Flipboard is widely known as one of the most popular news apps out there, bringing nice animations and an easy-to-use interface to Android. It’s about to get even better with it’s newest update, Flipboard 3.0. The design of the app is meant to look more magazine-esque than ever, bringing new typography, full screen covers, and a new navigation bar at the top. The new design is definitely a step up from the last one, as it was feeling a bit outdated. The animations look better, and flipping the page just feels better.
Flipboard also introduced a new feature called The Daily Edition. It’s a quick way to catch up on your news, as it cycles through current top news in tech, business, sports, culture, and more. It updates every morning by 7am, making it a great way to get your news for the day. Availability for The Daily Edition is somewhat limited, however. It’s currently available in the U.S., U.K., U.S. Latino, Latin America, Brazil, and India.
Along with the huge update, the company has announced that there are now over 30,000 unique topics available to readers! As the topics are fueled mainly by Zite’s technology, “MagMakers” (or magazine creators) are the ones really doing a lot of the work. They’ve created over 10 million unique magazines to choose from, atop of the 30,000 individual topics you can choose from.
This update really helps breathe new life into one of the most popular news apps for Android. You can grab the latest update right now, from Google Play.
