Review: Flipboard for iPad

Flipboard enables you to view, in a magazine-style format, your Twitter and Facebook feeds. Here is why this is different, worth paying attention to:
  • You can put Twitter lists, search terms, or individuals into their own sections and view these streams. While Tweetdeck, and others, achieve the same results via columns the Flipboard experience is better.
  • As you dive into the sections you have defined you see a mix of individual tweets and, the real win, you see the articles that people were tweeting. You no longer need to click upon random URLs to decide if you want to view the content. Instead, the graphics and text of the original article are right there in front of you. Not happy with seeing the page rendered in Flipboard, just click “Read on Web” and you are off into the browser to view it directly on the original site.
  • You can see who else has retweeted the article and choose to follow, if desired, as well as reply, RT, or share the article via e-mail.


On the main screen of Flipboard, you have 9 different feeds with one Facebook account and one personal Twitter account. However, you can delete any of the account feeds and replace with your own favorites.
