Flipboard adds support for Instagram video, Windows Phone 8 app coming
Flipboard is now supporting Facebook (NASDAQ:FB)-owned Instagram's new video sharing features inside its social magazine applications for Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS and Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android, confirming the change to The Next Web.
Instagram added video options to its core photo sharing and filtering features late last month, letting users shoot clips up to 15 seconds long and introducing 13 unique video filters and related features.
Flipboard brings together stories, photos and videos from across multiple content platforms and social networks, leveraging a swipe-based user interface that draws inspiration from the look and feel of traditional print publications. Earlier this year, the startup rolled out overhauled iOS and Android apps giving users the tools to create and share their own customized digital magazines spotlighting any topic, event or personal interest. All customized Flipboard magazines are public and sharable via email, Facebook or Twitter--readers can "like" items, comment on posts or even set up subscriptions for subsequent issues. More than 50 percent of Flipboard users read customized magazines every day.
Flipboard recently revealed it is building a native application optimized for Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows Phone operating system. "Flipboard will be available both on Windows 8, and its mobile version, so you can enjoy Flipboard on all your Windows 8-enabled devices," developer Jason Pearson told PC-Tablet.
