Flipboard Pro app review: enjoy a customized magazine



Sure, you can sign up for a news magazine subscription where you know you'll be interested in a handful of articles, or you can enjoy your own personalized magazine. The Pro app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and allows users to make their own news magazine. The app acts as an intelligent magazine and finds only the most intriguing and interesting stories that are based on your own preferences.

Experience the Personalization

If you've never experienced apps like Pro that personalize the experience, this is the perfect opportunity to try it. The app essentially saves you a whole bunch of time and hassle because you won't be wading through stories you aren't interested in and you won't have to search for the items yourself. You will be given all the best news articles, investigative journalism pieces, and commentary not just from your area but from around the world. There’s a good chance this app will be able to find stories that you may not otherwise even know about. The algorithm that the app uses to find stories has actually been built specifically for the app so you know you're getting top-notch search capabilities.

The app offers a number of different in-app purchases that range in price from $0.99 to $4.99 depending on what kind of service you want and for how long. Keep in mind, whatever you pick will likely end up being less than a newspaper or news magazine subscription. In the app's most recent update there was a Top News Widget added to the Today screen and it is now compatible with iOS 8. The app seems to be hitting the mark with users and has 4.5 out of five stars.

Using the App

Although the app can be used on all your iDevices it was built specifically for the iPad and that's what device it will display and perform best on. When you first start using the app you'll be able to set what kind of topics you are interested in and how much of those topics you want to see. There are 400 categories to choose from, with more than 3,000 sources used. The user experience here is very smooth and I like that you can get your news so quick. Even if you have just a few minutes you can still get a look at the top stories that appeal to you.
