Have you tried Flipboard? I recently added the free app to my smart phone. It has quickly become one of my favorites.
Flipboard is a social network aggregation application for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. It collects content across various partner websites as well as the social media channels we link to the platform and presents it all in magazine format for easy viewing. A user browses the headlines and synopses by flipping through them, literally as though reading a magazine. If he/she wishes to read a story in its entirety a tap on the desired headline brings up the whole post.
Social networks that are linked to Flipboard are broken down into various component streams, such as pictures, news feeds, mentions, links and friend/follower posts. Each can be individually added to form user customized viewer channels. And each permits user interaction via likes, comments, sharing and replies. So a user can monitor and interact with all his/her linked social media platforms as well as keep up to date with the most current news stories in and out of his/her field, all in one place.
Because Flipboard offers a quick, easy way to keep informed about the latest news in our niche areas, it is great for finding current, compelling topics for content creation. Being that kind of quality resource as well as allowing monitoring, sharing and interaction across our social media channels all in one easy to use platform makes this app a must have! If you haven’t tried it yet I highly recommend you take it for a spin. If you have, please share your feedback in the comments section below!
