Flipboard

Flipboard

Flipboard is a social-network aggregation, magazine-format application software. It allows users to access all their favorite content, social networks, and settings on Android devices with a single log-in.

The app opens with a 'cover' that cycles through photos, complete with magazine-style headlines. This application collects the content of social media and other websites and presents it in magazine format and allows users to "flip" through their social-networking feeds and feeds from websites that have partnered with Flipboard Inc.
