What is Flipboard?

Developed by some of the biggest names in the tech industry, Flipboard is part social app and part magazine and news app. It gathers content from social networks, news publications and blogs. Then the app displays stories, articles, blog posts, videos and other pieces of content in a magazine-like format. The Flipboard app is available on multiple operating systems and devices, including smartphones and tablets. Or access Flipboard in a web browser from your computer. Users have the ability to create their own magazines as well as subscribe to the magazines of other users or brands.

How to use Flipboard

When you first download the app and open it to get started, you’ll be able to subscribe to various topics, including News, Technology, Flipboard Picks, Design, Travel and more. You can also conduct searches for your favorite brands or bloggers to see if they have magazines on Flipboard.

Once your feed has been populated with the content you want to see, it’s time to start engaging. Like or comment on the content in your feed, or “flip it” to be republished to one of your own magazines. You can create multiple magazines and control the privacy settings for each.

If you want to see tutorials, Flipboard has them on their website, with videos included.
