Flipboard initially launched for the iPad way back in 2010, and while the app has matured over the years, a brand new feature will probably make users quite happy.On Tuesday, February 10, Flipboard officially launched a brand new web version of its app, appropriately called “Flipboard for the Web.” With the new way to read your news stories away from the app, the articles won’t be stripped down into a “reader only”-eque format, as has been common with Flipboard, but instead will just be a compacted version of the full story. Moreover, when the article has been completed, the reader can be taken automatically the original source material. Only some sites, like the Associated Press, will see stripped-down versions of its stories presented through Flipboard for the Web.
Flipboard for the Web is available now for both existing Flipboard users, as well as those who want to sign up now. Just head to Flipboard.com and sign in or sign up, and the news will be presented in Flipboard’s visual aesthetic. You can check out the promo video for the announcement below. Flipboard.com is available in any current Web browser, too.
