Flipboard for Android Updated to Version 2.0, Time to Make Your Own Magazine

flipboard android

This morning, Flipboard received a major update to version 2.0 on Google Play. Inside the update is a gang of new features, including the ability to save content into your very own public magazine which others can subscribe to. If you choose, your magazine can also be made private, just in case you aren’t in the sharing mood. 

You can also share magazines via email and social networks, that way your “work” can reach as many people as possible. Beyond the creation of your own shareable magazines, the search feature got a a face lift and is now “front and center” throughout the application.

What’s New:

  • Collect and save content into your own magazines, tap the “+” button to begin
  • Your magazines are public, but can be made private
  • Integrated Android share: add content from the Gallery & other apps to your magazines
  • Bookmarklet to add items to your magazines from a browser
  • Get notifications when people like, comment or subscribe to your magazines
  • Share magazines via email or social networks
  • Personalized recommendations for more to read
  • Search is now front & center, with improved results

Cheers Damian!

  • i currently use google currents, is this any better?

    • trwb

      I like feedly myself

      • As for google currents, i’m the user of both the apps, and i’m starting to think that flipboard is much more interesting to use. While both support websites feed, flipboard offers more sources of magazines than currents. Feedly is very difficult to operate with. Why use the app that is so complicated. And the style of it is somewhat overcrammed

  • Flipboard = Awesome

    I’m going to New Orleans in a few months. Wonder if I can make my own New Orleans magazine with all my info as well as pics, places to go and things I’ve done. Hmm? Will have to give this a look.

    so can you add a websites feed to your magazine or is it just certain articles?

  • mustbepbs

    Basically what I look for in a news app is the ability to see what articles I can read, and the ability to open it immediately up in a web browser, without having to go through menus. I enjoy reading and participating in the comment sections more than I like reading the articles.

    Pulse was really great for this, did everything I want. Now they are shoving social network crap down my throat and were bought out, so who knows where it’s going to go now.

    I’ll give this a try.

      I have found that Flipboard doesn’t even compare to Pulse. I hate the stupid share button that is stuck on the screen as much as anyone, but they are still by far the best.

      I am not sure Flipboard is even for RSS, all the information that comes up seems so random.

        FlipBoard carried more articles in science and technology from popular magazines and websites than Pulse. Pulse couldn’t follow anything I wanted in android news, technology, science, or blogs, even the very popular ones. That’s when i switched to FlipBoard in Beta
