Flowboard has just received a major update that brings a number of notable enhancements. Released last April, Flowboard is an app designed for creating side-scrolling stories and presentations with images, videos, and other rich media. The latest update to Flowboard actually adds support for two specific media types, namely, YouTube videos and PDF files. With the new version of the app, you can now search for YouTube videos to be included in your Flowboard publications. You can now also upload PDF files and have them displayed within the app. Note that YouTube videos are not available offline as they're streamed only. On the other hand, PDF files are downloadable and viewable offline. But Flowboard's PDF support comes with an important caveat: the ability to upload PDF files is available only with a Flowboard Premium subscription, which costs $5 per month. In addition to said ability, Flowboard Premium allows for bigger file upload sizes and a monthly upload quota of 1GB. And in addition to YouTube video and PDF file support, the new Flowboard update brings the following enhancements:
