Anyone using Flipboard?

Its good and cool but..

for example : news section.

it pulls rss feeds from cnn. which i already have the app for.

so in the end i read like double time.

then why some pages need to click to view full article, some no need?

frustrating..

only thing i find it useful are twitter, as they load the link up for you.

the news, gaming, all sparsely takes rss feeds from various apps.. making me see double articles..

it is supposed to consolidate everything into 1 app. if you have another app for other stuff then dun add to flipboard.

It's a must have app for all iPad users. There's a thread for this already.

I like it too, but I use it together with Pulse. Wish it will allow for more pages.

Flipboard is really awesome. Never realized it was this good. I do have dedicated news apps but flipboard just displays everything somewhat like a one stop shop. My most fav app HBR today is a iphone only app but flipboard has it so its now like a HBR HD!!

Nothing to do with flipboard. Its the website they are pulling the articles from were not happy. This 'click to view full article' was a compromise. The other alternative was the content had to be completely pulled from flipboard.
