Flipboard 1.9 brings Audio category, SoundCloud support

updated 12:02 pm EDT, Wed May 16, 2012

Offline reading gains Readability

The latest version of Flipboard, 1.9, now includes an Audio category, its developer has announced. The content is available through the Content Guide, and includes clips from NPR and PRI shows, as well as recommendations from SoundCloud. This includes access to lists and followed users, as well as highlighted content. Once audio is playing a person can continue reading other sections of Flipboard without it being interrupted; a menu option lets users control playback.

The update also includes VoiceOver support for the visually impaired, a Japanese localization, and the option of sending articles to Readability for later reading; previously, only Pocket and Instapaper were supported. On the iPhone, new related sections for social networks let a person tap on Twitter, for instance, and see sections like mentions and favorite tweets.

Flipboard is a free download for all iOS devices supporting iOS 4.2 or later.
