iPhone App News: Flipboard makes small screen debut

App of the Year Flipboard has graduated from iPad to iPhone in this reimagined version for the small screen. The new app brings vertical page turning and a new feature called Cover Stories

Flipboard, the socially-themed, personalised digital magazine app for iPad, has finally graduated to the iPhone with a reimagined version of the app.

The massively-successful Flipboard app, which won the prestigeous App of the Year Award at the 2011 T3 Gadget Awards, pulls in articles from your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr and, among others, Google Reader feeds and reformats them into an attractive magazine.

The app has now been rebuilt for the small screen with users now able to flip through pages vertically with the thumb rather than the traditional horizontal swiped used on the iPad version. The makers reckons this makes it easier to use the app with just one hand.

The main never feature appearing on the iPhone app is Cover Stories, which learns about which content you're reading most and places those topics and sources on the homescreen for easy access. This feature is currently an iPhone exclusive, but will soon graduate to the iPad version.

The company website says: "With Flipboard for iPhone we’re introducing Cover Stories — one place to quickly catch up on some of the most interesting news, updates and photos being shared with you right now. The more you interact with your friends and the stories being shared, the smarter Cover Stories gets.

"You can refine what appears here by adding content to your Flipboard, muting anyone you’d rather not hear from, and connecting to your social networks. Cover Stories will be coming to your iPad in the near future."

iPad users will be pleased to know that a simple sign in on your iPhone will populate the app with all of your accounts, feeds and articles, rather than having to re-enter all of your details.
