Flipboard adds content from Tumblr and 500px, introduces Flipboard Accounts

Flipboard launched a new version of its personalized magazine app for iPad. There are few enhancements included in this release, such as:

  • Tumblr support – allowing users to create a magazine section out of a favorite Tumblr blog. Additionally, by logging into Tumblr, users can see all of their friends’ posts in one Flipboard section. Flipboard has also featured a number of popular Tumblr blogs in the Content Guide, accessible from the red ribbon at the top of any page.
  • Photographer Community 500px – browse gorgeous images from all over the world. To get started, the Flipboard team selected photo streams from 500px that are currently featured throughout the Content Guide.
  • Flipboard Accounts – this was one of the most requested features that allow more users to access their Flipboard magazine. Simply create an account and associate your social networks with it and every time you log-in, you’ll access your own personalized magazine, while other users will get their own “version” of the magazine.

Finally, Flipboard also reminded us that the iPhone version of their application is in works and will be released soon…
