About Flipboard

Flipboard is a news aggregator and social network aggregation company based in Palo Alto, California, with offices in New York, Vancouver, and Beijing. Its software, also known as Flipboard, was first released in July 2010. It aggregates content from social media, news feeds, photo-sharing sites, and other websites, presents it in magazine format, and allows users to flip through the articles, images, and videos being shared. Readers can also save stories in Flipboard magazines. As of March 2016, the company claims there have been 28 million magazines created by users on Flipboard. The service can be accessed via web browser, by a Flipboard application for Microsoft Windows and macOS, and via mobile apps for iOS and Android. The client software is available at no charge and is localized in 21 languages. The original launch of Flipboard in 2010 was exclusively for iPad. It launched the iPhone and iPod Touch versions seventeen months later in December 2011. The company raised more than $200 million in funding from investors and an additional $50 million from JPMorgan Chase in July 2015. On May 5, 2012, Flipboard was released for Android phones, beginning with the Samsung Galaxy S3. On May 30, 2012, a beta version of Flipboard for Android was released through its website. A final stable release of the Flipboard for Android was released on June 22, 2012, in Google Play. The Windows 8 version of the Flipboard app was also demonstrated during the Microsoft 2013 Build Conference and on the Flipboard blog with a video, although no release date was given. On October 22, 2014, Flipboard for Windows 8 was rolled out to Windows Phone devices starting with the Nokia Lumia 2520. In March 2014, Flipboard bought Zite, a magazine-style reading app, from the CNN television network. Flipboard’s content filtering, topic engine, and recommendations system were integrated into this acquisition. The site was shut down on December 7, 2015. In February 2015, Flipboard became available on the web. Up until then, Flipboard was a mobile app, only available on tablets and mobile phones. The web client provides webpage links on desktop browsers and lacks some features of the client software. In February 2017, Flipboard updated their mobile apps for iOS and Android to 4.0, which brought a full redesign to the application, and implemented new features such as smart magazines, which allow users to bundle different things together, such as various news sources, people, and hashtags. On May 29, 2019, Flipboard disclosed a security breach that affected an unspecified number of users between June 2, 2018, and March 23, 2019, and April 21 and 22, 2019, where customer databases including information, such as encrypted passwords and access tokens for third-party services, were accessible to an unauthorized party. All passwords and authentication tokens for third-party services are being reset, although Flipboard noted that almost all passwords were hashed using the strong bcrypt algorithm (except for some using the insecure and obsolete SHA-1 algorithm, replaced by the service in 2012), and there was no evidence that the access to tokens was abused. In September 2021, Flipboard introduced a new personalization feature to allow users to customize their own For You page. When users open the app, they will see a “tune” icon where they can select topics they are interested in. This feature was added to combat doom scrolling and allow users to have greater control of what they see. Flipboard’s sign-up process is simple, as the app lets you create an account using an email address or your Google, Facebook, or Twitter credentials. After you log in, Flipboard urges you to select topics of interest from dozens of categories, including Business, Celebrity News, and Science. Flipboard also has a cool curated news magazine for people who want a quick update on hot stories: The Daily Edition. A new version is released each day at 7 a.m. local time, but, should breaking news occur, stories are added as needed. In addition to news, there’s some levity in the form of a daily song or a “parting GIF” that recalls The Daily Show’s “Moment of Zen.” Flipboard’s customer service department can be contacted using its chatbot. Just visit and click on the support icon in the lower right corner of the screen. You will be asked various questions by the bot regarding your issue and if it is not able to be solved, you will be prompted to send a message to the support team and they will get back to you in 1-2 days via email. You will be asked to provide your first name, last name, email address, phone number, and billing address.
