Flipboard is one of the most popular apps, regardless of what platform you’re on. Browsing through the personalized magazine on your smartphone or tablet is always a joy, but users have also been wishing they could have it on other gadgets as well. Well, the developers have finally given in, and Flipboard is now available on the web through your laptop, netbooks, or desktop computers.
If you’ve been living under a digital rock and don’t know what Flipboard is, it’s an app that you can use to view news and links that you’re really interested in. It’s like an RSS feed but better designed and is in a digital magazine format that’s not just intuitive but pretty as well. Their vision is to “bring a print-like aesthetic to digital content”, and now that they’ve launched their web version, the cycle is complete, so to speak.
Flipboard.com has a responsive layout, so whether it’s a small netbook or a large computer monitor, it will still retain the same unique attributes that has made it a favorite among mobile users. It has a scrolling interface and your mouse or scroll button can trigger interactions as well. Since browsing the web on your desktop is a different experience from when you’re using smaller, mobile devices, they’ve created optimal layouts that will fit into this new scenario.
The personalizations that you’ll make on your Flipboard on the web will also reflect on your mobile apps, and vice versa, as long as you log into just one account. You can now enjoy flipping or scrolling through your personalized magazines, wherever you may be.
