Flipboard for iPad adds Instagram support

updated 11:55 pm EST, Wed March 9, 2011

App update arrives just ahead of iPad 2 launch

Flipboard has released an update to its popular iPad app, adding Instagram support just days ahead of the iPad 2 launch. Users can now access Instagram images alongside content from other social networking sites, while the search function has been revamped to automatically search across the entire range of supported services and blogs.

Version 1.2 also brings speed improvements, with content loading claimed to work twice as fast as the previous release. Other tweaks include Flipboard's own 'featured sections,' along with minor changes to Google Reader integration.

Flipboard 1.2 is now available as a free download on the App Store.

    a backstep

    So a great iPad app now supports streams from an app where crappy images are run through generic filters in hopes of someone, somewhere deeming the results as "art?" Kudos for the handshakes with social media Instagram provides, and we all know image quality is limited by Apple's SDK, but I'm not a fan of the app in it's current incarnation.

    Great news!

    Not sure I agree that people think the stuff they do on Instagram is "art". It's a great way to quickly share an interpretation of the moment. Well, actually, I guess that would be a definition of art. I for one am excited to use flipboard as a way to scan through hundreds of snapshots! Can't wait!
