Flipboard for iOS updated, adds Safari Reading List support
Flipboard, a 'social magazine' app, has released an update for its iOS version. Flipboard allows users to read and view content related to their interests in a magazine format. Offering space to save and collect images and articles in the form of magazines, Flipboard includes news, photos, audio and social network content in a paginated layout that requires a 'flip' gesture of the virtual page.
Its latest release, v2.2.3, includes support for adding items to the Safari Reading List, wherein users can add bookmarks as they browse articles in Flipboard. Additionally, users can now copy an article's URL in the device's browser, and then open Flipboard for the option to add it to one's magazines. Bug fixes and performance improvements are also included. Flipboard for iOS is free, and requires iOS 5.0 or later.
