When Flipboard first approached The Globe and Mail about making us the first Canadian partner on their social reading app, we were naturally thrilled at the prospect.
Not only does Flipboard offer an innovative, print-inspired reading experience that has earned it Apple's App of the Year and listed it among Time Magazine's Top 50 Inventions, it also presented The Globe and Mail with an interesting opportunity. After all, we thought, we've spent all this time turning our newspaper into a suite of robust, real-time Twitter feeds, why not let Flipboard take those Twitter feeds and turn them back into a newspaper?
Trust us, it made sense at the time. And thank goodness it did, as we are pleased to announce the launch of The Globe and Mail for Flipboard, a visually stunning and insightful reading experience that is ready to be enjoyed on your iOS device of choice.
