Flipboard now lets users collaborate

For those of you who have already been creating your own magazines on Flipboard, there’s some good news. The company has announced an update for both its Android and iOS apps that lets you collaborate on creating digital magazines with others.

“Sharing is caring” seems to be Flipboard’s mantra as it has realised that a magazine can be built better when like-minded individuals work together on it. You can now invite your friends or peers who share similar interests as you to become co-curators on your magazine.

You need to first make sure that your Flipboard app is up to date and have a magazine you’ve created to start collaborating. Send out an invite to one or more people. Once they accept, they need to hit the “+” button to start contributing content to the magazine. It’s that simple. The collaborators can also use the “Flip It” Web Bookmarklet to add stories to the visually rich magazines. Once they accept your invitation to become a co-curator, your magazine will start showing on their dashboard too. Here’s a short tutorial on how to co-curate magazines on Flipboard:

Flipboard introduced DIY magazines back in March with its hyped 2.0 update. The app essentially allowed you to create your own, curated magazine that you could personalise. The update first rolled out to iOS devices only and turned into one of the best moves the photo-rich aggregation application could have made. Within two weeks alone, there were 500,000 magazines created successfully. It prompted Flipboard to release an Android version of the update last month too.

To start collaborating with your friend on that fashion magazine, or the sports one, you can download Flipboard for your iOS devices from the App Store or for your Android devices from the Google Play Store.



  1. I’ve been working on the screenplay of a feature film I plan to enter in the Sundance 2011 Film Festival. I’m planning on starting filming in April 2010, and to have a budget by early September this year. I’m starting to look at cameras that I would like to rent or invest in. I can either buy one or two digital Sony cameras, such as the Sony HVR-Z1U, which are about $6,000 each. Or, I can rent an Arri 435 Xtreme (35mm film camera) with a 400 foot magazine. If I do this, then I will have to buy Kodak Vision 3 500T (400 foot) film for the camera. I plan on shooting at 30 frames per second.

    I’m trying to figure out if I should film digital or with film. Film would cost a lot more, plus I have to scan it, but it would give me a lot more advantages that digital won’t.

    If I shoot digital, I will shoot in a 35mm film mode, with 35mm lens.

    What should I shoot with?
