For those who like reading news on our phones or tablets, Flipboard is probably our choice. The layout is easy to navigate, with a clean interface that keeps us interested. The recent addition of magazine creation is perfect for those of us who want to cobble together news for later, or just keep track of favorite articles.
What hasn’t been great for users, or Flipboard, is that the endeavor of creating these magazines has been a solo effort. To date, there has been no true collaborative effort to be accomplished in Flipboard. I edit my magazine, and it’s mine. This is fine, but a little boring over the course of time.
If I could collaborate with friends about news items, that would be fun. Flipboard thinks so, too, and has given us just that. Starting with the latest update, users can now collaborate with others on magazines. Simply add friends you want to collaborate with to your magazine, and anyone you invite can contribute. It’s simple, and looks really fun.
Check out the video below, which highlights the feature. Do you use Flipboard? Would collaboration interest you more than doing it all yourself?
