A couple of days ago, Flipboard received an update that brought a couple of minor improvements along with the usual bug fixes and performance optimizations. As it turned out, though, that same update also brought a notable change involving Instagram's recently launched video feature. As noted by The Next Web, Flipboard has been updated with support for videos shared from Instagram. Now, the popular social magazine app is able to display videos from the popular photo-sharing and video-sharing social networking app. For some reason, the addition of this enhancement was not included in the changelog of Flipboard's latest update. What did get included are the following:
Flipboard is available in the App Store for free. The app also received an update earlier this month that gave users the ability to co-curate magazines. Instagram's video feature was launched by Facebook just last week, obviously in response to Twitter's Vine. Not unexpectedly, Instagram's video shares to Twitter, and presumably across the Web in general, have increased at the expense of Vine's.
- Reminder: Log in to Google Reader on Flipboard on or before June 30th to save your feeds and folders.
- Now you can share to Twitter and Facebook when sharing to your magazines.
