We use tablets daily at our JASE offices in Hampton Roads. Our current tablet of choice is the Apple iPad, and we have really come to love one app in particular. Flipboard is that app and it is our favorite for so many reasons.
The newspaper may be dead or dying, but Flipboard’s ability bring all the news channels of your choosing to your fingertips is fantastic. Once you download the application and install it, you simply select the channels you want to view and Flipboard does the rest in bringing you all the latest information from that channel.
Flipboard takes advantage of a full screen display by bringing several articles in their own viewing panes at once, allowing you to select which article you want to read by tapping on it and blowing it up to a full screen reading pane.
There is something nostalgic about sitting there with your iPad and a cup of coffee flipping through all of the current news and events with the Flipboard app. That’s how it works, just flip and flip through hundreds of articles and videos and view what you want and skip what you don’t.
If you use an RSS reader to view subscriptions to blogs, just login your account in Flipboard and go about reading your blogs just like everything else.
Not only can you view news articles and videos with Flipboard, but you can also view all of your social community conversations as well. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more are available on Flipboard and they act just like channels for news streams. You can flip through your Twitter feed or Facebook news feed and select any item you want to interact with.
Flipboard is a great application to use and the staff here at JASE Digital Media definitely recommends it as a must have application, especially since it is free.
How do you read your news, tweet us @JASEgroup and let us know. Until then, we’ll see you around the digital media world.
