New Flipboard Update Is Out, With GIFs For All and Top Stories


Who doesn’t love GIFs? Flipboard readers have already incorporated them into lively magazines like “Just GIF It,” “GIF Pop” and “GIF Me a Break.” Already on Android, GIF support comes to Flipboard for iPad and iPhone—so now anyone can collect and share their favorites in a magazine. (To celebrate, we’ve got some GIF-centric magazines we love featured today in By Our Readers. Tap on the red ribbon to find them in the Content Guide.)

Here’s what else is new about the latest edition of Flipboard:

  • Top Stories in U.S. News, Business, Tech and Sports. The first seven stories in these sections reflect the leading news right now; continue to flip for more news of the day or to catch up on previous days’ events.
  • Explore more from your favorite magazine makers. When you’ve created more than two magazines, your magazines get a “pagebox” on the fourth page. The avatar in this box is now tappable, creating a quick jump to the curator’s profile page, which has an overview of all of his or her curation activities.
  • Invitation to share. You’re working hard to create beautiful magazines—and they deserve to be seen! Once you’ve flipped 10 items into a magazine, you’ll be prompted to share it with your friends and followers.

iPad and iPhone readers can experience these new features by updating their Flipboard.
