Previously a tablet-only app, Flipboard announced today that its magazines, curated by its users, are now available on desktop computers.
Since the launch of Flipboard 2.0, more than 2 million magazines have been made about every topic imaginable, from immigration reform to neon works of art to Sherlock Holmes. Now, for the first time, all of those magazines can be experienced on the Web. Starting today, when you share a Flipboard magazine via email or social media, anyone who clicks on the link can read it, whether or not they use Flipboard.
The Web magazines were uniquely designed for desktop browsing, all with Flipboard’s signature look and feel. Each magazine has an expansive, full-bleed cover, and pages can be “flipped” from left and right, just like on mobile devices. Curators can continue to add content to their magazines from the Web and other Web magazines, but now they have a significant new way to grow readership.
