If you're one of the millions of people who love Flipboard's iPad app, you'll know about their sweet new update. In case you don't know what Flipboard is, it's a digital social magazine that aggregates web links and then displays the content like a magazine. My Modern Met was one of the first ones to be featured
on Flipboard back in November 2010 as a 'Pick of the Week' and soon after, to our surprise and delight, Flipboard added us into their Art + Design category as a permanent publisher.
Flipboard's now the #2 free iPad app out there and for good reason. CEO Mike McCue and his team are constantly striving to make the app deeper and more user friendly. In their latest update, they've added a red ribbon to the top right which pulls down into a Content Guide. Search for your favorite person, topic and blog or check out their recommended sections by category.
What we found the most exciting was the addition of Popular Stories. Within each category, like Art & Design, you can now see articles that readers interact with the most. It's a fast way to see some of the best content all in one place. It's a little tricky to find but, basically, all you need to do is click on the category name (in Art & Design, it's the image of those crazy light bulbs).
Finally, just wanted to give a big "Thanks!" to Flipboard for featuring My Modern Met so prominently in the Content Guide's Art & Design section. We're thrilled and honored!
