I actually found this app several years ago, when I was watching the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference that takes place in New York City. The first year they had the conference, they live-streamed it and I was able to watch it online. It was FABULOUS!
Anyway, one of the speakers that year (I can’t remember who) had shared this little jewel – Flipboard. I immediately went out and downloaded it for my iPhone. You can connect your social media accounts such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, Tumblr, Google+, YouTube, and much more. Flipboard then pulls all of that content in so that it resides all in one place.

You can add a whole slew of other categories that Flipboard provides, anything from New & Noteworthy to Business to Tech & Science to Arts & Culture to Sports to Food & Dining to name a few. Trust me when I say they have anything and everything.
When you are browsing through all of the content and you find something that you’d like to read but want to save it for later, you can select “read later” and pick which application you’d like to use for that too. Right now their selections are Instapaper, Pocket, and Readability. I use Readability.
I can’t go over every single feature and benefit this app offers because it is extensive. You’ll have to download it yourself and play with it, explore it for yourself. I’ve had it for a couple of years now and I am still finding new bells and whistles.
The latest thing they added are Magazines. You can create your own and share it with others and you can also select from other magazines that other people have created.
So that is my Great Find for the Week – Flipboard. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
