For those of you distraught about the upcoming end of Google Reader, you may be looking for a new way to get news. Flipboard is a popular option for multiple platforms, and the company just announced its brand new update to its product, dubbed the “next generation of Flipboard.”
One of the most unique updates to Flipboard includes the ability to create personal magazines (as seen in the image above). Users can now save articles, pictures, and video and create a personalized magazine with content chosen by the user.
Here’s the list of other additions and features included in Flipboard 2.0:
- A new, visual Content Guide. Tap the Red Ribbon and you’ll see your own table of contents, all the magazines you’ve created, Notifications and lots of other goodies for you to peruse.
- Commenting on Flipboard. Inside a story, tap the source’s avatar in the lower left-hand corner, to reveal Flipboard Comments. Draw in other Flipboard users with @mentions.
- Recommended Reading. In Cover Stories, you’ll find More to Read, a personalized list of things we think you’ll love, drawn from your social interactions.
- Subsections in partner magazines, newspapers and websites. On the second page of tablet editions, you’ll find new sidebars listing subsections for easier navigation.
- Fast section switching. Tap the section name at the top of any page to reveal related content and subsections.
- Optional Facebook Open Graph integration, bringing your Flipboard activity to your Facebook page in more meaningful ways.
