Hands-on: Flipboard (finally) lands on Windows 8.1
« on: Nov 18, 2013, 03:31 AM »
  Microsoft is continuing to fill in the gaps in its Windows Store catalog with the arrival of Flipboard for Windows 8.1.

Just like its iOS and Android counterparts, Flipboard's Windows 8.1 app offers digital “magazines” culled from websites large and small. After setting up an account, users can pick from a list of categories, or create magazines based on links from Facebook and Twitter friends.

Users can also follow specific publications, or combine favorite articles into homemade magazines to share with other Flipboard users. Although Flipboard for Windows 8.1 doesn't stray too far from its iOS and Android versions, it does offer a few goodies for Microsoft's platform. Adding the app to the Start screen creates a Live Tile that cycles through featured stories, and the Windows Share charm works nicely for e-mailing articles or posting to social networks. Flipboard's Windows 8.1 app also has a helpful “Discover” tab for finding more magazines.
