Between the Covers: Stories from My Bookcase

Monday, March 28, 2011


Last week, when I decided to give my iPad another chance at seeping into my daily routine, I actually pored over two apps and spent a good two hours going through my social network feeds. I’ll talk about one of those apps today.


Flipboard is your own magazine. The content is exactly what you would want to read about because you control the feeds you get through it. Add your Facebook account, your Twitter, and feeds from websites you like frequenting. Indeed, it’s your personalized social magazine.

What I love about it is that it allows me to view photos, videos, and links shared by my friends without having to leave the application. That’s wonderful! I can delve into what they’ve shared without having to leave the timeline – I can go back and go through the rest of the shares without a problem.

You have to experience Flipboard to understand why it’s one of my favorite apps. If you have an iPad – get it and download this app, you will not regret it. In fact, you might even jump for joy! Yup, jump as if you were taking off one of these trampolines New York! Smile
