Updated Flipboard gets more sections, better layout, improved recommendations and more

Flipboard, that awesome social magazine app for the iPad, has been updated recently with several new features and few improvements. Here’s what the version 1.0.2 brings:

  • More sections – you can add up to 21 sections to your Flipboard, and remove accounts that you don’t use.
  • Faster launch – thanks to some kind of content caching (limited offline browsing).
  • Fresher content – automatic refresh when new content is ready. Loads more pages when you get close to the end of a section.
  • Smarter page layouts – web page snapshots are shown when text preview isn’t available.
  • Better recommendations – improved recommended sections and added custom feeds.
  • Other features – retweet with comment, more reliable video playback, view original web page for cover images, better Facebook feed fidelity.

And that’s about it. If you own an iPad and want a really easy and cool way to keep up with what your friends are reading and/or doing across social networks, Flipboard is the way to go. You can grab it free of charge from a link below.
