Flipboard Accounts syncs data across devices

The latest Flipboard update introduces Flipboard Accounts, teasing to imminent and anticipated release of Flipboard for the iPhone. Creating an account will allow you to access your personal version of Flipboard on a shared iPad or link it to the iPhone version. MacStores walks users through the steps on creating an account, noting that the feature already is enabled on the iPad. One feature I like is the ability to capture an avatar from Twitter or Facebook for you.

The update also adds support for Tumblr and 500px.
