Flipboard’s Latest Update Focuses on Books
Flipboard today announced the latest update for the excellent social networking and news app, saying that it represents a new way to browse books. The new books section enables readers to browse through literature, cookbooks, travel guides, and other categories, as well as being able to easily buy books that they are interested in via the iBookstore. You will also be able to flip through catalogue-like pages of books, just as you always have been able to with the other sections of the app.
There are a total of 25 customised book sections in all, including Fiction & Literature, Biographies & Memoirs, Business Books, Cookbooks and Travel. The localized sections are available in the following 10 countries: United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, and Spain.
"Buying a book is simple, but finding a book that interests you is hard. There are so many great books out there, waiting to be discovered," said Christina Mace-Turner, head of publisher partnerships at Flipboard. "By surfacing books available on the iBookstore on Flipboard, readers will encounter great books naturally, alongside the kinds of content they're already reading about, so they can explore popular books as well as discover the many thousands of amazing books in the long tail."
