User reviews of Flipboard

    Beautiful program for reading information from on-line. It’s in my top 5 most used iPad apps!!!!

    If you have not tried this app, you must try it out! It's very graphical and pretty on my retina iPad and my 12.9” iPad Pro. Generally works very smoothly. Could cache the data a little better / faster, I've got fast internet at home, but sometimes it's slow updating and if I just spent a while reading the last entry, seems like it could read ahead a little bit, it could make the experiences so much better... BUT be careful if you have a cellular connection! FlipBoard (being so graphical and beautiful) is a HUGE a data hog (assuming you're viewing something graphical and not text) so if you're on a low data plan be careful. I used over 10% of my 250MB data plan in less than 5 minutes (I tested this again at the end of this month, just a few minutes and 50MB of data was gone!). This is NOT a flaw, it's just the way super graphical apps are, but it goes SO fast I wanted to point it out. Because of the retina display it "shrinks" some graphics too small (like animated GIFs in Tumblr pages) and it's too hard to read. Needs some user adjustment on that (what size to shrink to retina proportions) and to size text. It shrinks things WAY too far on the iPad Pro. It’s got a great search option that searches a variety of sources all at once. I don't think it's as useful on the iPhone for browsing, maybe if you went to a specific section, but I'm still not sold on that yet...

    A little bit shady

    Flipboard asked me to rate the app in an in-app pop up. Trying to submit 1 star was not allowed. That’s a bit shady. What I don’t like is that the app sends you to the publisher to read the article. This is bad because any ad-blocker u might have installed in Safari does not work in Flipboards “web-browser”. So to read an article you end up downloading megabytes of ads and ad-tracking scripts from every publisher. That is, unless the publisher has an agreement with Flipboard, in which case Flipboard inserts its own full page ads you cannot pinch out of. The whole Flipboard experience can therefore be very _bad_ for your data plan and for your privacy. That said, Flipboard is very useful and gives you the opportunity to browse through articles within topics of interest in a very nice way. Apples own News app is a strong contender though, but for now I do prefer Flipboard.

    Flipboard with a little less Flip

    Starting to become dated..Absolutely love the update having a month to make magazines is just divine. Staying at 4⭐️ stars still miss Still an sore - my primary flipboard screen. Begging and Pleading - Please, please, please bring back the old Flipboard screen somewhere inside the app. I love the extra stuff but if there could just be an option to have it on the bottom of the menu? I want to click the app and have big and little pictures flip down animation for new stories. This isn't rocket science, I'll pay to have the feature back. Why change something that's not broken? Please Flipboard!! New Flipboard 4⭐️ - This is by far my favorite app but this new update is disappointing with removing the primary page. I've been with you since iPad 1 and the best day ever was when it hit the iPhone. What is this? It's less flippy, now I have all of this useless extra white on the top of my dashboard stating "following" instead of a gorgeous layout that took over the entire screen. Old Flipboard 5⭐️ - This is by far the elite news reader, and it's all the information u want to read. You make your own newspaper...I always tell people to download first when they get a new iPad or iPhone. Keep up the good work, u have my attention ❤❤❤❤❤❤😃😜😃❤❤❤❤

    Flipboard is indispensable to me

    I first installed Flipboard on my iPad in 2011. It was one of the first apps installed on my first iPad, and I’ve used Flipboard more or less every day since August 2011, through the present (August 2018). I find Flipboard indispensable to using my iPad. Flipboard’s a staff skillfully curates a very broad range of news about current events and also features a huge variety of special interest magazines and articles, and is markedly superior to all other news magazine apps I’ve seen. I am often surprised by how quickly Flipboard posts news about current events, usually incredibly rapidly after the reported events have occurred. My iPad would be much less useful, and much less fun to use, if Flipboard were ever unavailable to me. Thank you Flipboard staff for making and maintaining such a great app.

    New video ads

    This has been one of my most used apps for awhile. However with the new auto play video ads it might need to go. Even if you watch the full ad you still have to tap the x at the top left and with the iPhone plus it’s kinda annoying. If it happen once every in awhile no problem, but it’s the same video ad after every 5-7 flips. PLEASE improve or remove this. I know the app is free and nothing in the world is truly free, but make it more user friendly with the ads UPDATE : Since posting this review this issue appears to be resolved or close to it. I still use this app every day and appreciate the hard work it must take to make such a great app. I don’t mind ads I know they pay the bills, just didn’t like the way it interfered. All is good now, thank you!
