    Hi All,

    I have a quick question on how the FlipBoard actually works? How are the data being pulled out or rather what's the technique being used to pull the data in to iPad? Few says its just RSS feeds and few something different, Can anyone there point me in right direction?

    Thanks.

    Agreed on the best app for the ipad. I think the concept is kinda what twitter is like, you have favorite sites and it combines them into one place. What ever it does, it does well though.

    Hello all,

    Glad you're all enjoying Flipboard. To answer your question, Arsohoh, Flipboard uses a combination of RSS and Twitter to generate content. We also have Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, Instragram, and Google Reader integrated into the Flipboard, which provides a great deal of content as well.

    Feel free to visit our official support forum if you have more questions or any suggestions. Feedback is always welcome and helpful.

    I have just downloaded the Flipboard app and it's great. My only query is there is some feeds that go into say "News" which don't interest me. Ie if I don't want news from New York times, how do I remove this from feeding into the News board?

    I hope that makes sense.

    Used to be a fan of Clipboard when it first came out but now i never use it. Feels clunky.
    Much prefer the speed and presentation of apps like Pulse where you have greater control of your sources.

    It works the same way as deleting apps. Tap and hold on one of the feeds. An 'x' will appear at the top left corner of all the feeds. Tap it to delete the feeds you don't want.

    Great question. To remove certain sources, you can Hide contributors. Just open a post from the source you would like to remove, then tap on their name / avatar in the lower left and select "Hide". You can manage your hidden contributors by going to settings, just tap the gear icon in the lower right corner of your Favorites page.

    You can also create your own News feed or any kind of section by creating a Twitter list and adding it to your Flipboard. Google Reader folders also work if you would like to create sections from RSS feeds.

    Thanks!

    Regarding this memory issue, this has been a rare and hard to track down issue. Your input would be very helpful in nailing down and solving this problem.

    Please visit the official topic to help us with more info: Flipboard taking 1.3GB in my iPad
