Terrible App 1/5
If your looking for real news aggregator and not a lefty indoctrination app then don’t come here. Subscribe directly to the sources and skip the middle man.
New version doesn’t open 5/5
I can’t get to the app. I first got a screen about snake venom that wouldn’t let me leave and now I have a blank screen that says Mashable in the corner when I try to swipe.
I was able to delete the app and reinstall and it is working again. I love the app and have changed the rating to 5 stars. I’m not sure why it was frozen before.
Hell No to advertisements 1/5
By crazy ben
Thanks but no thanks!
It once was a great app and became popular...then infested with ads.
I deleted the app

Flipboard review 2/5
By Cheta pants
Great articles and clever format. The problem is when you open an article you want to read. There are a thousand pop up advertisements that prevent you from reading the article. Many of times it will redirect you to another website with no way of getting back to the article. This app can really be great if they would get rid of all the clutter and redirecting advertisements within the article. But as it stands, this app is very needy.
No more Amazon Ads 1/5
I don’t need the first page to be Amazon advertisements of junk.
News timemanoon 5/5
The best app 2012
I love it! 5/5
To me this app is the best of the news apps. The form and function makes it very easy to use. I recently added Apple News + to my iPad but I still find Flipboard has the superior interface.
Read away... 5/5
I love Flipboard, there is a variety and you never get tired of reading
Less Like This 2/5
The “Less Like This” button clearly doesn’t do anything. I keep telling it that I don’t wanna read about Fortnite but it keeps telling me about it anyway. Battle Royale games are SUPER boring and I couldn’t care less about the news surrounding them.
Hard to get Flipboard to focus on what I want to see 2/5
Flipboard insists on feeding me news and current events on the Cover Stories page. While this is great for some people, I have other sources for these news stories. I want Flipboard to focus on my interests, and stop the force-feeding of news they seem to be pushing. I use Flipboard for music, art and culture stories. That’s what I want to see on the Cover Stories page, and Flipboard can’t seem to make that work.
Fix ad controls 1/5
Flipboard is great. I use it for the majority of my news reading.
But there is a problem.
Not just any ads. I want to be perfectly clear here, ads in and of themselves are fine. What I take exception with are ads that hit you with disgusting images.
I don’t need to see graphic images of “20 years of earwax” being removed while I’m eating breakfast.
I don’t need any information on toenail fungus or any gross images of nasty foot diseases.
Why can’t we block specific ads? As I noted above, I am not opposed to ads. Sometimes useful ones even come up and I click on them. But we ought to be able to insulate ourselves for imagery that makes us want to hurl.
Short of engaging parental controls and blocking these sites through Safari, we’re stuck with them randomly showing up on Flipboard.
Flipboard, fix this. You deserve five stars, but until I can block disgusting images, you get one.
Update! Wow! Now an ad keeps popping up for “Truthfinder” a website that helps you find out “if they’ve been cheating”. Great! So useful (a sarcasm font would be helpful here). It’s also great that it looks like an ad for porn. Scratch using Flipboard at work, in a public place, at home, or really anyplace where you wouldn’t want someone passing behind you to think you’re looking at porn.
Please fix this.
Full of Troll Bots (probably largely Russian), Updated 1/5
Update 4/18/19: Flipboard responded with nonsense about them “striving for safe and enjoyable environment,” with no details. Next, they put the burden on me to flag those accounts to them, which BTW I have done, but to my knowledge they haven’t actually done anything about improving their app. I have since quit using Flipboard, and am glad to be away from the Troll Bots. My 1-star rating stands...
Flipboard has failed to protect their site from a large number of troll bots whose intent is create an atmosphere of hate and distrust, thereby destroying any social purpose. They actually have the audacity to create fake arguments. If you look at the profiles, it’s obvious they are not people.
Sexually Explicit 1/5
No matter how many times I report sexually explicit articles, more keep popping up. It’s tiring, annoying, intrusive and just rude.
Now there are a constant ads running about “cheating”. So every after reading a few articles, I get to see a photograph of a couple, apparently cheating, in a compromising position.
Come on! What are we in 5th grade!?! If this is journalism then I’m out. Clean up your act.
