Over 500 apps have launched high resolution updates into the App Store today, Flipboard included. As of this morning, there’s a new edition of Flipboard that has been specially designed for the Retina display of the new iPad.
With the iPad’s new Retina display, Flipboard’s images are more saturated and sharp, the typography is easier to read, and in its entirety, it’s more like a reading a print magazine than a digital screen
“As people read more and more of their daily news, check social networks and browse photos from friends on their iPad, Apple’s Retina display brings an entirely new level of enjoyment to that part of our lives,” said Evan Doll, co-founder of Flipboard. “With a more pleasant Flipboard experience, easier on your eyes and more beautiful to flip through, we believe people will spend even more time reading their Flipboard.”
If you’ve never tried Flipboard and you have a new iPad, this is a great time to give it a whirl. Flipboard is one of the best personalized magazines out there, and the improvements make it an even more worthwhile download.
Want to check it out? You can currently download Flipboard from the App Store for free.
