Windows Phone has been getting a number of updates and app additions, and with the big names coming faster than ever, Windows Phone is gaining in usage. On Friday, Microsoft showed off the latest Windows Phone update, with Flipboard, which will make users excited and happy.
Flipboard is one of the biggest apps on the mobile platform, and has been available on the iOS and Android platforms for some time. With its addition to the Windows Phone platform, Windows Phone users can see the visual awesomeness that is Flipboard, and especially on the Lumia 1020, 1520 and other phones.
What Is Flipboard?
Flipboard is a visual news app that lets users build personalized magazines. Users are able to pick a few subjects, and Flipboard is able to build a visual custom magazine based on that. The app also takes news sources and social networks to build the magazine, so its always up to date, and always a site worth visiting to read.
These types of apps are great for users on mobile platforms, as they can follow a number of trends, topics, and subject they enjoy. They can view these magazines on one page, and then read them while in traffic, on the go, at a meal, or anywhere else. With it on Windows Phone, now Windows Phone users can enjoy it as well.
Why So Late?
Many Windows Phone users have been wanting to get this app on their phone, but its taken a long time to arrive. This app has a lot of technical programming behind it, and has taken a while to build the right app for the Windows Phone experience. By building the right app, Flipboard has put together the perfect app for Windows Phone users starting today.
The app is available on the Windows Phone and Windows App Stores, and has a number of stunning features that will please users. It is mobile in nature, and is best viewed on mobile devices, like phones and tablets. By expanding it though beyond the mobile platform, Flipboard on Windows will get millions of new users on the desktop as well. Its a win-win for Windows and Flipboard users.
Flipboard is great as a mobile app. Now, on Windows Phone it will be better than ever.
