As a big lover of Flipboard, this news comes as a nice surprise to me, with Flipboard 2.0 now here. Flipboard CEO, Mike McCue, told The Verge that Flipboard 2.0 is "the most epic release we've ever done."




The biggest change allows readers to pretty much be their own editor-in-chief, by allowing you to "flip stories" within the app, or in a browser through a bookmarklet, into their own magazines. Other users can then subscribe to those magazines, and whenever a magazine's owner adds something new or changes something, it updates subscribers' versions as well.


Each magazine from there has the option of being private or public, and over time users will be able to co-edit magazines. The future is looking flippingly good for Flipboard.
