It took a while, but it’s become my go to source for news 5/5
While I’m still not digging the “flipping” format, I do like he ability to customize what types of articles are presented as well as the variety of various news sources. It has been become my main source for news and interesting articles.
Very biased app. If you do not support Israel or if you say anything negative against it, they will block you. There are plenty of users who make comments wishing people death and spreading falsehoods but they block people with certain view points.
I really do not encourage people to use this app.
also huge bias where they post Fox News, Jpost and other right wing media outlet posts. There is also a flood of fake news articles and magazines with Russian propaganda.
Overall, an embarrassment
Information that I choose, when I want to.... 5/5

Love this format
Leftist shills 1/5
By Topher Gray
A preponderance of leftist dreck mires this app, even though I mostly read about cars, audio, golf and jazz. Beyond that, many of the writers are pitifully I’ll informed or just pitiful. Hollow content, obvious click-bait and shallow as a dry puddle stories are the norm. Note, there is no way to select zero stars.
Intrusive ads ruin the Experience 2/5
Ads between articles, within articles, ads posing as news (fake news a problem for anyone right now?), ads with auto-play video sucking up my data, two-page ads--every update brings more ads. This app is saturated. Can't sift through it all anymore to get to genuine, relevant content. It's shameful. ... Flipboard, you have sold out your user base. And I will never click an ad from your app. No PPC $$ coming your way.
The best 5/5
I use this app daily. It’s excellent!
Great App. Dark theme would be wonderful 4/5
Love the app. Would love to have a dark theme for night reading though...
To the point 5/5
By my news site
Your site is informative, succinct, and refreshingly easy to navigate.
Easy to use with relevant information 5/5
Love the app
Decent, but has problems 3/5
I like the app and use it daily to keep up on headlines. However, the app will sometimes post stories that are literally years old. This has happened multiple times, and Flipboard’s fine-tuning options don’t let you differentiate between new stories and old, they only let you block topics. I’ve tried marking them as “uninteresting”, but I don’t know if they’re getting WHY I don’t care about a story about Tesla’s “new” P85d with Ludacris mode- because it’s 2018 now.
Also, the app will post stories unrelated to the topics you actually want. For instance, I follow College Football. But now I also get stories about women’s college lacrosse and other asinine sports.
I use the app daily, it’s got the sticky factor. But I also get tired of having to skip through a few dozen stories to find one I actually want to read.
Favorite app 5/5
Best app for all information from entertainment to social to news... never any issues with the app itself. Great features. Always works flawlessly! User for many years.
Wish it were easier to get rid of news sources 3/5
I don’t want to see garbage from Western Journal or the Blaze.
Excellent News Source PLUS 5/5
I’m an avid reader, but quite picky. My reading materials must be interesting, engaging, honest, accurate, tabloid trash need not apply.
FLIPBOARD provides all of that and much more in a very convenient format and it gives me the option to add topics, sources, categories. Any sensational FLIPBOARD articles are so because of the subject, not because it is skewed (or screwed) to sell, are not twisted or spun pushing reality to limit.
Architecture or military history, bicycles or science; any or every topic, there’s a days’ reading awaiting me. Photography- the pictures that are indeed worth 1,000 words and the words that are words 1,000 photos.
Good “topic” separation. Definitely “social” news. 3/5
The ability to add comments may become addictive. And there are *many* trolls lurking in the comments.
Now and then I download Flipboard. I swear to myself I won’t delve into comments, but inevitably I do. I have no resolve. (Which shows by the fact that I download Flipboard now and then in the first place.)
Alternatives if you want just to READ the news:
On your browser bookmark Techmeme, Memeorandum, Mediagazer, Wesmirch. Best of the best!
Or just get News360 and add a potload of the feeds you know to be worthwhile. (I added 50+.)
[Update in response to the developer, re “Report” option for offensive posts. Yes, I have long been aware of this possibility. And, heck, for awhile, I even made a practice of Blocking posts (1) in foreign character sets/languages, (2) in all CAPS, and (3) with words ending with “-tard”. But I gave up. Blocking and reporting posts would take more time than I should devote to reading and writing posts. Not healthy.]
Flipboard is excellent 5/5
Flipboard is consistently....perfection. World news, history, design, colorful trends, and special interests, the content and photos are rich and appealing. Flipboard is a kaleidoscope of information. Spend long periods totally engrossed or...Flip through the pages. If you have but one app, this is the one to have.
stop promoting paywall sites 4/5
Like the interface and good representation of stories which are engaging.
Stop linking and pushing paywall sites and stories — sometimes intrusive advertising
Fake News 1/5
By Flip board fake News
To bias with left minded news. In fact verges on fake news
Why show only links to flip.it, no pictures? 2/5
I frequently post pictures to my magazines, but when flipping through them, the app only shows a flip.it URL instead of the picture that's behind that link.
This is very annoying and makes using the app to curate own content much less attractive.
Love the content.
I look forward to reading interesting articles on all sorts of topics. 5/5
It is clear & I can send it to myself to read later or share with a friend.
By jeffaand benny
Use Flipboard often! Very informative! Love the articles...
I liked it better before the update I can't seem to find the daily list of games free for a day; update now I seem to can’t remove certain cards like the Washington post that want a subscription please advise on the removal of the two free article a month cards!!!
