Very informative 5/5
This is one of my favor news apps - very intuitive, informative and well designed. I can quickly get the info; whatever I am looking for. Excellent !
Flipboard asked me to rate the app in an in-app pop up. Trying to submit 1 star was not allowed. That’s pretty shady. So why one star? Because the app sends you to the publisher to read the article. This is bad because any ad-blocker u might have installed in Safari does not work in Flipboards “web-browser”. So to read an article you end up downloading megabytes of ads and ad-tracking scripts from every publisher. In addition, Flipboard inserts its own full page ads you cannot pinch out of. The whole Flipboard experience is bad for your data plan, bad for your privacy and bad for your health. Apples own News app is just better. Better curated, better privacy and better for your data plan. If you like Reddit, forget it, Flipboard does a poor job and leave curation to third party idealist. Basically any particular website you want to add to Flipboard is poorly presented and not curated unless it is part of an idealists “magazine”.

Flip board is absolutely amazing!!
Not For People Who Select Their Own Feeds 1/5
The view for articles and news from the phone is very limited (3 articles at once) and the only way to change this is to add tons of magazines in which you have to thumb through. Even if you do make a page for each news source you want to see, you still only get the three stories per source. You can’t remove the “For You” tab that the app starts on which contained nothing of interest even after I setup my own selected news sources... user friendly if you trust the app to feed you info, not friendly at all for someone not interested in being spoon fed.

Finally a reason to delete 1/5
This last update gave me a reasons to finally delete this app. It might be a good app for some, but ‘new’ features are definitely getting in the way of my news feed.
Ok but... 2/5
Great app for the most part, but then all of a sudden you were no longer able to see your comments or notifications. Very frustrating. I tried contacting flipbook but they do not respond. It is a great place to read really good articles etc. But as a company they are very aggravating in their lack of response.m
Great collection...but 5/5
I really enjoy Flipboard...for all things not political. If you’re looking for political topics, it seems very biased, very slanted with a lot of negative articles...of course mostly directed at Trump. I would like to see a balance. Chris I understand that these are drawn from the media outlets and most media are a bunch of leftist blah blah blah. But I would like to read balanced journalism. Outside of the political articles they do offer a wide variety of interests and I like the email feature that articles arrive in your mailbox
Shows what you want to see 5/5
By I wish I'm cool
Highly customizable. Just select topics or interest and quality articles, news and interesting information will shows. You will enjoy to discover and benefit from every feeds
Left-winged political garbage 1/5
Updated for 2018:
I’ve decided sadly that it’s time to delete Flipboard. I used to view Flipboard everyday, I could handle the UI changes but this shift from a great app to some left-winged bias push... I just can’t take it anymore. If you’re someone like myself, who just wants to read unbiased news, instead of left-wing political garbage. I suggest you stay away.
The new interface is absolutely awful and VERY much disappointing. It seems as if flipboard is moving away from its roots and becoming just like any other news feed app. The "flip-like" features have dwindled, the interface is so boring and almost reminds you more of RSS feeds. I really hope they consider reverting back. Would even be willing to pay for the change.
I use this app every single day. It is so user-friendly, gives me all the information I want and news feeds are updated instantaneously!
Flipboard Tailored to My Interests 5/5
Flipboard is great for letting me make my own magazine out of various subjects, topics, and news sources. I can skim over articles or really dive into the subject matter. It is tailored to suit my interests and need for information.
Best way to view the news 4/5
By Latitude 38.
Get your news tailored to your views also have what your views are in your own news mag . It’s your best source of what interests you most
Too many emails! 1/5
I like news, but Do NOT like email notification......makes me flippin mad!
Co-host topics 5/5
I’m a co-host on Freedomizer Radio Proof Negative Show 9pm est. I love gathering stories from small journalists and near stories from around the world. Their is even a ‘pool of good news’ Page I subscribed too. Thanks for making my job easy and informing for everyone else.
(Do do site where I have received the story and often advertise for free!)
Flipboard’s Evolution 1/5
Boy has flipboard changed over the years. Some definite positives but most notably to a users experience is the obvious greed that has seeped into every corner of the App. Each article and fees is relentlessly and saturated shamelessly with ads to drive revenue.
A pity, what was once a great app has fallen so far.
A long time Flipboard user(Since it came as a stock App on Samsung)
Your passion is most likely covered. Highly recommended.
Concept great but... 1/5
regardless of news you customize...it manages to still deliver top news that is mostly liberal and anti-trump. I was looking for unbiased news but it’s algorithms are left leaning...delivering CNN news to me upon opening the ap when it’s a source I didn’t select...and when most of the news sources I did select were conservative.
Flippin Fine App 5/5
I like the simplicity and relevance of Flipboard. I never want to go back to just scrolling through news.
Best single source for my information 5/5
I get more of the news, information, and insights I want from Flipboard than any other source. This makes staying informed easy and engaging. I have general and specific news groups. My favorite app because I’m a dedicated reader.
My best source of news and info. 5/5
My most used and valued app.
It’s a hassle to comment on articles, specially if it’s a popular one. First you have to tap “comments” then scroll all the way down past every comment posted before you can add yours! That’s a stupid design!
Best App 5/5
Great way to see all news aggregated.
Tailor made news feed 5/5
By Chiricano 2001
With a vast array of topics and interests I can select, this feed gives me a steady stream of relevant and interesting news. Well done! Best rating. I send great articles to friends every week.
By Robert MacEwan
Sets the bar. Excellent blows Apple News out of the water.
