The app supply feeds from several news sources as well as social networks in a format of a magazine. This format was re-engineered to suit the interface of iPhone. This was done without putting into sacrifice “the notion of bringing beauty to these posts,” which was quoted by Flipboard CEO Mike McCue.

The iPhone format has the signature tile format stacked in a single file. Users can also mark the news which attracted their interests and save them for later reading.

One of the features that is unique to is the Cover Stories. This tool gathers stories that are relevant to you and your closest contacts. This tool works with the help of Flipboard’s algorithms.
