Flipboard gets new iPad tweak

Flipboard stood out in the chorus of companies updating to take advantage of the new iPad with an update to its own title (App Store). The 1.8.2 change updates the rendering of images and text to scale properly to the 2048x1536 display. Its effect is "closer to a true print magazine," Flipboard said.

The app otherwise carries over features from 1.8, such as Cover Stories for iPad owners, an extra page of custom feed tiles, and stories that show their comments, likes, and (when relevant) retweets. Content guides are international and cater to Australia, Canada, France, Ireland, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

Despite the scaling for the new tablet, Flipboard can run on any iOS device using 4.0 or later.

The app is so far the first of its kind to be optimized for a greater-than-HD tablet and doesn't have a high-resolution Android tablet equivalent.

    More marketing hype. Total bs.