The concept is really practical 3/5
I love Flipboard. However wish I could figure how to delete Daily Edition. Can it be done?
To liberal 1/5
Thought this might be a fair news app. It’s not at all that. CNN in the form of an app. Would say FOX News but to left sided. Horrible and I’m not even political. Don’t waste your time downloading
CNN is tabloid News. Similar to the National Enquirer and the Globe. Ridiculous. Flipboard shouldn't allow there CNN’s TMZ like articles on their site. Disappointed.
Please fix notifications on ios11 3/5
Really like the app, great for sharing articles with friends, but please fix the issue where you get the same notification every single day for weeks about an article a friend posted in a magazine you follow. Myself and a friend of mine get these over and over again. Reinstalling the app didn’t help. Thanks.
My major source of news 5/5
I have been using this app for a few years. It's still one of my go-to sources.
Up to date 5/5
Diverse topics, easy to use content, more positive sources
Good Information 5/5
Great news delivered in an outstanding format!
I’ve had this app for years. My buddy turned me on to it and has been great ever since. The articles are usually from reliable outlets and the categories are always up to date!
Really enjoy this app 5/5
This is the way I get the latest news everyday. The stories are timely, relevant and usually well written.
I like it, but there is more room to make it even better 4/5
I giving this time 4 stars, and reason for that is that i think Flipboard can do it better, there so much space to make it better, and i waiting and waiting but it seems nothing changed.
First what i as a user need is that it’s allowed to post videos from ipad.
Second i wish there is more option when we post text with photo, text isn’t shown if you didn’t click on the photo and then on comment etc.
If i want to sell an item with pay pal it should , price should be shown with red colors or some others , colors doesn’t matter in this case, but the thing is that Flipboard is good but i feel like it lost steps with what users wants.
In other hand Flipboard is free and that is really good and appreciate, i just want that we as users can make our magazines real ours, with posting how we want it, the way we want it, with font change and similar , with ours real articles stories, from us, without going and installing other app for doing those articles etc. I know that u understand what i mean.
But that is just my wish as a user of Flipboard which i like to use often.
I can continue with all things that can be better, but i will stop here, and if this what i say changed anything in idea of this app and website , then that means that Flipboard really reading users reviews, and appreciate it, and i will be so thankful for .
And if not, then i’m lost in this cloud of many comments that nobody cares about.
Big RESPECT from me.
The future of news is here! 5/5
My favorite way to see the world from every angle or corner I can find. Everyday!
It’s Simply “Perfectly Perfect” 5/5
By with ❤️
One of my “Go To” Apps any time during the Day or Night ... Down Load it and choose all of your favorite personal ‘interests’ and have a spot of fun while you’re keeping up to date with EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE
Good but!!!! 3/5
I love flipboard been using for a while now
I do have some issues
Dislike publications that post but want you to pay a premium to read the whole story
Tend to mute/delete these
Dislike unknown publications that can be selected for me on main newsfeed most are second rate and can sometimes be meddling type false news. flipboard needs to fo a better job of monitoring these analogs
Also wonder why some pubs are well behind breaking news
But on the whole great job
Pretty good news feed 5/5
I use this daily
Awesome app 5/5
News is enough to read and enjoy. Straight to the point
Love it 5/5
Since a friend recommended me is my place to go thank Flipboard
By ras kobbie
I love the app...allows me to browse through the preferred content. what i want to read and not to.
Was Great. Now It’s a Spam Machine 3/5
This app was great. I’ve been using it daily for years. Does everything all the 5 star reviews say it does. However, in the past couple of months it has become very frustrating by placing full page ads over stories and hiding the cancel button. Allowing publishers to run the first couple of paragraphs then forcing you to their site to read the full article. Extending hyperlinks beyond the ad borders. Allowing articles that are totally product advertising. Of course the app has to be make money. But when you start spamming on 3 articles in a row it becomes a waste of time.
Great interface 5/5
By Daud R
I just started using this app a couple weeks ago. I like the fresh look and presentation compared to other news apps. My growing boredom with reading news has been nipped in the bud.
By El relojero
Es un revista fantástica,muy variada, lo que la hace tan atractiva con la veracidad de su información y la inmediatez de la noticia.
Good job 4/5
I love reading my flip book. It has all kinds of great articles.
Mixed feelings 2/5
Love the info provided but get frustrated that it is constantly closing and reopening at the headlines of a story I am trying to read.
Lo máximo 5/5
Lo conocí esta semana y estoy Feliz
needs better ui 2/5
really dislike the page flipping animation. also would be nice if i could see more than one article headline/summary at a time. too many articles are just webpages that take a a couple seconds to load, compared to the instant native articles. sticking with apple news for better ui and performance.
Prefer to scroll 3/5
Content looks promising. I hate the way the pages flip. I mean it’s very distracting, and I don’t like it at all. We don’t need this gimmick. Please just make it scrolls normally, or at least provide the option.
One of my favorite apps 5/5
Great for keeping up with what interest me.
With the latest update I have noticed when I tap the top of the screen it should flip back to the beginning. It works the first few times then it stops and won’t work again until I force close that app. Works a few times then stops again.
You click tags for “science” and “graphic design” but instead get articles about trump and clickbait cosmo style sexy times junk
