FlipTip: Create Custom Sections About Your Favorite Topics!

Do you have feeds you love or categories you want to add to your Flipboard? Select the “Add a Section” tile in your Table of Contents. Then, in the search bar, type in your favorite Twitter account, like @hizfuld or Ashton Kutcher, or a topic you care about, like NBA. Then Flipboard creates a new section just for you. It’s your magazine, create your own custom sections!

    Works great ! Was amazed to see my own magazine when i pasted in my Twitter handle @GlennEU
    I shared this method with my friends who have an iPad and they just love that they can now follow my Twitterfeed through Flipboard !
    Heck even i flip through my own “magazine” just for the looks of it :D

    I tend to scan and bookmark when I’m short on time or waiting in lines, killing time on my phone. Can I make a section based just on tweets that I’ve marked as favorites?

    It should work with hashtags, too! That would be great!

    I have tried, repeatedly, to find Lady Gaga’s twitter page using this search function. Nothing came up but LadyGaga Fan pages with little over 100-1000 followers.
    (I did try every combination of Lady and Gaga to get a result)
    I don’t want to judge your programming, because I neither know how to develop something like an app or even how the search function obtains its results, but there needs to be a popularity priority before other ‘fake’ celebrities.
    I tried with some other celebrities pages and nothing came up when searching them.

    But I love the app!
    (also videos never load when pressing play, I have to ‘view on web’ to watch playback.. thats another problem)

    Great feature. I now have all my Twitters organized by category just like I want them. I would like to make a suggestion though – it sure would be nice if you could remove the Facebook and Twitter buttons from the main Flipboard screen and only display them in Edit mode. I don’t use Facebook on Flipboard and I access all my Twitters in custom sections, so I don’t need wither button. They are just taking up space on the screen plus it makes my screen look like I’ve forgot to do something.

    When I try to add an RSS feed to my Flipboard, search can’t find it. What do I need to do differently?

    I am typing the feed URL into search:

    http://www.danshafer.com/?feed=rss2

    I love THE feature where i can create my own flips from a seleceted twitter feed. Is it also possible to combine multipletwitter feeds in one Flip without having to create a new twitter account ?

  8. Orion says:

    When will we be able to control content beyond twitter? What about the ability to add RSS Feeds? Or sync with readers?

  9. Wow, Flipboard is just getting better and better! Great work guys!

  10. Elisa says:

    I love Flip Board but would really love to add Linked In

  11. Kiki says:

    I tried this out… But the Twitter search crashes the app! Not sure why it happens.

  12. Chris says:

    Hey guys, thanks for the gorgeous app! I was wondering if you plan to implement Google reader, as this would be a great way to get you rss feeds in a smart way

  13. BGi says:

    How about letting us DELETE sections (e.g., Facebook)?

    Hi, I love flipboard. On my iPad it is so great to see all my favorite sections right there. I do have a question, I have facebook on my flipboard but it seems to only shows me one contact that I have on my facebook acct. It happens to be a contact I don’t really have interest in, lol. So how do I change that to include more contacts.

  15. EsteVe Almirall says:

    How can I ave moré than 9 sections in the front cover? 9 is far too little !!!!!

  16. Jax says:

    Excellent! I would love to have linked in added! Also the possibility to publish everything on Facebook or twitter or linkedin or any other social network…. Not limited to the app we’re in…

  17. Roger says:

    It would be great to be able to have several twitter accounts combined in just one section, to see together all the feed from various different sources.
    Right now I have to create a different section for each twitter account I follow….

    Thanks,
    Roger

  18. Chris says:

    Flipboard crash when I add a section :(

  19. Frank says:

    Great App. Only thing missing is ability to add our own custom RSS feeds. Once that’s a reality this App will rule!
