Earlier this year, Flipboard made serious waves by launching Flipboard 2.0 with a unique new personalized magazine feature, allowing anyone to create and curate their own digital magazine filled with various articles and share it with others. Now Flipboard is at it again – and this time, they’re bringing their popular custom magazines to web browsers, allowing anyone to view their content, regardless of what device they’re using at any given moment.
From the official Flipboard blog:
Since the launch of Flipboard 2.0, more than 2 million magazines have been made about every topic imaginable, from immigration reform to neon works of art to Sherlock Holmes. Now, for the first time, all of those magazines can be experienced on the Web. Starting today, when you share a Flipboard magazine via email or social media, anyone who clicks on the link can read it, whether or not they use Flipboard.
There’s not a whole lot more I can add, other than to strongly suggest that you check it out for yourself. The Flipboard web interface isn’t quite as sophisticated at their mobile app – but it does provide a great reading and sharing experience, complete with social sharing (although users won’t be able to create or personalize magazines unless they use the app).
It’s a great way to bring Flipboard’s growing collection of user-curated magazines to more readers, and should serve them well. Including more users in the Flipboard party could never be a bad thing, after all! Click here to check it out for yourself!
