needs better ui 1/5
it’s been a while since i last tried flipboard. installed the app today to see if anything’s improved. nope, it’s still terrible. embedded twitter videos don't load. it takes several seconds for the share sheet to appear. swiping from the left edge on a headline page takes you back to the first headline, which is bad when you’re 30 headlines down and you accidentally swiped. no way to change font size for a site. no reader view mode. only one headline per flip. ugly skeuomorphic page flipping animation. apple news ftw. see you next year.
Subscriptions ruined this app for me 3/5
Have been using the app for over 5 years. Now news sites are limiting me to one article a week and are trying to force subscription option on their article landing. I can find news anywhere and won't be using this app any longer until I can read news free with decent arctile options. Plenty of independent news options here that do not require a payment option but I try to get news from as many places as possible so this doesn't work for me like it used to..
Do not download or try this useless this app!!! 1/5
Both iPhone 8 and X will crash constantly after the las couple updates... NO CUSTOMER SERVICE, treated me like crap!!!
Deleting the app 2/5
There is zero curation on this news feed. They apparently allow any articl/site to masquerade as “news,”which, in these difficult times, is very unfortunate.
Too sensitive 1/5
While you’re reading, you have flipped the page prematurely.
Magazines Failed 2/5
I enjoyed this app for several years, but my magazines, one with quite a following, suddenly stopped accepting any new additions. Finally, I deleted everything, reinstalled the app....and the same.
Annoyed beyond words, given the effort and sudden failure.
awesome apps news 5/5
By flip news
I really enjoy Flipboard news apps. Just flip the pages you want to read and select the topic you like to read.
Worst app after version 4.2.7 1/5
Buggy app after version 4.2.7
Todo en una sola aplicación 5/5
Me gusta mucho porque chequeas muchas redes con sólo una aplicación! Ahorra tiempo y los contenidos son de excelente calidad.
Last update, no longer loads. It comes up & quickly disappears. Please fix this.
New update seems to work. Thanks
7/16-already updated my review, works fine. Thanks!
Love this app but broke with latest update! Help!! 4/5
Update: complete uninstall and reinstall of flipboard fixed the issue. Thanks!
This is the best news and magazine app in the App Store!
I am addicted but the program crashes immediately after launching on iOS 10.3.3 after the latest update yesterday! Please fix so I can get my fix! 🤓
Best app 5/5
Use almost every day on my iPad. Highly recommend
Very good app except i cant forward articles to many people at once
Could be better 2/5
By 2 hung low
It’s not a bad app but it does need help, it keeps you sending you stuff you have no interest in no matter how any times you tell it it not to. There are times when you can’t read the articles because of need a subscription and you can’t tell the people in charge about it because there is no option to.
The developers need to work on this app and fix it.
Great app with responsive company 4/5
By Loves Christmas
I previously left a negative review because of an auto-playing advertisement issue, but Flipboard was already on it! They responded that they were working on this issue. It’s not often enough that a company reaches out and explains what is going on, so I’m updating this review.
Very Broken on iOS 10 - no launch 4/5
By Mac Medix
Update: July 2018: deleting & reinstalling the FlipBoard app fixed the problem. While not able to use Flipboard, I realized how much I was using it! I'm glad it is working for me again. I also tried Reddit which is a window into hundreds of amazing communities, but ultimately Flipboard is what I prefer for semi-curated news.
Boosted star rating because I mostly enjoy Flipboard, but only 4 stars because some of its websites are not usable due to ads or require separate subscriptions to view. And some news sites are of questionable validity.
After update on June 1st, 2018 FlipBoard will not open on iOS 10. Can't use it at all. Don't do this update!!
I read Flipboard a lot! It learns what articles I'm interested in, and finds more like that. So it gets better the more you use it.
The shortcomings are that it does not allow landscape view, nor can you zoom in, so some articles are unreadable. Also there is a ton of inline ads. I'm used to ad blockers, so this is even more distracting to me. Overall, I put up with the ads because I mostly enjoy Flipboard.
Custom Reading 5/5
There’s nothing better than flipping through articles that only pertain to your interests from publications you never would have found on your own. Thank you Flipboard!
Okay app, comments are broken. 1/5
There’s no reason to even have the comments section on this app. It stopped giving notifications of when others have commented on a post or mentioned you in a post or directly responded to something you said. The only reason this app is fun is because of the conversations and discussions. All of my notifications are turned on and it simply doesn’t work.
The picks 4/5
Enjoy the different picks. You cover many areas. Like the choices you give.
Twitter videos don’t work 4/5
Please update links to Twitter videos in article links. They don’t work
I LOOOVE IT! Best app I’ve ever had! 5/5
By Squishy panda123
IF I COULD CHOOSE TO HAVE ONE APP, IT WOULD BE FLIPBOARD! 😍
Liberal Bias 3/5
So what else is new?. “Commentating”has become “Reporting.” Walk Away.
Gone seriously downhill 1/5
Used to be more balanced - has now gone full anti-Trump wacky left and also explicit sexual content.
I have not changed my settings or preferences for years. Flipboard has changed. The developers should be honest and admit that they are promoting a Progressive viewpoint and a much more sexualized content. They just don’t understand that there are millions of people who want honest reporting. It is so very arrogant to assume that everyone wants to live in their liberal echo chamber, and it is stupid from a business standpoint to pretend that their bias does not exist.
