Checkout the helpful App & Web Resource – Flipboard.com #learning #lscon

If you haven’t played with app Flipboard,  you should download the latest version for iOS or Android. It easily allows to select from hundreds of categories and web resources and then easily review them daily or weekly based on your schedule. The web version is also great when you are on your desktop station and want to check out the latest stories.

Great design inspiration in the layout, be sure to look at it on the phone and tablet in portrait and landscape to learn how it moves and reacts to the users preference. I use it several times a week.
