An issue for tablets and smartphones is that while they may be great
browsing devices, most web pages aren't made with 10in or smaller
screens in mind. Content rarely looks as pretty as it should. And let's
be honest, most websites aren't all that pretty at the best of times.
Flipboard is an example of how to make web content feel right at home on
the iPad or iPhone.
It reformats articles from RSS feeds, as
well as updates from Twitter and Facebook, to act as a hub for all your
daily content. Its remit is to make content look and feel more as though
you're reading it from a magazine, with pages that fill the screen and
flip over with a neat animated transition. It's an early step towards
how digital content like this may end up, but it's much better than
diving into Safari for the most part.
