Flipboard Gets Updated With GIFs For All and Top Stories


Flipboard for iOS gets updated to v2.0.5 and brings GIF support. Already on Android, GIF support comes to Flipboard for iPad and iPhone—so now anyone can collect and share their favorites in a magazine.

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.

Flipboard is available as an universal app ( iPhone and iPad ) for free on the app store
