If you have an iPhone or an Android smartphone, chances are you’re familiar with the Flipboard app. As someone who always wants easy and convenient access to the latest news, I have to say that Flipboard is brilliant. Thanks to the app I get news from numerous online sources and from multiple social networks. From a central location, the app’s magazine-like interface, I have easy access to all the news I want. That is, in my mind, simply brilliant.

The news is that a new category of users can now get to enjoy Flipboard’s wonderful functionality: Windows 8.1 users. Flipboard is now available for Windows 8.1-powered desktops and devices. Go get it for free from the Windows Store here.

“A new edition of Flipboard is available,” said the Flipboard Team, “and it’s a truly beautiful, custom experience with unique touches made just for the Microsoft platform. The Flipboard team looked closely at details like font treatments and page layouts and developed a design that takes advantage of native Windows 8 swipe gestures and such features as live tiles.”
