Flipboard, a highly popular social magazine app for the iPad, has finally made it ways onto the iPhone.
Named Apple’s iPad App of the year and one of TIME’s Top 50 Innovations, Flipboard creates a personalized magazine out of everything being shared with you, from Instagram photos and Facebook updates to Tumblr posts and articles from your favorite publications. Fill Flipboard with the things you like to read, from the smallest blogs to publications like Rolling Stone or Vanity Fair, and use Instapaper or Read It Later to save articles to read later. Connect Flipboard to all your social networks, and you’ll have a single place to enjoy, browse, comment on and share all the news, photos and updates that matter to you.
The eagerly awaited iPhone app also includes a brand new feature only exclusive to the iPhone and iPod Touch – Cover Stories. With Cover Stories, you can quickly browse the most interesting articles and photos being shared with you right now. It’ll apparently get “smarter” every time you use and interact with it. Like the iPad version, Flipboard is completely free to download. Flipboard’s new iPhone ad and more can be found below.
Update: If you’re having troubles building your first Flipboard and receiving the “Couldn’t build your Flipboard. Please check your internet connection and try again.”, you’re not alone. A number of people are also having difficulties getting started. It’s possible that the Flipboard servers are hammered at the moment with the influx of new iPhone users. Hopefully this is won’t last too long and that you’ll be able to actually use the app shortly.
