Exicon’s Comments:

Pros:

  • Clean and attractive layout with a smooth, intuitive UI.
  • Curated content with links to social media makes it easy to share and discuss.
  • Thoughtful staff picks and good op-ed content that I wouldn’t find on my own.

Cons:

  • Poor date sorting on Sony Xperia. Showing me 2013 articles ahead of 2015 is sooo not okay.
  • Buggy video streaming; video playback randomly stops.
  • Latest news updates can lag by 2+ hours.


 

Overall comment:

Having all my news in one place with a beautiful, easy way to move through it all makes Flipboard a win.
