Flipboard has been a favorite of iPad users everywhere, and we have been waiting for it to become available to iPhone users as well.

Well, the day has finally come! The iPad version was just updated in the App Store to be a universal app and is ready to be downloaded on iPhone devices. It even has some new features.

In Version 1.7:

New iPhone edition puts the power of Flipboard in your pocket.
Cover Stories for iPhone, a selection of interesting articles and photos being shared with you right now. And it gets smarter every time you use it. (Coming soon to iPad.)

Speed. Flip through pages as you would through a printed magazine, all with the flick of a thumb.

Flipboard Accounts:
-Sign into your Flipboard from either iPhone or iPad and get instant access to all your favorite content.
-Check out All Timelines. Flip through a single feed containing all articles and all photos being shared across all your social networks.

We’re very excited to test Flipboard for iPhone out. Unfortunately, some users are experiencing an error message when trying to download the app, but just keep trying.

As always, we’ll keep you updated.

You can download Flipboard in the App Store free of charge.
