Flipboard 3.0, the third generation of the Flipboard social news magazine, has just been rolled out to the public. As Flipboard CEO Mike McCue explained, “it is by far the most personal and most magazine-like experience we’ve ever built, especially for the phone.”

Here he is, quickly presenting the new features you can expect to get from the third generation of Flipboard.

The recently released Flipboard 3.0, the third generation of Flipboard, has quite a lot to offer. It comes with a re-imagined interface, it provides seamless access to more than 30,000 topics, it lets you follow topics and people, and it comes with a curated roundup of top headlines called The Daily Edition.

Flipboard 3.0 – Main Features
  • New visual experience – the third generation Flipboard comes with a new design for iPhone and Android-powered smartphones. It is now even more elegant and more magazine-like.
  • Topics – lifestyle, DIY, health, advertising, gaming, photography, history, music, time lapse, and many more topics are available. There are more than 34,000 topics in all (but they’re only available in the US and Canada). You can find topics via search or by tapping on topic tags on articles.
  • Follow people – you can follow topics and you can also follow people. By following someone you will stay up-to-date on everything that person collected into his magazines.
  • The Daily Edition – this is a curated roundup of top headlines, a concise package made up of the world’s top headlines. It comes out every morning at 7AM and features top headlines in news, business, tech, sports and culture.
Flipboard 3.0 is available for iOS and Android smartphones.

Get Flipboard for iOS from Apple App Store.
Get Flipboard for Android from Google Play.


Since March 2013, Flipboard users have been able to create their own custom magazines. And since March 2013, Flipboard users created more than 10 million magazines. Flipboard 3.0’s new Topics feature will help these magazines gather an audience. When a Flipboard user searches for a topic, the list of results includes content from magazines curated by people who are passionate about that topic.

“Now, with topics, when you are browsing Flipboard and come across the amazing articles and videos people have picked, it reminds you that finding the best stories can’t just be done with algorithms alone. There is no algorithm for important or cool—it takes a human perspective. The magazines on Flipboard create these great packages, on just about anything you can imagine, that you can’t find anywhere else,” said Mike McCue, CEO and Co-founder of Flipboard.

I bring this up only to get to this: Flipboard’s new “My Magazine” video series aims to highlight some particularly moving curators who, at a key moment in life, identified their passion and made it their mission to share it with the world. Like Leland Melvin, NFL player that was put out of commission by a series of injuries and then discovered his passion for science and became an astronaut.
