Ever since Flipboard hit the scene, there's been a constant outcry for a tablet-optimized version. Guess what? It's here. So, now you can look at Flipboard on your tablet and it will look better than it did before (if you could even install it in the first place). And that's a good thing.

As you can see, this new tablet-optimized interface looks similar to the phone version, except... different. It makes good use of the added screen real estate, with more info on each page. You'll probably also notice one major difference: it flips from right to left – like a book – on tablets, as opposed to from bottom to top like on phones. I find this motion far more natural, so I'm glad they went with that change.

There are various other tweaks and bugfixes throughout, as well – but the meat and potatoes are what you see. It's Flipboard, on tablets.

    Arent these the same punks who said android wasnt priority and that they didnt see a need to update their app for tablets. Morons. I will stick to currents thank you.

      Well, making mistakes is human... but Flipboard is much, much, much better than Currents.

    I use News360 now - Flipboard lost out one a user because they refused to update their app. Too little too late!

    Flipboard Phone - flips from bottom to top.
    Flipboard Tablet - flips from right to left

    Feedly Phone - slides right to left
    Feedly Tablet - slides bottom to top

    Are they making the differentiation just for the sake of it?
