Flipboard is on the web as of this week. This is brilliant news.
I have been using clipboard to read twitter – like a magazine with images and text. It changed my life. As a clipboard user you forget about the other world of paper, and subscriptions.
In Flipboard you subscribe to all sorts of feeds, sites, tweets, and anything else you can access.
You can post from Flipboard so it can become the place where you connect with the world – the world in your hand, in your mobile as it were. The only problem was – while its beautiful – its small and hard to read. On the web its luxurious and rivals Life magazine of old. It can transform the most cryptic tweet into a full screen image.
Here is a piece about Flipboard – http://www.cnet.com/au/how-to/getting-started-with-flipboard-on-the-web/.
Here is where you need to go https://flipboard.com.
That said I find you have to set up your account and feeds using the mobile interface – the web version has been imagined as an ‘addendum’ (sounds like a body part in the nether regions) as the link above says.
In short to the question – what does clipboard do?
Flipboard has made waiting obsolete!