Great App 5/5
To me Flipboard has the most interesting and informing articles.
The Best 5/5
Flipboard has the perfect recipe for news. The ability to organize news topics in the form of magazines is quite ingenious. Outstanding!!
Use it Daily 4/5
By Odyssey TV
Use it each day to find out what is happening in the world🌍👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻.
Would like to be able to tell people to subscribe to magazines that I created. Check out my work @earthtrek360.
Love all the articles, everything is so informative and interesting, love the flip through pages ❤️
Not quite as good as the old Pulse reader before LinkedIn bought it 4/5
Solid reader with a few odd limitations, for instance, the number of pages of sources before you have to go through extra steps to read them. More and more sponsored content sneaking in lately as well.
Love it but a flaw or two 4/5
Have enjoyed this app for years but now more of their sources(eg. NYT and Washington Post) looking for paid subscriptions. Very annoying. If I wanted to pay five papers to read a couple each’s articles I would. Go for Flipboard for variety and disparate points of view. Perhaps not for much longer. Will miss it much.
Love it.. but... 4/5
This is one of my favorites! The comment sections are fun. However, I noticed some political biases w/ what comments stay up and which don’t, DEPENDING ON THE ARTICLE. I don’t believe in censorship and I have caught on to this unfortunate trend as others have too.
Love Flipboard 5/5
I have been using it for years never any issues. Love that you can customize what channels to get and The news you want.
Too Good 5/5
By Mac Drė
Honestly my only complaint is that it's too addictive and I use up all my data every month...
I'll stick with Apple News... 1/5
I really like Flipboard but while adding all my news I'm limited to just 9 categories? Seriously? So I have to pick just 9 categories out of tons of possibilities in order to get news tailored to me? Who is it actually tailored for? Me or Flipboard? Never mind. Limited capabilities means not fully in the know in regards to news. I'm not going to choose a few categories and not be able to view others because the developers don't know what they're doing. Apple doesn't give you thus restriction so I'll just stick to that app. Runs smoother anyways. This one is choppy.
Account Required 1/5
No thanks, I'll pass.
Guess I’ll never know... 1/5
whether this is a great execution or not. I don’t use apps that I have to create an account for. Go peddle your aggregating software to Android users-they don’t care about security or phishing.
Fails on Facebook posts 3/5
Twice now, while writing a post to FB, this app has magically exited the editor, losing several minutes of my writing, and dumped me back into the article I was attempting to post on FB. This has happened with different items on different days and does not happen consistently - some posts work just fine. Both times, the material I was typing was several sentences, which made it even more annoying. I’m using an iPhone 8 with the latest iOS. I live this app but no longer try to post articles to FB from it unless I don’t intend to add any commentary. Instead, I go to another news source and post from there.
APPLE NEWS is better. Waaay better 1/5
Flipboard is far behind AppleNews. It lacks the simplicity and to the point interface with customized articles that provide elegant and immersive experience.
Nice app 4/5
Love the app and the various news sources/feeds it recommends, based on what I read. Removed one star because it doesn’t resume where I left off when I switch back to the app (say after pressing the Home button) so need to flip all the way thru articles I’ve read to get to where I was. Wish the app could remember where I left it and just resume at that article.
I live this app, but I keep getting botnet warnings and notifications from my firewall when I use Flipboard. I guess I will be forced to discontinue using it to avoid this potential problem.
Updated review 5/5
Developer responded and the app is currently glitch free!!! Back to Flipboard I go.
[This has always been a 4 or 5 star app, for me, but the latest update has made it unwatchable. It flashes with every page flip on the iPhone X. I've switched to Apple's native News app until the next update.]
My primary source of information!! Thank you for this app 5/5
Just cant go a day without getting updated on most interesting topics i care for. Flipboard can’t be better, love the app! Changed my life basically. Thank you!!
The "F" Word FLIPBOARD 5/5
This is one F word I like to repeat., FLIPBOARD Everything I want to read in one place. I truly love this app. and for an old jaded guy that is saying something. Well done app dudes and dudetts.
Only one complaint, I would like to see more stories about and for Baby Boomers. Please keep up the good work.
My favorite source of news articles 5/5
Flipboard collates news stories from more diverse sources of news than your usual news apps. Stories are tailored to my interests, but not necessarily limited to my way of thinking, or where I would usually go to find stories.
If I had to pick one place to source all my news from Flipboard would be my choice. Well done!
Not a day without Flipboard 5/5
I read a lot, and my go to site is Flipboard, don’t have a day without it.
Mixed Real and Fake news 2/5
By Blunt w/o Filter
Flipboard doesn’t screen the articles viewed on this app. You have use your research to legitimize articles you read. The dangers of fake and often radical, plus racist publishers are rampant!! It’s hard to distinguish what’s real or what is made up. You do have the option to mute these articles and I frequently do. I’ve ask support about these problems and they won’t lift a finger.
Please stop 4/5
I think this app is great but please stop including articles that I can not read. Especially the Wall Street Journal...nothing is more annoying than clicking to find only the first 2 sentences and ad to buy a subscription.
Used to love, now it's all ads 3/5
I don't know if this is Apple trying to push their News app, but ever since that came to be, Flipboard feels limited. It's not as good as what it used to be. Every other page is an ad now, supposedly curated for me, with things like superhero movies and crafts for sale on Etsy that are of no interest to me. Miss the old version and hope it comes back
Easy ways to change my profile 3/5
Or maybe it’s there and I’m missing it
My review 5/5
Better than Apple news !!