All that matters, all the time. 5/5
Love FLIPBOARD! Everything of interest is here...right at my fingertips. YAY!
Please fix the login process if you want people to use this app 1/5
Tried to switch from the Apple news app now that they try to feed you all kinds of paid content and wanted Flipboard as an alternate. As I tried to set up the app it forces you to create a login ID and password. Apparently I already have one but my password doesn’t meet current requirements and it asked me to reset it. I went through the reset process but after several attempts I never received the reset email. After 30 minutes of trying to use this app unsuccessfully, I gave up.
I Like The Layout but.... 1/5
The widget Never works right. The links go to a blank stalled page forever.
All other News widgets work fine.
In the app, sometimes a full screen ad pops up with no way to close it.
Navigation is hit or miss. Again the layout is good.
Two stars is being generous.
11/17/18 Just updated. Still messed up. Still have to restart to get out of viewed page.
This from an iPad Pro 10.5.
4/15/19 More consistent now. Nothing loads on the iPad Pro 10.5. Am
Works ok on the iPhone 7.
Important issues 3/5
By W Gil
I would like to see the most important daily issues covered by at least three sources grouped together on my pages so I have a more diverse and critical overview.
A Good Mix of Sources Helps You Get the News 5/5
By Trees Through The Forest
When it comes to news, the more you read the better you understand.
Flipboard has put together groupings of news events to your fingertips and from different sources. Remember not every reporter has had the whole story, and being able to read about an news event from different reporters, then you will get a better idea of what is going on.
Flipboard also allows you to select news sources that you want to see. The challenge for you is to select sources that you don’t typically read so to help you get the best idea of the story.
A Front For Ads, Possible virus issues 1/5
By BR HOG
Well, I use to really like this app. But, it is all about the money, isn’t it? Too many advertisements that slow down the app to a crawl and often times freezes up. It just isn’t worth sitting there watching it load up with all of the adds slowing it down. Not worth time time to have to deal with that. So, I will try and find a news app that gives stories as a priority instead ads.
This is an amended rating. This news app is getting worse. I am going to delete this app. The advertisements are getting worse and freezing up my iPad. I am afraid that there maybe a virus issue as well. User beware....I am deleting this app for good.
Great app but toxic comment section. 4/5
I’d give this app five stars, but there’s no way to block the psychopaths in the comments section.
Seriously, don’t read the comments. It’s the absolute worst dregs of humanity. Really wish the developers would give users some sort of tools to block or ignore these homunculi dwelling on its app.
My worst app for news 1/5
My worst app for news
Like to see higher quality articles 2/5
By Amy's Next Review
I am getting a little bored with so many articles with “numbers” in the headlines, such as “The Seven Things You Need to do if You Want to Succeed at Work.” The numbers are very arbitrary and the lists often don’t include anything I’ve never heard before. It often seems like some of the articles aren’t written by experts at all. I understand it isn’t vital to have experts every time, but at age 46, I feel like I don’t learn many new things from the articles.
Is that something that can be improved?
Amy’s Second Review
The most interesting app out there 5/5
By Cj the wise
The most information formatted for you what more can you ask for.
By Papa mison
There are plenty of online news sources out there, including many which don’t repeatedly request your money. Some Flipboard media constantly beg for money- that’s only a minor annoyance. The major annoyance to this site is its unreliability. It crashes on me frequently. Oftentimes when I’m in the middle of an article the app will shut down and return me to my phone’s home screen (no other app does this). Lastly there are unrelated video screens which pop and interrupt my reading, videos which I cannot completely close without shutting down the app altogether. Such a bother...
Essential for every day reading!
Looks nice, but..... 3/5
Great looking, fast news app, however most of the articles it pulls up are outside the region (US) that is selected. For example, i’ve selected Income Tax content, and ONLY U.S. region, but most of the articles are international (and oddly, from India?). Yes i’ve checked many times only US is selected, but this app ignores that setting.
Zite Rocked, Flopboard Flops - Please bring back Zite! 1/5
By Spiffy McDuffster
Flopboard is worse than a ZERO star app. The Zite app was pure perfection, but Flopboard bought Zite and killed it. Flip Flopboard in the trash and bring back Zite!!!
