Leak hints Mac version of Flipboard headed to Mac App Store

updated 04:40 pm EST, Tue December 21, 2010

Could represent launch title

A leaked screenshot may represent evidence that Flipboard is coming to the Mac, according to Business Insider. The source of the image claims that the port will be distributed through the Mac App Store, which launches on January 6th. The title may be aimed at MacBook and Magic Trackpad users, as it will allegedly support iPad-like flick gestures for navigation.

Flipboard is a stylized content aggregator, which pulls material from Twitter, Flickr, Facebook and RSS feeds and merges it into a magazine-style layout. Owing in part to heavy marketing and a non-existent pricetag, the app has proven extremely popular amongst iPad users. Earlier this month it was promoted by Apple as one of the best iPad apps of 2010.
