Ever look at Twitter and think it’s just too much to take in? Flipboard takes the stress out of Tweeting and Facebooking.
I don’t know about you, but when I look at Twitter often I just can’t get my head around it. Lots of tweets with links, that you need to click on to read, and often are not what you are expecting. A number of apps have become available over the years, but none turns tweeting into something far more user freindly than Flipboard.
Flipboard is available for the iPad from the app store and it costs absolutely nothing.
Flipboard brings all the tweets together, of people you follow and turns them into a sort of virtual magazine. Each page is different from the last, the layout however much like you might find in a newspaper or magazine.
Articles and links are blown up, allowing the reader to get a better insight into each tweet.
Your feed will even include your own Tweets, so you get a good idea of exactly how they look to others that use the same application. Each page is divided in the middle to give an impression of turning a page, so when you move on to the next page you see a virtual page turn.
If you touch any of the tweets, it expands them, touch them again and the page expands into the browser of the programme.
If you don’t quite get Twitter, but have an iPad download the app and what your familiarity of Twitter expand into a completely different experience.