Love the current news and summaries thereof!
Room for improvements 2/5
Good start. Need more flexibility
Only posts bad media for Trump 1/5
By Viko vuli
It’s a great concept but clearly more left with politics. If it was more neutral I would’ve kept the app.
Flipboard is the greatest 5/5
Flipboard is the most convenient news,information site I ever used on my iPad I give it A+ rating. Very well designed
Best App I've ever had/info excellent 5/5
I'm a super fan of Flipboard. I set it up to find info on things that interested me. I'm always pleased with the content matching what I have requested. Get this app!!
Love it 5/5
By moe happy
Totally current information 5/5
Always the latest news!
Great app missing only one thing... 4/5
By Sark, man
The ability to select and copy snippets of text.
Videos don’t play 3/5
If there is a video in an article, sourced from Twitter or Facebook, etc, when you tap to play nothing happens. New problem that has arisen from the last few updates.
Twitter videos and GIFs 1/5
The app does not play videos or GIFs from Twitter that are embedded in news articles. How am I supposed to enjoy and understand an article where the video is the main story if I can’t watch the video? I have been using this app almost every day for the past couple years, but had to find a replacement because Flipboard support doesn’t seem to care about this issue. After numerous messages to them, they still have not fixed it.
Ace nelsons opinion 5/5

Flipboard is a huge reason I have an iPad! I am computer stupid,but learn more every day searching more than Flipboard and browsing other sights. Hope all will discover Flipboard. Ace nelson
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. 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
Still falls short 3/5
While adequate for the most part, improvements are slow to appear and there are several serious shortcomings.
- fix flipping into a magazine to readily enable flipping into multiple magazines
- enable simple RSS subscriptions for ready addition of sources
- enhance muting and blocking of people, comments, content
Move the product from adequate to outstanding. Adequate today is mediocre tomorrow
Please finally fix the jump to beginning glitch 1/5
So many years and this is still an issue.
I flip for 15 minutes and accidentally move my finger the slightest wrong direction and the whole app flips back up to the top. To continue I have to keep flipping down through all the articles I had just flipped through to find the place I was at. Infuriating! I usually just give up and move on with my day (and miss out on other stories because I cant be bothered with the annoyance again).
Update: thank you for responding. A search has never been in your app before this? I thought it was. Anyway, surely you understand that my problem is not as much as finding a specific article again as it is losing my place in the news feed timeline. I would still be unable to get back to my place once i flip out of the feed.
Buggy for iPad air2 3/5
As you’re in the app, it’ll stick and you won’t be able to turn the page, you’ll have to go back to main page after viewing an article, please fix!
Flipboard Review 5/5
By Bill of the Rockies
Best source of current news, and subjects of interest to me!
Great App 5/5
By Smooth Drive
Best place to find all my news
Flip review conservatives do exist, be realistic. 4/5
Be realistic and unbiased, conservatives do exist and we want fair balanced news.
Flipboard now won't launch 5/5
When using Flipboard on my iPad, the app will no longer launch. I've deleted the app, and redownloaded the latest from the App Store. Still no go. Any advice?
Was great 2/5
By Vandelay Industries 1
Was great ,now horrible.Pictures and videos constantly do not show up on page. Always crashing as well. Been like this for a while. They obviously don't care.
Every thing is click bait!
Too many adds
Too many fluff articles 1/5
I am so tired of those fake staged stock pics that accompany every article. The fast flipping is a neat feature but other than that there’s nothing better vs simpler news apps that don’t rely on gimmicks and silly hot air articles. This is also a data hog. The final straw for me.....today’s first article in Health category is titled “The Manscaping Guide to Healthy and Well Groomed PUBIC Hair.” And of course the article’s stock photo is a male model with long green leaves growing outside his underwear. Bye and good riddance.
No Stop Intrusive Full Page Ads. All the time. 1/5
By Steele Imaging
I had to fight through closing ad after ad, just to read the news.
When you update the app... let us know what you are updating. Not the same stupid “slogan” each time.
Today 7/6/18 I was notified by an email that Flipboard was “fixing” the ridiculous intrusive ads. But NO note on the update description.
I’ll download this app again once I know there are practices in place to mitigate the STUPID amount of ads that show up on every freakin thing I touch.
Until then... I will utilize other sources that I can actually navigate around.
You blew it Adboard. I mean Flipboard. When I see more ads than news, you become irrelevant.
4.2.9 force closing on iphone 6s 4/5
The latest 4.2.9 update is not working. Immediately shuts down when trying to launch the app. Update7/18--Works well on the latest version. TY.
Embedded videos never ever work 2/5
By 236 477 791
The app is fine and more visually pleasing than a normal RSS reader, but has fewer options and you are unable to see content in embedded videos, tweets or gif, which is really absurd. I’m going back to my ugly RSS reader since at least I can see content there.
June 2 Update Crashes with ios 9.3.5 Updated 5/5
Thanks for fixing... works as it should!
Please fix, closes immediately upon trying to open. Useless now!
A+ APP 5/5
The best way I read. I may not burn through a novel, or a best seller. I do most of my reading on Flipboard.
I love this app 5/5
Flipboard is such a fun app to use. It has great articles with some interesting information. I use this app everyday to read up on interesting things.
