My Second Favorite App of All Time (June 2011)

There is an application at the apple app store that has 22,000 plus reviews and a five star rating….what app you ask?  Flipboard.

Flipboard changes the way we consume media and actually makes platforms like Twitter easier to understand to the average consumer, but it’s not an app that focuses specifically Twitter.  Flipboard, in my opinion, is the best data aggregator out there.  It makes social media and news consumption familiar by putting all the content in a magazine style format.  Reading a magazine or newspaper is a familiar experience for most of us and when you can take that experience and relay that into an intuitive application one word comes to mind – “winning” :-)

Check out the video to get an overview of how powerful this app really is and how you can use it in your real estate business.

    what’s your first favorite app if this is your second favorite?

  3. Great video, Steve. I have been using Flipboard for a while and I learned a ton from this video. I too use Google Reader for blog post.
    I LOVE to bring my iPAD to the YMCA, plug in some headphones, open Flipboard and catch up on video blogs. Better than watching the weather or MTV!

  8. I’ve using Flipboard since the day I bought my iPad and really like the app. A very close second if you like Flipboard is Zite.
