Flipboard users?

Anybody else here use the app Flipboard on a phone or tablet to read news articles? It's a pretty neat app, and they added a feature recently that allows users to create their own "magazine" which is really just a collection of curated articles.

Because I do like to experiment with any and all technology, ;) , I figured I'd create an IKE magazine. The purpose of it is to collect kiting related articles (and club related, if we find any) and "flip" them, as they call it, into the IKE Club magazine.

You can see the IKE Flipboard magazine at http://flip.it/CJRVL on the web, or in the app, search for "IKE Club."

I just thought it might be a neat thing for people that already use Flipboard to subscribe to.

I believe you can set up a magazine with multiple contributors so anyone that comes across an interesting kiting article can "Flip it" in. (With a browser bookmarklet, or right from the app.) I'll look into that...

Happy flipping.

I like it. How long did it take you to put together what you did?

No time at all. Just created a magazine, and used the browser bookmarklet to add articles. It does its own behind the scenes magic to make it look as magazine-Iike as possible.

Just a thought - what about also sharing new content on the IKE FB account to drive more friends of IKE to the stories?

It looks like something you spent a fair amount of time on. Kids and their interwebs and transistors, what is this world coming to......