News of all kinds 5/5
By bobby b29
It,s has the best in-depth news,better than can msft
By IRONMAN 416
Great source for information and a great selection of topics 👍🏻
No data usage control!!! 3/5
One half hour session will eat up 200+ MB on your data. So be
Aware of that.
Amazingly, there is no setting to limit data usage. Until then, two stars off the rating for this glaring gap in functionality.
Great feed aggregator, BUT 2/5
A great feed aggregator, BUT, Every page has an advertisement, when I select an article to read Flipbiard injects additional distracting and annoying advertisements. I verified this by going to that article in a stand alone browser. Sometimes there is a full page advertisement that blocks the article with NO way to read the article. This is how I found that Chromw, Firefix, it even edge browsers don't gave this page block.
So if you like advertisements that distract & block content this is your app.
Easy to find articles that intrigue me 5/5
Flipboard makes it incredibly easy for me to find articles that appeal to my interests. I really love the interface too.
Great news 5/5
I come too Flipboard first every morning just to read what’s going on . I love it
Good but not intuitive in reading. Not easy to save Articles 3/5
By Nirmal Kapadia
Information is good but browsing is not intuitive and also saving articles is not easy. Desktop version has really slowed down for browsing
Leftist mouthpiece 2/5
All articles have a left leaning pro Democrat slant .
The best! 5/5
This is been my morning read for years and I would be lost without it… What more can I say?
Simply the best.
en el apple watch se ve lo mas basico de la noticia pienso deberia tener la opcion de leerla completa
ANNOYING AD 1/5
There is no > select Report > choose the "Intrusive Advertising" option. There is only > select Report > and then you can only select "Report" again as an option.
Congratulations! Dear Charter Communications Inc User, We are holding an anniversary celebration for next 7 days (April.07 => April.14) to reward your loyalty. I've done Flipboard Clear Content Cache and cleared the cache on the iPad at the same time but this annoying ad continues to pop-up. I'm not enjoying trying to read Flipboard articles. It's popping up on a lot of different articles.
Very good. 5/5
I read nearly every day.
The time stamps on each article are accurate.
Manipulation and Silencing 1/5
Want to have some fun? Go try to Google anything negative at all about Flipboard. Really dig deep. Yep. That's what it's like to use Flipboard. Expect to have discussions vanish if they become heated. Literally the entire flip hidden from public view. If you somehow find it again through Batman level detective tenacity, it will inform you that it's suddenly "Hidden Sources" even though you have no hidden sources. Try Googling the words "Flipboard Hidden Sources". No hits? That's weird. You'll be gaslighted when you complain about this or be patronized and told "We're looking into it." Go use News Republic or Apple News. I regret ever reinstalling this garbage. Oh, Google that too. "Flipboard garbage" "Flipboard toxic" "Flipboard worst news aggregator". It's so freaking clean it's like Google has been coated with hydrophobic spray. I wonder how much that cost?
Love it. With Flipboard, I read more fre 5/5
I love it. Use it everyday. Many times a day or whenever I'm free.
Flipboard is awesome 5/5
By Awesomism Mom
Flipboard is absolutely amazing for so many things including, but not limited to… Autism, anxiety, recipes, travel, homeschooling etc. etc. we use Flipboard in our home every single day, as does our special needs teenage son!
Bias on the Democrat side 1/5
Flip broad has more left wing articles and show more Trump bashing feeds than the right, I just want to read about other things rather than politics!
Lag in the News 4/5
When i open the news it doesn’t load the whole page only the title and not the rest i have to open it in safari to show the whole thing . Please fix this Thanks!! Otherwise the app is great I used it in Daily basis.
Used to Love It 3/5
I used to love this app. Now it continuously tried to open Safari on its own with what I can only assume is a hack attempt of sorts.
The content is so limited with repeat stories borrowed from one “writer” to the next.
I’m thinking it’s time to delete.
Graphics or Video Playing Above 1/5
Why does the graphics or video above the story? Never goes with the article below it. Today was story about Johnny Manziel. Wanting to go by John now. But video above was some guy talking up close in the camera.
By Dotty Rou
I am an88 yr old woman who enjoys her Flipboard almost every day. I am well informed and current. Thank you⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
