Review by: Alford Sales Coordinator – Liggett Crim

All I can say is wow, this is great! It’s an iPad application that takes all of your Twitter, Facebook and other media content and reformats it into a personalized magazine.

Here’s a short video that shows how it works.

I must say, it works as well as you see in the video. It came out last week and the response was so overwhelming that they had to issue an update that took your email address and let you know when it was “your turn” to download your Twitter and Facebook information into the application. I sent in my request in last Thursday and just got my invitation yesterday (Tuesday). It was worth the wait.

This is an actual screenshot of the @alfordmedia Twitter feed from Liggett’s Flipboard

I’m still learning how to customize the interface but I love using it already. There are other content sources available within the Flipboard content manager. I loaded up Wired, Engadget and Ted Talks.
There are a lot of other choices such as the NY Times, Fortune, Nature, Hacker News and custom content from the Flipboard people. I’m sure there is even more coming.

If you have made the iPad plunge, you need this app. It’s a MUST HAVE!
