Flipboard 2.1 Features New iOS 7 Design Tweaks, Performance Optimizations And More
Flipboard has just received another update, which brings the popular social magazine app to version 2.1. Flipboard 2.1 serves as an optimization update for the iPad Air and iPad mini, offering better performance and more polish for Apple's newest tablets. The update is also said to include speed improvements on all iOS devices, including the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c, which now have more section tiles on the first page. Moreover, it functions as a follow-up update to Flipboard's preliminary iOS 7-optimizing update last September:
In addition, touches throughout continue to embrace the fresh, modern design of iOS 7. For example, the social action icons like the like heart and comment bubble have had a makeover, and avatars are now round. The visual experience of Flipboard should feel more streamlined.[caption id="attachment_482250" align="aligncenter" width="320"] Flipboard[/caption] The latest update to Flipboard also adds the ability to change the text size settings in the app and an onscreen alert for when there are new items in a feed. Also including miscellaneous improvements and bug fixes, Flipboard 2.1 is available now in the App Store for free. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later. Flipboard 2.0 was released late last March, allowing users to collect and save content into their very own magazines. In the interim, Flipboard received a number of intermediate updates that added new features, including profile pages, magazine co-curation, Instagram video support, and animated GIF support.
