When we spent some quality time with Flipboard
over the summer, when the iPad
was still a new and exciting thing, we liked the idea but not so much the implementation -- there just wasn't enough stuff filling the pages of our pretend magazines. Since then Flipboard of course went on to win Apple's US iTunes iPad app of the year award and is now celebrating with a major update: Google Reader
support. This quite naturally means a huge boost in available content and turns this into a serious way to get your news, with much nicer presentation than your average RSS aggregator. That presentation has also been boosted by Flickr
integration, meaning a treasure trove of pretty pictures to go along with that dire news about US politics you can't help but subscribe to.
