If someone asks me to pickout the most visually stunning app I use, it would be none other than Flipboard. From the time it was released, Flipboard has been the best of its kind and more importantly, it has maintained the status even after this long.

It is unlikely that you haven’t used or at least heard about Flipboard but if so, let me start from scratch. Flipboard is a social media client which brings all your connections over various networks under a single roof. Supported services are Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram, LinkedIn, tumblr, 500px, Flickr, YouTube and more.

Unlike some other clients or even the official apps, Flipboard considers links and shares to be a major part of social interaction and makes sure, you never miss any. All your social data including photos, links, videos, status updates or jobs are arranged in the iconic folded or News Paper like animation. The screenshots would make much more sense.

In addition to these social media options, you can also subscribe to Flipboards own genres which always has the hottest News you care about. The in built browser to read more and ability to share and bookmark your favourite article are the deal makers, for sure.

Flipboard is not about the content or the interaction. If it were so, we’ve a plethora of other apps and clients, but Flipboard is about the innovative and unprecedented experience of social networking and browsing the web, in the form of a magazine. I can assure that once you use it, you’ll never delete it.

What I Don't Like:None
