Recently, I tripped over an app that makes it a little easier to manage the information we prefer to read. Flipboard lets you create your own magazines of news articles based on internet articles that interest you and articles collected from other magazine creators. Basically you create your own magazine based on your particular interests. You can share your magazine with others. You can subscribe to magazines that others have created.
All of this gives you a method of organizing and displaying the information that you truly care about and want to be able to easily retrieve. Flipboard is readily available on your smart phone, Windows, MAC, and Kindle Fire or Nook. You can view your magazines and the ones you subscribe to. You can search for topics of interest and share your topics or magazines by social media.
I tried my hand at creating a magazine. Here’s the link to Art, Words, Life: http://flip.it/bVdR2 Or, you can click the magazine icon in the left column. It’s fun and easy. You feel a little more in control of the content. It’s easy to search for information, easy to edit, easy to retrieve your articles, and easy to blow it out of the water when it no longer interests you.
Visit flipboard.com to download the app and view magazines. Tutorials are also available on line.
