Twitter, Instagram as well as Facebook, all of it covered in a magazine-like layout. Users can click on a new feature called Cover Stories on which all the newest updates are shown here.

Flipboard for both iPad and iPhone is available free of charge in the Apple App Store.
